This independent, software-neutral course will provide you with a solid foundation in the basic theory and application of the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods, helping you to analyse your own and 3rd party simulations effectively and accurately.
Who Should Attend?
This course has been designed for delegates with no previous CFD experience; it is useful for designers moving into the field of computational fluid dynamics. Understanding the basics will help you get the most out of CAD based CFD programs as well as dedicated and open source software. It is assumed that:
- The user does not have any previous experience and is predominantly from a design engineering background.
- The user has enough engineering expertise to evaluate analysis results and determine if they are reasonable.
The course is also useful to engineers who need to write specifications for fluid dynamics projects and will help interpret and check the results at the conclusion of these projects.
Registration / Further Information
This course will run 9AM GMT – 5PM GMT for all dates.
