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 three day example driven, practical course.

The course, to be held 14-16 May 2013, offers excellent guidance on how to judge which numerical approximations are acceptable and appropriate for solving a wide range of practical problems.

Of equal importance is the manner in which 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 understand CFD methods and learn how to apply CFD techniques to their particular problems in the most effective manner. All aspects of successful CFD application are covered, including:

  • The Finite Volume Method
  • The computational mesh
  • Turbulence
  • Sources of error
  • Interpretation of results
  • Validation

Attendees should have a graduate engineering background including some knowledge of fluid dynamics and engineering mathematics

The material that is presented is independent of any particular software package, making it ideally suited to current and potential users of all commercial finite volume method CFD software systems. Anyone who wishes to use CFD in an industrial context would benefit from this course and it is a must for engineers who wish to use advanced CFD as an effective predictive tool for industrial flow analysis.

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