The course will also be useful for R&D Managers who wish to introduce CAE in their organization. Faculty/students from universities desirous to undertake CAE based investigations may also find this course useful.
The workshop will have introductory lectures and use of the corresponding technology in the morning on the following topics:
- Fluid dynamics
- Stress analysis
- Corrosion engineering
- Ship dynamics
- High Performance Computing
An appropriate lecture on computer aided engineering will be followed by a demonstration in the afternoon.
The ability to simulate real life problems and scenarios is the essence of CAE. CAE consists of a suite of software, each with its own goal. Computational Fluid Dynamics can simulate the motion of a ship, predict drag, and help predict the dynamics of its motion. Computational electromagnetics can predict the visibility of a ship to radar.
Simulation of electrostatics can predict the corrosion rates and help in reducing it. Computational structural mechanics helps in predicting the failure of hulls and optimizing the ship for its weight, etc.
On the whole, CAE helps designers and operators in understanding the physical and chemical processes that matter in design, production and operations of marine vessels.
The present course aims to train the participants in all these simulation techniques such that the participant can plan for an integrated design process in his organization. Training in utilization of HPC will enable him to solve large real life problems.
