Classic Database

Welcome to the ERCOFTAC "Classic Collection" Database. From these pages you can access the test cases of the original ERCOFTAC Database, which was started in 1995. In 1999 the CFD group at UMIST took over responsibility for it, and following the merger of UMIST and the Victoria University of Manchester it is now administered by the CFD and Turbulence Mechanics research group in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at The University of Manchester.

The database has undergone some re-structuring and expansion to include, amongst other things, more details of the test cases, computational results, and results and conclusions drawn from the ERCOFTAC Workshops on Refined Turbulence Modelling. At the moment, each case should contain at least a brief description, some data to download, and references to published work. Some cases contain significantly more information than this.

The database is open to all fluid dynamicists worldwide. However, to enable us to keep track of how the database is being used it is necessary to register in order to download any of the datasets. For those already using the original database, your username and password remain unaltered. New users can register from the link towards the top of the page.

If you have any comments or suggestions for further improvements, please either make use of the discussion forum from the link on the left, or e-mail Tim Craft or Dominique Laurence.

The links below provide a number of methods for accessing the database.
