Announcements NAFEMS, the only independent not-for-profit organisation with the aim of promoting the effective and reliable use of CFD, addresses this requirement by providing this two day example-driven, practical course in Coventry, UK on 13th and 14th May 2009.

The Practical CFD Analysis Training Course offers excellent guidance on how to judge which approximations are acceptable and appropriate for solving a wide range of practical problems.

Of equal importance is the manner in which the results are interpreted. Advice is provided which allows the correct decisions to be taken, based on results which are known to be reliable. Interaction is encouraged throughout the course, with the planning and design of a complete CFD project and examples of simple hand calculations, mesh designs and solution designs being set for the class to complete. The course is completely code independent.

Who Should Attend?
This course is aimed at practising engineers who wish to learn more about how to apply CFD techniques to their particular problems in the most effective manner. The material that is presented is independent of any particular software package, making it ideally suited to current and potential users of all commercial CFD software systems. This course is a must for all engineers aiming to use CFD as a reliable predictive tool for flow analysis.

The course is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS.
