Three-Session Live Online Training Course - 2 hours per session
Attend the live sessions, or view the recordings at your convenience
FULL DETAILS WILL BE PROVIDED UPON REGISTRATION.
This 3-session, live online course will cover a range of topics, all aimed at the structural designer and analyst who needs to get to grips with CFD, including:
You can either attend the live sessions or take the course on-demand at your leisure.
NAFEMS e-learning gives you the best of both worlds, giving you real, practical knowledge that you can use day-to-day to improve your analyses.
Structural engineers often need to resort to more sophisticated thermal fluid simulations to obtain boundary conditions, loading, performance, etc. for their designs and analyses. This course aims to introduce important concepts to structural engineers for their multidisciplinary problems.
The course will provide an overview of the essential principles of fluid dynamics, important flow phenomena, basics of CFD process, turbulence modelling, heat transfer, and physical and numerical coupling of CFDs and structural analyses in FSI problems through simple examples and case studies.
Note: homework is purely voluntary!
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 .
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.
