This course teaches the essential skills you will need to start performing basic computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations on your own using Ansys CFX software. Instructor demos and hands-on workshops cover every aspect of the end-to-end CFD workflow, including working with CAD models in Ansys SpaceClaim, creating quality CFD meshes with Ansys Meshing, and all aspects of performing CFD simulations in Ansys CFX.

Course Modules 01 through 06 are organized into geometry (Ansys SpaceClaim), meshing (Ansys Meshing) and solver (Ansys CFX) topics, and for each of these three topics students go through the complete end-to-end workflow of a different CFD problem.

Following completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the end-to-end procedure of simple CFD problems using Ansys CFX
  • Learn how to use the most important functions of  Ansys SpaceClaim Direct Modeler
  • Learn how to  create high quality CFD meshes with Ansys Meshing
  • Become familiar with the end-to-end workflow of simple CFD problems using Ansys CFX

Who Should Attend?

Fluids Engineers, Combustion Engineers, Thermal Engineers and Aerodynamics Engineers
