In this course, we will teach you the necessary skills to carry out numerical flow calculations with Ansys Fluent. Based on practical examples of internal and external fluid dynamics with heat transfer, you will learn the work steps of a CFD simulation, starting with geometry modeling through to the systematic evaluation, assessment and quality assurance of results. The focus of the training is practical exercises with the software Ansys Fluent. The necessary background knowledge is also provided alongside these exercises.

Do you work in development, calculation or research and would like to implement circulating-flow or through-flow components in your products? In this seminar, we will show you how you can use CFD simulation to better understand the fluid dynamics in your products and apply this understanding to develop high-quality products while saving time and money.

In this course, we will provide you with best practice procedures to carry out fluid dynamics calculations which you can practically apply in exercises. You will thus learn all key work steps from the model selection, geometry generation and calculation through to evaluation and quality assurance of results. After the training, you will be able to use your documents and completed example exercises to independently carry out CFD calculations, evaluate results and apply the knowledge gained to your development and research work.

A selection of our lecturers, who provide you with the latest simulation knowledge and its implementation in practice

Do you have questions on the training or the eLearning?

When will I receive the final confirmation for my training booking?

Straight after you sign up, an automatic confirmation of receipt will be sent to the email addresses you provided. Once you have successfully verified the data you provided, you will receive your personalized sign-up confirmation, containing further information on course fees, the billing address, etc., by email within two to three working days.  

As soon as the minimum number of attendees has been reached, you will receive a final training confirmation containing further information on how to get to the venue. We recommend that you wait until you have received this final confirmation before booking your travel and accommodation.

If the minimum number of attendees is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel the training seven days before it is due to start at the latest. We are happy to help you change your booking to an alternative date. Please note that we accept no liability for hotel or travel bookings that attendees have already made.

When is the sign-up deadline for a training?

Training places will generally be allocated based on the order in which attendees sign up. For this reason, we always recommend booking for your desired date as early as possible.

As long as a coures still has free places, it can be booked.

At what time do the training courses begin and end?

Usually the training courses start at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm of the respective local time. The actual course times will be stated in the booking confirmation. Please note that, depending on the training host, there may be a possible time shift between your and the provider's local time. Therefore all local times are provided with the valid time shift to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). 

Can I test the eLearning offer without obligation?

To get a clear impression of our online learning format, we offer you a trial allowing you access to the starting module of an eLearning course of your choice. No costs, no cancellation period or anything similar. Moreover, with this free test access you can check all the technical requirements for a smooth learning process. You can easily request the free module from any eLearning course.

How much time should I allow for an eLearning course?

Each online course day comprises four eLearning modules. You should ideally allow 90 to 120 minutes of uninterrupted learning time for each module. This will allow you to acquire the knowledge provided by a module and to consolidate it through quiz questions and Ansys exercises. By dividing each module into micro learning units, you can also make good use of smaller time windows, such as on your commute.

For how long can I access the learning content?

Prerequisite for the use of the eLearning courses is the use of a personal access to the CADFEM learning platform

Upon purchase, the duration of use of your eLearning course is 12 months. After expiration of the usage period you have access to your completed eLearning course for another 12 months.

As a user of a learning subscription plan, the duration of use of your flat rate is 12 months. After this period of use has expired, you will have access to your completed eLearning course for a further 12 months.

CADFEM trained us in the use of SpaceClaim and Fluent. The theory-practice-alternation was well balanced, our learning curve was quick and intuitive. The technical mastery and pedagogy are remarkable. After the training, we put in place regular meetings to discuss about our challenges and success. We recommend the CADFEM team without reservation!
