News A group of distinguished professors at St. Petersburg Polytechnic University selected Coolit, from among existing commercially available packages, to be the basis of a new course on computer-modeling tools for students of hydrodynamics, aerodynamics and heat transfer. Coolit was chosen because of its winning combination of accuracy, ease-of-use, and power.

The course development, funded by the Education Ministry of the Russian Federation, resulted in a six month evaluation of available software which left the Russians impressed with Coolit’s unique capabilities and remarkably intuitive user interface which allows students to concentrate on problem solving, not learning software.

The comprehensive course requires no previous numerical modeling or CFD background, so it is suitable for all levels of students and designers. In order to elucidate the underlying physics, it begins with deriving the mathematical models of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Considerable attention is paid to turbulence modeling. The course then covers numerical methods for solving the derived equations and wraps up with Coolit modeling of real life thermal problems.

The course textbook is currently in print at the OKDAIL Publishing House in St. Petersburg. It is expected to be available in July ready for the new academic year.
