Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics

An opportunity to ensure that your organization gets maximum benefit from using CFD

3-Day Training Course on 3rd to 5th April 2018
organised in partnership with C4D, NAFEMS ASEAN Representative 

*course fees are stated in US Dollars (USD)

The NAFEMS Advanced CFD course provides an in-depth practical and structured understanding of the most important technical aspects of CFD simulation which are the basis for robust CFD solutions across a broad range of application areas.

The course is broken into two parts. The first part covered in the first day recaps the fundamentals of CFD and serves as an introduction to those taking up CFD and a refresher to experienced users. The second / advanced part looks at some of the more challenging CFD capabilities and applications. In particular the first day focusses on the wide range of turbulence models available in CFD software – how and why and when to use these models. The final day looks at other challenging areas such as multiphase flow and fluid structure interaction. We close the course with a discussion of steps required to perform verification and validation of the CFD solution.

Who Should Attend?

The target audience for this course is engineers and managers with limited CFD knowledge who are interested or considering to incorporate CFD in their design practices. The material that is presented is independent of any particular software package, making it ideally suited to current and potential users of all commercial and non-commercial CFD software systems.

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

Remarks by Previous Attendees

“Even experienced CFD users find choosing the right turbulence model a challenge. In his course on Turbulence, Kamran provided exceedingly useful and clear descriptions of the available models in most CFD codes. The course was very helpful in deciding which turbulence model should be used, to provide the best combination of accuracy and efficiency. I would strongly recommend this course to all CFD users.” Keagan Chee @NING Research

Course Program

Registration will be held on Tuesday morning between 8:30am and 9:00am, with the course starting immediately afterwards. The tutor will aim to commence the course at 9am on Wednesday and Thursday and finish by 5pm each evening. Each day there will be short morning, lunchtime and afternoon breaks, timing dependent on the tutor, venue and class.

This course program contains 2 parts that combine lectures, discussions, workshops and exercises.
