A Practical Approach to CFD using ANSYS Fluent


  • One should be familiar with basic physics concepts like scalars, vectors, pressure, velocity, forces etc

  • The course will start with a review of fundamental concepts of fluid dynamics and heat transfer.

  • So, you do not need any pre-requisite for this course other than having an interest in CFD.

  • “The early you start more the benefit”. CFD is fast becoming a popular simulation-based design tool in industry. Our course participants are from academic background as well as industry professionals. But if you are a student in an undergraduate science degree this is the best time to start learning CFD


In today’s competitive world, simulation has become an important tool for design and operation control. It helps to find quick and accurate results throughout design and manufacturing as well as during end-use. ANSYS FLUENT software contains the broad physical modeling capabilities needed to model flow, turbulence, heat transfer, and reactions for industrial applications ranging from airflow over an aircraft wing to combustion in a furnace, from bubble columns to oil platforms, from blood flow to semiconductor manufacturing, and from cleanroom design to wastewater treatment plants. This simulation software allows you to predict, with confidence, the impact of fluid flows and heat transfer on your product.

This course explicitly focuses on solver and post-processing part of typical CFD process using simulation tool ANSYS FLUENT with a pinch of preprocessing parts like geometry generation and manipulation using ANSYS SPACECLAIM and meshing with a new mesher interface in ANSYS FLUENT Environment. This course is a perfect blend of theoretical foundation and software exposure. This course starts with the CFD fundamentals. Under which you will be learning partial differential Naiver Stokes equations, numerical methods, and finite volume method. Once you are comfortable with the basics of CFD, you will learn the solver ANSYS FLUENT software. Primarily you will get acquainted with the GUI of software. The typical workflow into the solver will get introduced. You will be learning in detail the solver basics such as boundary conditions, solver settings, residuals etc. The special attention is given onto the solver mathematics. You will also get the flavor of different models governing the physics such as turbulence, combustion, multiphase, etc. As you get accustomed to solver GUI and typical workflow, then course takes you to the post processing aspects which are the most important part of the simulation. You will be learning how to extract simulation results, visualization techniques and understanding and interpreting those results. At the end of this course, you will be undergoing three video tutorials which will elucidate simulation of the real-world problem using ANSYS FLUENT.

Who this course is for:

  • No specific educational degree is necessary to take this course. CFD analysis is based on fundamental equations of fluid dynamics and heat transfer; hence participants from mechanical, chemical, civil and petroleum fields find themselves more comfortable than other background. They will also benefit more than participants from other background.
