This ​two-day ​course ​offers ​an ​introduction ​to ​ CONVERGE ​v2.3 ​for ​ internal ​combustion ​(IC) ​engine ​modeling. ​You ​will ​ learn ​about ​the ​ CONVERGE ​solver ​and ​modeling ​options ​while ​working ​ through ​a ​ typical ​IC ​engine ​case ​from ​start ​to ​finish. ​Because ​CONVERGE ​has ​a ​ completely ​automated ​meshing ​process, ​you ​do ​not ​need ​to ​spend ​any ​ time ​preparing ​the ​volume ​mesh, ​which ​simplifies ​the ​case ​setup ​ process. ​ ​ ​

During ​this ​course, ​you ​will ​have ​plenty ​of ​time ​ for ​hands-on ​practice ​in ​ CONVERGE ​Studio ​v2.3. ​You ​will ​practice ​preparing ​the ​surface ​and ​ setting ​up ​the ​case ​for ​several ​types ​of ​IC ​engines ​(including ​Diesel, ​PFI ​Spark ​Ignition ​and ​Multi-Fuel ​Premixed).

Upon ​the ​completion ​of ​this ​course, ​you ​will ​know ​ how ​to:

  • Prepare ​boundaries ​for ​motion ​in ​CONVERGE ​Studio ​v2.3
  • Set ​up ​appropriate ​boundary ​and ​initial ​conditions ​ based ​on ​available ​ data
  • Control ​grid ​settings ​throughout ​the ​computational ​domain
  • Set ​up ​fuel ​injection ​via ​spray ​modeling
  • Set ​up ​detailed ​chemical ​kinetics ​for ​accurate ​ combustion ​and ​ emissions ​modeling
  • Predict ​solid ​temperatures ​via ​conjugate ​heat ​transfer
  • Set ​up ​additional ​modeling ​options ​such ​as ​ turbulence, ​sources, ​and ​ volume-of-fluids ​ ​
  • Set ​up ​multi-cylinder ​and ​multi-cycle ​simulations
  • Model ​abnormal ​combustion ​phenomena ​such ​as ​engine ​knock
  • Run ​CONVERGE ​and ​monitor ​your ​simulation
  • Post-process ​results ​in ​CONVERGE ​Studio ​v2.3


Surface ​Preparation ​with ​CONVERGE


This ​course ​is ​intended ​for ​all ​new ​users ​interested ​in ​using ​CONVERGE ​v2.3 ​for ​IC ​Engine ​modeling. ​This ​course ​can ​also ​ be ​used ​as ​a ​ refresher ​for ​experienced ​or ​occasional ​users ​of ​ previous ​versions ​of ​ CONVERGE. ​This ​course ​will ​not ​cover ​surface ​ preparation. ​

Lunch ​will ​be ​provided ​and ​space ​is ​limited. ​
