ANSYS Fluent is a powerful computational fluid dynamics software package used to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions for industrial applications. Fluent also offers highly scalable, high-performance computing (HPC) to help solve complex, large-model computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations quickly and cost-effectively.

Course Syllabus:

Introduction to CFD:

     The principles of CFD and governing equations will be covered in details.

Boundary conditions:

     Types of boundary conditions and their fidelity.


Incompressible flow:

     Solving problems using the incompressible nature of liquids and flowing gases.

  • Internal flow - Flow through pipes.
