Computational Fluid Dynamics Course (Duration: 40 Hours)

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an interdisciplinary subject encompassing applied mathematics, physics and computational software. Using numerical analysis and algorithms, CFD predicts, visualizes, and analyses how a gas or liquid flows and impacts the performance of a product.



The course trains students in CAD software covering a wide range of applications such as liquid and gas flow with heat transfer; external and internal fluid flows; laminar, turbulent, and transitional flows; time-dependent flow; subsonic, transonic, and supersonic regimes; gas mixture, liquid mixture; conjugate heat transfer; heat transfer in solids, among others. Students are offered projects with expert assistance.
