This is specially designed course for learning Ansys CFD at professional level as well for students . In this course, you will learn how to solve complex engineering problems in fluid dynamics using CFD techniques. In this I have covered each and every step of CFD simulation from geometry to meshing to solution and processing.  You will master the CFD skills on external aerodynamics and turbomachinery in this course.

There are three full high quality workshops included in this course from start to finish (Problems description, geometry creation, high quality mesh generation, problem setup and post processing of results) on following problems:

1. Aerodynamic analysis of Missile using CFD technique

2. Flow analysis of centrifugal Fan

3. CFD analysis of Ahmed Body using different turbulence model and Y+ values.

Who this course is for:
  • Engineering and science students/professional who are using CFD for problem solving.
  • Undergrad, MS and PhD students who want to apply CFD in their research.
