This course teaches the essential skills you will need to start performing basic computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations on your own using Ansys CFX software. Instructor demos and hands-on workshops cover every aspect of the end-to-end CFD workflow, including working with CAD models in Ansys SpaceClaim, creating quality CFD meshes with Ansys Meshing, and all aspects of performing CFD simulations in Ansys CFX. Course Modules 01 through 06 are organized into geometry (Ansys SpaceClaim), meshing (Ansys Meshing) and solver (Ansys CFX) topics, and for each of these three topics students go through the complete end-to-end workflow of a different CFD problem.
- A technical education and background in fluid mechanics and heat transfer is recommended but not mandatory. An engineering degree is not required.
Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A major emphasis is placed on teaching by software demonstration and on the development of a solution to a design challenge from start to finish.
