Contact Provider
3 day course
Short Course
For practising engineers and managers, seeking to enhance their knowledge about this rapidly maturing technology.
Cranfield University, College Road, Cranfield, MK43 0AL, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom

This three day course is designed to provide an all-round overview of the theory and applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics.  The course is appropriate for those with no previous experience of CFD who wish to gain a basic understanding of the concepts involved and appreciation of strengths and limitations of CFD.

Topics covered include: a review of fluid dynamics and numerical methods; grid generation; turbulent flows and their modelling; solution approaches for low-speed and high-speed flows; the role of high performance computing; post-processing and visualisation; validation and verification.  The course will offer an appeciation of a leading commercial CFD and visualisation package as well as open-source solutions through direct hands-on experience.  For a full syllabus, please follow the link under "Additional Information" on the right.

On completion of this course you will have an appreciation of the CFD and underlying theory including issues such as the role of grid generation; the choice of appropriate numerical methods; sources of numerical error; the impact and selection of turbulence models; and what is required in order to demonstrate confidence in accurate simulations.

About (Computational Fluid Dynamics) CFD

CFD is generally accepted as describing the broad topic encompassing the numerical solution, by computational methods, of the governing equations which describe fluid flow - the set of the Navier-Stokes equations, continuity and additional conservation equations.

It has grown from a mathematical curiosity to become an essential tool in almost every branch of fluid dynamics, from aerospace propulsion to weather prediction and has received extensive attention throughout the international community since the advent of the digital computer.

CFD is attractive for two reasons. Firstly, the desire to be able to model physical fluid phenomena that cannot be easily measured with a physical experiment, for example weather systems or hypersonic aerospace vehicles. Secondly, the desire to be able to investigate physical fluid systems more cost effectively and more rapidly than with experimental methods.

CFD computer codes, both commercial and in-house, are now considered to be standard numerical tools, widely utilised within industry for design and development.

CFD specialists, are in consequence, in considerable demand, to apply and develop CFD methods throughout engineering companies and research organisations.
