Introduction

A Quick Overview

If you have a keen interest in Aviation and Thermal Industries and have been meaning to dig deep and understand a powerful Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool like ANSYS Fluent, this is the course for you. In this 3-month course, we will walk you through Fluent and how it provides fast and accurate results across a wide range of the CFD and Multiphysics applications. 

Fluent contains the broad physical modeling capabilities needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions for industrial applications. At the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of all the background physics within each option in the tool. This sets you up with much-needed skill-sets for a CFD Application Engineer, CFD Developer, or a CFD Service Engineer.

COURSE SYLLABUS

In this module, you will understand what CFD is and its uses. You will also be introduced to the basic governing equations solved and many schemes and algorithms used to stabilise and improve the accuracy of the solution.

  • Governing Equations of Fluid Motion

  • Numerical Discretization

  • Fluid Solver

  • Boundary Conditions

  • Post-Processing

In this module, the focus is to simulate basic compressible and incompressible flows using ANSYS Fluent.You will be introduced to the streamlined workflow on the Workbench tool from geometry creation to the solution post-processing procedure. You will be getting hands-on experience in

  • Geometry Creation

  • Meshing

  • Boundary and Initial Condition Calculation

  • Setting up Solution Algorithms

  • Solving and Post-processing

In this module, the focus is to simulate basic compressible and incompressible steady state simulations. This provides you an introduction to the solution setup procedure for a steady state simulation. You will get hands-on experience in

  • Geometry creating using Space Claim

  • How to setup Steady-State Simulations?

  • Checking for Convergence and understanding when the simulation converges for different Boundary Conditions?

  • How to create Runtime Animation of Engineering Parameters?

  • Project 1 - HVAC Simulation inside a Mixing TEE

  • Project 2 - Performing Parametric Study on Flow inside a Gate Valve

  • Project 3 - Performance Characterization of a Cyclone Separator

Meshing is an important component in CFD analysis. Improper meshing can lead to bad results. In this module, you will learn the different meshing techniques that can improve the solution accuracy with a balanced computational cost. More hands-on experience in

  • Methods of providing local refinement like Sphere of Influence, Body Sizing, etc.

  • Concept of Y plus and its importance

  • Inflation Layers and Controls

  • Mesh Dependence Test



You will learn the fundamentals of performing external flow analysis using ANSYS Fluent. It provides you with the knowledge on boundary layer concept, needs of Y plus and wall functions. Here, we will focus on the following topics.

  • Setting up Virtual Wind Tunnels using the Enclosure Utility

  • Item 2

  • Understand Vortices, calculating Downforce & Drag on a Vehicle

  • Y+ Estimation & Grid Refinement

In this module, you will learn how to simulate solid side heat transfer along with the fluid flow. Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) refers to simulating multiple modes of heat transfer. For example, in one of the projects, you will simulate the heat transfer in an exhaust manifold when hot exhaust products are flowing through it. When you complete this module, you will be able to do the following

  • Extracting Solid and Fluid Volumes

  • Creating Shared Topologies for Creating Conformal Meshes

  • Setting up Volumetric Heat Sources

  • Visualizing Heat Transfer Coefficient Distribution
