Forced Convection in External Flows using Ansys Fluent

The teaching package explains the concepts of free and forced convection with examples. It illustrates important dimensionless numbers like Reynolds number, Prandtl Number and Brinkman numbers and its correlations and physical interpretations. The package also describes boundary layer concepts and the equations describing them. Additionally, the package includes forced convection over a plate which has been employed to understand different type of flows and how they affects the convection. Furthermore the course describes the cross flow equations which can be used to understand concepts like the flow over a cylinder, tubes and jet impingement.
