Seven rules for successful simulation

Use these guidelines for better results

Knight, C., Borsig Technologies, Inc.

A lot of what some characterize as "hype" is circulating on engineering analysis. Read most any major engineering magazine and you will see advertisements that make all sorts of claims about capability. You will see terms that refer to nonlinear capability when addressing the physics and see the words "automatic" and "user-friendly" when discussing the model design itself. Take for example a numerical simulation of a compressor impeller (Fig. 1). To get the right results, a good mesh design with correct boundary conditions is essential. When performing numerical modeling, there are seven basic rules you should consider.
