What are the challenges faced in 3-D turbulent flow simulations?
What are practical approaches to simulate turbulent flows?
There are many turbulence models. What are the bases for these models?
What are the advantages and limitations of each model?
How do I select a turbulence model for my applications?
This 2-session, live online course will cover a range of topics 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.
Turbulence models based on Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations are the most common and practical approaches for turbulence simulation. Unfortunately, there is no single universally accepted turbulence model that works for all flows and all regimes. Therefore, users have to use engineering judgment to choose from a number of different alternatives since the accuracy and effectiveness of each model varies depending on the application. This course provides the attendees with basic understanding of complexities in turbulence simulation and introduces them to most commonly used turbulence models with their advantages and limitations.
Strong effort is made for the course to be CFD software neutral. However, examples from some of the more well-known and popular software will be used throughout the sessions.
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 .
|CFDkn3||State the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes equations.|
|CFDkn6||List in order of complexity the range of turbulence models for RANS modelling approaches.|
|CFDco4||Explain why turbulence models are required and classify the range of models currently available.|
|CFDco5b||Review the available turbulence models for RANS approaches and discuss their strengths, weaknesses and their applicability to a range of different flow conditions.|
|CFDco8||Explain the difference between RANS and LES turbulence modelling approaches.|

*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)
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.
