Ansys RBF Morph Fluids Getting Started (Self-Paced Available)

Course Overview

In this introductory course, you will understand what radial basis function (RBF) mesh morphing is and learn how to install and use Ansys RBF Morph Fluids. The course is organized into 7 lessons and you will be guided step by step in discovering tools and functionalities of the software. Supporting material is provided to clarify and deepen certain key concepts about mesh morphing.


  • Ensure that you have license for Ansys RBF Morph Fluids and the software has been correctly installed. 
  • Basic knowledge of Ansys Fluent is required.

Teaching Method

Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.

Learning Outcome

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

  • Install and independently use RBF Morph Fluids.
  • Navigate the RBF Morph material.
  • Understand and use the basic tools of RBF Morph Fluids.
  • Set up a mesh morphing cases independently on a new computational grid.
  • Perform parameter-based shape optimization using RBF mesh morphing and generate Response Surfaces based on shape parameters.
  • Use mesh morphing to project the computational grid onto external surface file (STL).
  • Use the shape parameters created by RBF morph in Ansys optiSLang.
  • Perform parameter-free shape optimization using RBF mesh morphing and adjoint.
  • Perform mesh morphing for FSI analysis.
  • Create shape parameters to build a static ROM using Ansys Static ROM Builder.
