Ansys Fluent Rotating Machinery Modeling

Course Overview

This course will teach you 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 Fluent. Experience running Ansys Fluent for the training to be effective is essential.


  • A technical education and background in fluid mechanics is recommended but not mandatory. An engineering degree is not required.
  • Completion of the Fluent Getting Started course is required.
  • Experience with Ansys Fluent is strongly recommended.

Teaching Method

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

Learning Outcome

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • setup, run and post-process rotating machinery simulations
  • select the most appropriate method for your application and the required simulation accuracy
