Syllabus

This course is full of best-in-class content by leading faculty and industry experts in the form of videos and projects

Course Overview

  • This program is based on the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics theory on internal flows.
  • It especially focuses on simulating the Centrifugal Pump, Superchargers, and Turbochargers.
  • The course will help you understand important concepts like how fluid flows through turbomachine, where the fluid separates and the recirculation zone where it gets generated.
  • You will also delve deep into how the shape of blades and the shape of outlet runners affect the results and plot performance curves for all applications. 

Course Syllabus

On a daily basis we talk to companies in the likes of Tata Elxsi and Mahindra to fine tune our curriculum.

Week 1 - Converge Studio Module

In this module, you will learn how to set up a CFD simulation using CONVERGE CFD. We will provide step-by-step instructions on the following:
  • CAD import and cleanup
  • Decomposing the model into boundaries and volumetric regions
  • Inputting valve timing
  • Choosing turbulence and combustion models
  • Running the case in a parallel environment
  • Post-processing

Week 2 - Surface Preparation

In this module, we will elaborate on surface preparation in complete detail. Here you will learn the following:

  • Setting up the moving boundaries
  • Geometry cleanup

Week 3 - Regions and Initialization

In this module, you will learn the following concepts:

  • Initializing pressure, temperature, and species concentration in different flow regions
  • Disconnecting triangles
  • While setting up the case, one will come across complex problems where there will be different zones where the value for any thermodynamic properties like Pressure or temperature will be different and set up the case accordingly, CONVERGE provides a very good feature of creating a region (volumetric region) in which there will be particular value for the pressure, a temperature that user will provide according to his needs.
  • A very good example of the application of regions and initialization is a SHOCK TUBE problem in which there are 2 chambers filled with fluid, one at high pressure and the other at low pressure and these 2 regions are separated with the help of the diaphragm. Now to set up such cases, a feature of Regions and Initialization seems to be important and useful.
  • After creating 2 regions, we need to provide initial values to both regions accordingly and this is how students will learn to create volumetric regions.

 

Week 4 - Turbulence Modelling

In this module, students will learn how turbulence is modeled and simulated in a state-of-the-art CFD solver. You will learn about the different classes of turbulence models and understand their merits and demerits. 

  • Here, students will learn about the RANS approach to model turbulence.
  • You will get to appreciate the mathematics involved behind RANS and will learn the derivation part as well.
  • You will learn various turbulence models available like (RNG k-ε, k-ω SST, etc) and understand which model is suitable for which application.
  • Mostly, RNG k-ε suits best for Internal flows and k-ω SST suits best for external flows.

 

Week 5 - Cavitation Modelling

  • In this module, you will learn how Cavitation can be simulated.
  • We will be focussing on the Volume of Fluid Method (VOF).
  • You will also learn about VOID FRACTION which is the basis of the VOF method.

Industry Projects

Our projects are designed by experts in the industry to reflect industry standards. By working through our projects, Learners will gain a practical understanding of what they will take on at a larger-scale in the industry. In total, there are 4 Projects that are available in this program.

Performance Characterization of a Centrifugal Pump

In this project, you will perform a simulation of flow through a centrifugal pump and plot performance curves from the simulation results.

Supercharger Flow Analysis

In order to understand the working of a supercharger, in this project, the students will simulate the flow in a supercharger. They should validate the mass flow rate and outlet temperatures.

Turbocharger Flow Analysis

In this project, the students will analyse the flow in a turbocharger. They will perform simulations for obtaining the performance curve

Flow-through Winkyl-Hoffer Nozzle (2D Cavitation)

The aim of this project is to understand cavitation and its relevance with pressure differences. Here, we use a Winkul-Hoffer Nozzle to understand this phenomenon.
