Theory and Applications
8 - 9 November 2016, Wiesbaden, Germany
The course offers excellent guidance on how to judge which approximations are acceptable and appropriate for solving a wide range of practical problems. Of equal importance is the manner in which the results are interpreted. Advice is provided which allows the correct decisions to be taken, based on results which are known to be reliable. Interaction is encouraged throughout the course, with the planning and design of a complete Computational Fluid Dynamics project and examples of simple hand calculations, mesh designs and solution designs being set for the class to complete. The course is completely code independent.
Who Should Attend?
This course is aimed at practising engineers who wish to learn more about how to apply CFD techniques to their particular problems in the most effective manner. The material that is presented is independent of any particular software package, making it ideally suited to current and potential users of all commercial CFD software systems. The numerous practical examples will be explained without the use of any software program. This course is a must for all engineers aiming to use Computational Fluid Dynamics as a reliable predictive tool for flow analysis.
The course is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS.
