CFD: An Executive Overview
Course date: Please enquire
Update: This course will be running in October 2013, please use the Alert Me button below to receive notifications on when booking is available.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is the art of simulating a flow of fluid or gas in a given geometry. It is often used to assess the performance of engineering devices, to explore in a cost-effective manner several competing designs, or to provide understanding of flow processes within or around a given configuration.
This is a one day CFD course tailored for industrial delegates wishing to obtain an executive overview of the CFD capabilities, best practices and limitations. It covers high level elements of grid generation, turbulence modelling, high performance computing and best practise case studies.
Cranfield University is located at the very heart of the UK – within the innovation triangle between London and the cities of Oxford and Cambridge.
Our central location provides easy access from the M1, excellent main line rail service as well as proximity to key international airports. Set in rolling countryside, Cranfield offers a rich, rural landscape complemented by thriving towns and picturesque villages.

Please note that international delegates who require a letter of invitation from Cranfield University to support visa applications will be provided this once your booking has been confirmed.
On completion of this course you will have an appreciation of the overall CFD design process including issues such as CAD/CFD integration; the role of grid generation; the choices available for alternative numerical methods; what turbulent flows are and why they are of such concern; and what is necessary in order to achieve and demonstrate accurate CFD simulations. The course will additionally provide useful information regarding questions to be considered when selecting CFD packages from alternative commercial vendors.
The course features lectures on:
- Introduction to CFD
- Best Practice for CFD Simulations
- Resource Requirements for CFD Analyses
- Commercial Grid Generation and CFD Packages
- Future Directions.
Who Should Attend?
The content is targeted for:
- management level staff who need a concise but not necessarily highly technical introduction to the technology.
- engineering managers who are considering incorporating CFD analyses into their design methodology and would like to appreciate what this entails and what necessary training/software is required.
- sales and marketing personnel who need to have an understanding of what CFD is, how it can be used and what are the potential benefits.
This is a one-day course, the next date will be running in October 2013. Please use the Alert Me button on this page to receive updates on when booking is open. All delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course.
