Abstract

Present CFD software provides only crude or no estimates of uncertainty in the calculated results. To bring error analysis in CFD to the level of development achieved for experimental data requires a systematic application of error analysis principles. This project proposes to develop an error analysis methodologyand, if continued through Phase II, software to estimateuncertainty in CFD calculations. The methodology will bedemonstrated in Phase I by CFD performance and uncertaintycalculations, comp
