In today’s rapidly changing world, CFD has become predominant in industries like power generation, aerospace, process industries, automotive, and chemical engineering to enhance product performance. For the engineers and designers who work in these industries, knowledge of CFD is very beneficial.
This 5-session course develops your skills both on the theoretical aspects and practical aspects of CFD. Participants will first study the theory of Computational Fluid Dynamics and then learn about meshing techniques, incompressible and compressible turbulent flows, passive scalar mixing, multiphase flows and advanced concepts such rotating machinery and porous media.
All topics are illustrated by hands-on examples using SimScale, our web-based engineering simulation platform. Participants can access SimScale with the Free Community Plan or with a Professional Plan. Hands-on exercises and quizzes will provide an opportunity to put what is learned into practice.
This 5-session CFD course is hosted on-demand which allows you to work at your own pace.
In each session, you will
Session 1: Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics
Session 2: CAD Preparation and Meshing in CFD
Session 3: Incompressible and Compressible Turbulent Flows
Session 4: Passive Scalar Mixing and Multi-Phase Flows
Session 5: Advanced Concepts-Rotating Machinery and Porous Media
By the end of the course, you will have a firm understanding of how to use CFD in the product development process and be fully equipped to run successful simulations on the SimScale platform.
Pawel has a PhD in Environmental and Industrial Fluid Mechanics from University of Trieste. He has experience in the areas of Fluid Mechanics, CFD solvers, open-source CFD solvers (OpenFOAM), and cold processing of steel. At SimScale, he provides technical support and training for our professional users.
This course is aimed at engineering and design professionals who want to learn how to use CFD to improve their product development process.
It's helpful for those who are not specialized analysts but need to use computational fluid dynamics as well as for those with experience with other simulation tools who would like to learn the workflow for CFD on the SimScale platform.
