Students can expect to learn: 
*the motivation behind this type of analysis 
  -common to all CFD analysis: to reduce cost, turnaround 
time, in packing of underhood cooling system and other 
  -prototype building is extremely expensive 
*preprocessing challenges typical for these applications 
and ways of addressing them 
*models available in FLUENT for performing 
underhood/underbody analyses on either component or system 
levels; specifically, 
  -cooling package performance such as coolant inlet 
temperatures for a given engine power; air flow rate; 
total heat rejection for a given coolant inlet temperature 
front end simulations (from grilles to engine) including 
component temperatures 
  -complete underhood simulations 
  -complete underbody simulations 

Students will have hands-on workstation time to complete 
tutorials with Fluent training experts standing by for
