CFD 101: ANSYS Fluent Introductory

$1,980 USD per person

Public Sessions: 3 days
Online Sessions: 6 days

A technical education and background are recommended but an engineering degree is not required.

On day 1 the training will focus on geometry creation and specifically focus on ANSYS SpaceClaim. If you know that you will be using ANSYS SpaceClaim, then you should definitely plan on attending day 1 of training. Even if you don't plan on using ANSYS SpaceClaim, this day of training could still be helpful since we will discuss some things to think about when creating geometries for CFD analyses and we will also talk about the geometry cleanup tools in ANSYS SpaceClaim.

On day 2 the training will focus on watertight geometry workflow as well as surface and volume meshing. If you will be using another program to create your CFD meshes, you may still find this day of training to be helpful because we will talk about some of the important things that you need to consider when creating CFD meshes.

On day 3 the training will focus on the FLUENT solver as well as best practices, turbulence modeling, heat transfer and transient flow
