July 26th - August 9th, 2017
06:00 PDT / 09:00 EDT / 14:00 BST / 15:00 CEST
Three-Week Online Training Course - One 2.5 hour session / week
Engineering Board PDH Credits: 7.5 hours*
This course offers the attendees the fundamental knowledge for using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in real life engineering applications and complex flow problems through a simple and moderately technical approach. This course describes the steps in the Computational Fluid Dynamics process and provides benefits and issues for using CFD analysis in understanding of complicated flow phenomena and its use in the design process. Best practices for reducing errors and uncertainties in Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis are also presented in the course.
This newly revamped course is now more focused on practical application of CFD including new examples and alternative approaches. This course aims to provide the attendees the fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics prior to embarking on any real Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation project or undergoing vendors’ software training.
The target audience for this course is engineers and managers with limited CFD knowledge who are interested or considering to incorporate Computational Fluid Dynamics in their design practices. Additionally, engineers supporting or being supported by Computational Fluid Dynamics analysts can benefit from this course.
Note: homework is purely voluntary!

Best practices for reducing errors and uncertainties in Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis are also presented in the course. Many of the governing equations will be presented for illustration purposes and they would be dealt in depth in this course.
Students will join the audio portion of the meetings by utilizing the VoIP (i.e. headset connected to the computer via headphone and microphone jacks) or by calling into a standard toll line. If you are interested in additional pricing to call-in using a toll-free line, please send an email to: e-learning @ nafems.org .
Engineers and managers with limited Computational Fluid Dynamics knowledge who are interested or considering to incorporate Computational Fluid Dynamics in their design practices.
The material that is presented is independent of any particular software package, making it ideally suited to current and potential users of all commercial and non-commercial CFD software systems.
E-learning classes are ideal for companies with a group of engineers requiring training. E-learning classes can be provided to suit your needs and timescale. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
Note:This is a three-week course. Each session represents one 2.5-hour session each week.
Telephony surcharges may apply for attendees who are located outside of North America, South America and Europe. These surcharges are related to individuals who join the audio portion of the web-meeting by calling in to the provided toll/toll-free teleconferencing lines. We have made a VoIP option available so anyone attending the class can join using a headset (headphones) connected to the computer. There is no associated surcharge to utilize the VoIP option, and is actually encouraged to ensure NAFEMS is able to keep the e-Learning course fees as low as possible. Please send an email to the e-Learning coordinator (e-learning @ nafems.org ) to determine if these surcharges may apply to your specific case.
Just as with a live face-to-face training course, each registration only covers one person. If you plan to register a large group (10+), please send an email to e-learning @ nafems.org in advance for group discounts.

Engineering Board PDH Credits
*It is your individual responsibility to check whether these e-learning courses satisfy the criteria set-out by your state engineering board. NAFEMS does not guarantee that your individual board will accept these courses for PDH credit, but we believe that the courses comply with regulations in most US states (except Florida, North Carolina, Louisiana, and New York, where providors are required to be pre-approved).
