The accuracy of a CFD simulation is the difference between the results it gives and the actual values!. I'm guessing this doesn't help you much. Accuracy requirements and benchmark experiments for CFD validation book accuracy can vary depending on a large number of factors - mesh, accuracy of boundary conditions, advection scheme etc.

Validation assesses the accuracy of the mathematical model by comparing simulation results to experimentally measured quantities of interest.

In model validation experiments, the emphasis is on. But unlike many previous experimental studies, this research is planned from the start to meet the exacting requirements of CFD validation benchmark experiments as defined, for example, by.

Verification and validation (V&V) are the primary means to assess accuracy and reliability in computational simulations. This paper presents an extensive review of the literature in V&V in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), discusses methods and procedures for assessing V&V, and develops a number of extensions to existing by: involving fluids.

From a broad perspective, CFD is used today in a variety of ways, from supplementing experiments and testing of systems to certification of the performance, safety, and reliability of high-consequence systems. Assessing the ability and accuracy of a CFD solver can only be achieved through validation and verification efforts.

Traditionally, experiments are performed to discover new physics, determine model parameters, or to test designs. This article will describe a new type of experiment; one that is designed and carried out with the specific purpose of providing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) validation benchmark by: 3.

Oberkampf, Christopher J. Roy. Verification and validation (V&V) are the primary means to assess the accuracy and reliability of computational simulations.

V&V methods and procedures have fundamentally improved the credibility of simulations in several high-consequence fields, such as nuclear reactor safety, underground nuclear waste storage, and nuclear weapon by: Verification and validation (V&V) of computational simulations are the primary methods for building and quantifying this confidence.

Briefly, verification is the assessment of the accuracy of the solution to a computational model. Validation is the assessment of the accuracy of a computational simulation by comparison with experimental data.

Koolifant, Simulation CFD uses a correlation from the US NRC. (CFD Help details here) I know there have been some correlations done based on the Brohaus Roomvent and similar smoke modellign with good success.

You might want to pose this question on the Autodesk CFD forums where you can get more information from current users that are leveraging the smoke capabilities.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a continually developing numerical technique by which complex fluid-flow problems can be solved on computers. To be able to transfer CFD expertise to analyze and design a face-ventilation system, a comprehensive validation study of current CFD tools against mining-related benchmark experiments is required.
