  1. This subject has been coming a long time. NASA described some recommendations in 2008, as follow: https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/wind/valid/tutorial/overview.html In addition, the CFD Online site also presents some case studies, as follows: https://www.cfd-online.com/Wiki/Validation_and_test_cases Good luck!
  2. Hello there! Since the 1990s, computer simulation has become the most important tool for developing and / or improving various equipment for more daring projects. Based on the Navier-Stokes formulation, turbulence flow models, finite volume method and others in the case of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element methodology in the case of structural analysis (FEA), both tools required an upward computational cost, considering Random Access Memory (RAM), Number of Processors and Parallel Processing, typical features of High Performance Computers (HPC). On the other hand, the validation of computational simulations in the comparison of experimental tests requires simple physical models. The industrial process requires complex physical models, where there is apparently no validation of CFD or FEA cases. This becomes a restriction. Given this situation, what can we do? Does anyone have a suggestion and / or comment to try a potential solution to this restriction? Feel free to comment.
