|CFD for Turbomachinery Design Course|
|Date:||October 12, 2004 - October 14, 2004|
|Location:||217 Billings Farm Rd., White River Jct., Vermont, United States|
|Type of Event:||Course, International|
On day one, CFD fundamentals will be reviewed along with critical concepts that must be understood when running CFD on a turbomachinery problem. Some recent trends on CFD use will also be presented.
The focus of day two is on the integration of CFD into the design and development process. The instructor’s experience of successes and failures with CFD are presented. It is important for engineers to understand where CFD can really help and where it should not be relied upon without confirmatory studies. In some cases CFD may be a cost-effective alternative to experimental testing, but as in design, it must be used with caution. The interaction between CFD analysis and laboratory studies is considered in depth.
On day three, the focus will shift to advanced topics in CFD. Examples will be presented showing how CFD can solve very complex problems such as acoustics, multiphase flow including wet steam and cavitation, real fluid properties, turbulence, and meshing of complex geometry.
