Hi guys, I'm a MSc student and my research topic involves developing a Sensor Web application that predicts the spread of wildfire in South Africa. Part of that research involves creating a wind movement simulation using computational fluid dynamics.
I don't have any engineering background and have only begun exploring this part of my work. I was hoping that someone could recommend reading material to me? In particular, I'd like to read up on fluid dynamics specific to wind movement over a terrain.
Also, I've been looking online for API or other tools to assist me in programming the fluid dynamics; one such tool is OpenFOAM. Does anyone know of any others? I'd like a Java API but most likely there are C++ ones more readily available.
Thanks in advance :icon_smile:
