In this course, we explore the theory, numerical methods, and modeling techniques used to analyze fluid flow problems. We'll present the types of boundary conditions and analysis methods used for both steady and unsteady flow. Computational Fluid Dynamics, or CFD, has emerged as a great tool and resource to help understand complicated fluid flow problems internal and external to complex parts and assemblies.

After completing this course, you'll be able to:

  • Describe the basics of fluid flow.
  • Recognize the computation methods used to calculate fluid flow.
  • Prepare the model for analysis.
  • Execute steady and unsteady flow simulations.
