CFD Principles (Online)
- Session 1
22nd November 2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Learning or reviewing the fundamentals of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), including best practice, will enable you to get the most out of your own simulation software or assess the CFD undertaken by others with confidence.
This online version of our well established classroom-based course will provide you with a solid foundation in the basic theory and application of CFD methods – helping you to run and critically evaluate simulations effectively and accurately.
The training sessions combine formal presentations with a number of practical workshops to reinforce learning. We use the flexible and robust GoToTraining web conferencing system.
Who Should Attend?
Designers, engineers, researchers, students and managers who are currently or may in the future be involved with CFD within their role.
This course is suitable for anyone using CFD software directly, involved in specifying CFD projects or reviewing, checking and interpreting results within CFD reports.
As a fundamentals course, it is assumed that delegates do not have any previous experience. However, it can also serve as a refresher course if you have some existing CFD experience obtained from work or academic studies.
This online course is split into 3 two hour sessions over consecutive weeks, held between 2.00pm – 4:00pm.
The consecutive dates for our next two courses are as follows:
- 9th Aug, 16th Aug and 23rd Aug
- 22nd Nov, 29th Nov and 6th Dec
Please select the week that you wish to begin the course on the form opposite.
This special price is available to both existing Wilde Analysis clients and companies & academic establishments who have not worked with us before.
Delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
