Organizer: NAFEMS
Type of Event: Course, International

The course 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. 

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 
Sources of error 
Interpretation of results 
Attendees should have a graduate engineering background 
including some knowledge of fluid dynamics and engineering 

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
