Students: 218, Price: $29.99

Students: 218, Price:  Paid

This course will show you the skills that are used by the top Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) engineers to separate themselves from the beginners. You will learn how to carry out a mesh sensitivity study correctly using Richardson Extrapolation. This is a technique that is recommended by the Journal of Fluids Engineering and is often not taught in engineering classes. You will also learn how to choose the right RANS turbulence model (k - epsilon, k - omega SST) and how to get the most out of your contour plots and line graphs. Worked examples are provided throughout the course, with python code and Excel spreadsheets. By the end of the course you will be confident and ready to apply the skills in your own CFD calculations. The lessons in this course can be applied to any CFD code, so it does not matter what CFD code you use (Fluent, CFX, OpenFOAM etc.)

This course provides the complete fundamentals of Ansys Turbogrid meshing for turbomachinery components.

The course contents include demonstration of mesh generation for axial compressors, centrifugal compressors and axial turbines. There are two NASA test cases included in the course. The mesh generated for these models can be used for CFD validation purpose. Two assignments are provided in this course for practicing mesh generation using turbogrid. This will help to get hands on experience with the software.

There is a bonus part in the end, which demonstrates how to import the generated mesh into Ansys CFX, solve and post-process the results. This is to provide basic understanding of the operation of gas turbine components.

This course is a follow-up to my Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics course.  In this course we extend the capabilities of the two-dimensional, incompressible Navier-Stokes solver developed in the first course to include enhancements such as unsteady flow capabilities, second-order and blended interpolations for the convection terms, pressure, symmetry, and periodic boundary conditions, mesh clustering, the energy equation, and perhaps other topics as deemed appropriate. (Recently added a Poisson solver using red/black iteration scheme with OpenMP for parallelization.)  All codes are written in Fortran90 and are available for download, as are the course notes.  Upon successful completion of the course students should be able to develop their own codes or modify the available codes to solve problems of varying complexity.  To get the maximum benefit from this course, I recommend that students complete the first course, or have an equivalent background.

COMSOL Multiphysics complete course

Students: 109, Price:  Paid

This comprehensive course is designed for students, engineers, researchers... to be able to use COMSOL Multiphysics from scratch to conduct physical simulations in a simple and practical way. Never mind if you have no experience in Finite Elements or COMSOL, you will be equally capable of understanding everything and you will finish the course with mastery of the subject.

After several years working as an Industrial Engineer, I have realized that mastering the Finite Elements to solve physical problems today is something very necessary in engineering and is really sought. And in addition, the demand is increasing. Knowing how to carry out this type of simulation can give you many job opportunities and many economic benefits.

And as if that were not enough, solving these simulations in COMSOL will offer you even more advantages, since it is a very complete software that offers you a multitude of physical modules for simulation, such as structural, mechanical, frequency or CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)... For this reason, in just a few years it has become one of the leaders in the sector and one of the programs most sought by companies in the figure of the engineer.

The big problem has always been the complexity to learn that it requires, since its understanding is not easy. In this course I try to facilitate this entire learning and improvement process, and you will be able to carry out and understand your own problems in a short time, as well as their physical sense and the logic of the procedure, thanks to the step-by-step and detailed resolution of 5 complete on-demand problems in which you will master the main and different physical applications of COMSOL Multiphysics:

  • STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS: With this problems you will learn to carry out structural simulations and and will understand solid mechanics physics thanks to two problems; a static analysis of a wrench (stationari study) and a dynamic analysis (time dependent study)

  • FLOW PROBLEMS: You will be able to perform a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) step by step through a laminar flow problem past a cylinder, and you will also solve another problem of Fluid-Structure Interaction

  • FREQUENCY ANALYSIS: You will be able to understand acoustics physics and eigenfrequency study, solving problems of natural frequency analysis of structures and beams

In other words, what I want is to contribute my grain of sand and teach you all those things that I would have liked to know in my beginnings and that nobody told me. In this way, you will be able to learn to solve different types of problems quickly and make versatile and complete use of COMSOL software. And if that were not enough, I will be at your disposal and I will answer all the questions you want in the shortest possible time.

ICEMCFD Master Class (Level 2)

Perfect meshing for CFD

Meshing is the most important part of any CFD process. Meshing is the process to divide continuous domain in discrete parts known as control volumes. After discretizing, this mesh is provided to numerical (CFD) solver to solve algebraic equations arising from partial differential equations of continuous domain. Therefore meshing is most important part of any CFD process and accuracy & stability of CFD process largely depends on good quality mesh.

It is estimated that around 70% time is spent on meshing in any CFD project. But after taking this course, you will be expert in meshing and you can generate meshes in very less time than rest of CFD community.

In meshing you can either go with full hexa meshing or tetra meshing (with prism layers). Hexa meshing is more of an art and requires great deal of time. But yields most accurate solution. It also requires less number of nodes and hence it require less compactional resources and less solution time. It also avoids numerical errors /numerical diffusivity  as you can observe in tetra meshes. It is estimated that tetra meshes requires as much as five times of mesh size as that of hexa meshing.

In this course you will enhance your ICEMCFD hexa meshing skills on more complicated geometries such as circular cylinder, 3D airfoils, stirred tank, wind turbine etc. Here you will each and every trick/tip of business of CFD meshing. After going through this course, you will be able to create perfect grid according to CFD simulation requirements and hence will be able to get most accurate results in less time.

We will cover different topics as well which will increase effectiveness of hexa meshing.
