    In the rapidly advancing modern world, scientific and technological understanding and innovation are reaching new heights. Computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer have emerged as powerful tools, playing a pivotal role in the analysis and design of complex engineering problems and processes. With the ability to mathematically model various engineering phenomena, these computational tools offer a deeper understanding of intricate dynamics before the physical prototype is created. Widely employed as simulation tools, computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer codes enable the virtual or digital prototype development of products and devices involving complex transport and multiphasic phenomena. They have become an indispensable element of the agile product development environment across diverse sectors of manufacturing, facilitating accelerated product development cycles.
