NAFEMS will host the online course CFD for Structural Designers & Analysts in 3 two-hour sessions beginning September 20th.
This course aims to introduce the essential principles of fluid dynamics, important flow phenomena, and basics of Computational Fluid Dynamics process to structural engineers and how CFD can be beneficial for their multidisciplinary problems.
Structural engineers often need to resort to more sophisticated thermal fluid simulations to obtain boundary conditions, loading, performance, etc. for their designs and analyses. Additionally, many engineering problems include strong interaction between structure and fluid. The material includes simple and practical examples and case studies.
