CFD is now accepted to be the integral part of the 
engineering design by major companies around the world. 
Over the past few years, increase in computational power 
and availability of Open source/low cost solver has 
showcased CFD as a tool. Design engineers and technical 
analysts use this approach to model fluid flow.

CFD provides chemical engineers with detailed insights 
into the fluid flow phenomenon in equipment. This allows 
engineers to understand the implications of equipment 
design and operating conditions. Unlike conventional 
correlations, CFD can account for non-standard 
modifications that are incorporated in equipment over the 
course of its active life. Thus predictions using CFD 
analysis are far more realistic than the predictions of 
the correlations which are based on standard lab or pilot 
scale equipment. This makes CFD analysis imperative 
during process optimization, scale-up and 
intensification. Without building a physical model, it 
allows various physics to be examined in a virtual 
setting. Equipment at its full-scale can be analysed, 
thereby eliminating scale-up related issues.

The objective of the course is to introduce process 
engineers to CFD analysis and discuss how CFD results can 
be used to solving mixing problems. 

The highlights of the course are as follows -
