This two-day course offers an introduction to CONVERGE 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. You will practice preparing the surface and setting 
up the case for several types of IC engines (including diesel, PFI spark-
ignited, and multi-fuel premixed).

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

Set up solver parameters and data files
Set up inlaid meshes, including appropriate boundary and initial 
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
Set up wall heat transfer modeling in CONVERGE and output heat 
transfer quantities for thermal analysis
Set up additional modeling options such as turbulence and sources
Run CONVERGE and monitor your simulation
Post-process results in CONVERGE Studio
Surface Preparation with CONVERGE Studio for IC Engines

This course is intended for all new users interested in using CONVERGE 
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.
