Team from UCT smashes eight-year standing Water Rocket World Altitude Record by a massive 33%
At CFW it is recognised that fan design prototyping may be significantly enhanced by the addition of computer based virtual wind-tunnel or computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and has therefore teamed up with the Industrial CFD group at the University of Cape Town.
InCFD is a research group based with-in the department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cape Town (UCT). The prime objective is to develop state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling technology and expertise for the express support of industry. This is done via the uncompromising pursuit of innovation through fundamental research which carries the hall mark of excellence. InCFD is home to the South African Research (SARChI) Chair in Industrial CFD.
