Concepts NREC, together with Fluent, Inc., will present "CFD for Turbomachinery Design" in White River Jct., Vermont, October 12 - 14. This course is based on the unique synergy of Concepts NREC, with many years’ experience in the design of all types of turbomachines, and Fluent, a leading provider of high-end CFD solutions. These complementary perspectives have been brought together to offer a course that is focused on how modern CFD tools can be properly and effectively used in turbomachine design and analysis.
On day one, CFD fundamentals will be reviewed along with critical concepts that must be understood when running CFD on a turbomachinery problem. Some recent trends on CFD use will also be presented.
The focus of day two is on the integration of CFD into the design and development process. The instructor’s experience of successes and failures with CFD are presented. It is important for engineers to understand where CFD can really help and where it should not be relied upon without confirmatory studies. In some cases CFD may be a cost-effective alternative to experimental testing, but as in design, it must be used with caution. The interaction between CFD analysis and laboratory studies is considered in depth.
On day three, the focus will shift to advanced topics in CFD. Examples will be presented showing how CFD can solve very complex problems such as acoustics, multiphase flow including wet steam and cavitation, real fluid properties, turbulence, and meshing of complex geometry.
