ANSYS CFX Rotating Machinery Modeling


Flows within rotating systems occur frequently in science and engineering applications, from turbochargers to gas turbine engines to mixing tanks and wind turbines and numerous others.  Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) now plays a central role in the design and analysis of these systems.

In this course, students will learn the major classes of rotating machinery problems, steady state and transient simulation methods and the details of conducting accurate simulations of rotating machinery systems using ANSYS CFX. Students must have experience running ANSYS CFX for the training to be effective.

Learning Outcome

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to setup, run and post-process rotating machinery simulations, selecting the most appropriate method for their particular application and the required simulation accuracy.


  • A technical education and background but an engineering degree is not required.
  • Completion of the Introduction to ANSYS CFX course is required.
  • Experience with ANSYS CFX is strongly recommended.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.

Learning Options: Training materials for this course are available with a ANSYS Learning Hub Subscription. If there is no active public schedule available, private training can be arranged. Please contact us.
