Get the correct guidance on how to understand CFD methods and techniques
This course offers excellent guidance on how to judge which numerical approximations are acceptable and appropriate for solving a wide range of practical problems. Of equal importance is the manner in which 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 CFD 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.
All aspects of successful Computational Fluid Dynamics application are covered, including:
Practising engineers who wish to understand CFD methods and learn how to apply CFD techniques to their particular problems in the most effective manner.
Attendees should have a graduate engineering background including some knowledge of fluid dynamics and engineering mathematics
