This course will aware the students about the use of Autodesk® CFD software. With a hands-on, practice-intensive environment, students will be acquiring the knowledge required for working in the environment of Autodesk CFD for setting up and conducting thermal and flow analysis on part and assembly models.

Topics covered:

  • Open and explore the Autodesk CFD.
  • Use of Model Assessment Toolkit for investigating model suitability and use of Autodesk® SimStudio Tools for making required changes to the CAD geometry.
  • Creation of interior and exterior fluid volumes.
  • Setup for analysis with application of suitable materials, boundary conditions and mesh settings.
  • Mesh refinement for obtaining a proper solution 
  • Applying solver settings for running your analysis and merging it to acceptable solution.
  • Use of visualization tools for comparing summary images, values, and plots of your analysis for comparing design and scenario results of Autodesk CFD analysis
  • Running a validation checklist to conduct a final solution
