Basics of heat and fluid flow modeling – workshop for non-CFD professionals
The course introduces the basics of the numerical heat and fluid flow modelling to engineers who are new to this field or CFD simulations are not their main occupation. The workshop consists of the theoretical (physics+numerical models), review and practical part with hands-on computer exercises. In contrast to the standard CFD-software vendor workshops, we focus on the general idea of flow modelling rather than the operation of the specific software.
