Introduction to CFD Principles
By attending this one-day course, delegates will gain a solid foundation for the practical elements of computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Date: October 13, 2014
Location: Wilde Analysis Ltd, Brindley Lodge, Adcroft Street, Stockport, Cheshire, United Kingdom

Organizer: Wilde Analysis Ltd
Deadlines: October 10, 2014 (registration)
Type of Event: Workshop, International

This course has been designed for delegates with no 
previous CFD experience; it is useful for designers moving 
into the field of computational fluid dynamics. 

Understanding the basics will help you get the most out of 
CAD based CFD programs as well as dedicated and open source 

It is assumed that: 

- The user does not have any previous experience and is 
predominantly from a design engineering background. 
- The user has enough engineering expertise to evaluate 
analysis results and determine if they are reasonable. 

The course is also useful to engineers who need to write 
specifications for fluid dynamics projects and will help 
interpret and check the results at the conclusion of these
