Course Overview

  • This course gives an introduction to numerical simulation, types of flow, aerodynamic heating, international standard atmosphere, and a brief insight into the different types of turbulence models and the need for turbulence.
  • Students will perform tetra/prism mesh generation using ICEM CFD, and simulate the aerodynamic analysis on an aerofoil.
  • In the later part of the program, students will work on moving reference and moving mesh approaches, finally, the course concludes by giving an introduction to Broadband Noise modeling using ANSYS FLUENT where the acoustic effects due to aerodynamic flow are analyzed
  • By the end of the course, the students will be able to perform meshing on ICEM CFD, will get an idea of thermal and acoustic effects due to the flow of fluid around a body.
