Our offer in detail
In this course you will learn all the necessary skills to perform computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations with Ansys Fluent. Particularly valuable are the practical examples of internal and external flows with heat transfer. They form the focus of the course in conjunction with practical exercises. Project-experienced tutors show you the individual work steps of a professional CFD calculation. Starting with the geometry modeling up to the systematic evaluation and assessment of the results. In addition to the exercises, we provide the necessary background knowledge, as it is sometimes addressed in lectures.
This training is offered as a self-paced eLearning course, in which you should invest a total of 2 working day(s) with your own time allocation.

Want to get involved with practical relevance in development, calculation, or research when it comes to flow simulation? Then let CADFEM experts with project experience show you how you can better analyze flow behavior on products with the help of Ansys Fluent and how you can contribute with this understanding to developing high-quality products in a time-saving and cost-effective manner.
After this course, you will be able to apply flow calculations yourself. The “Best Practice” approach gives you the confidence to perform your analyses in a practice-oriented manner. You will learn all essential steps, from model selection and geometry generation to calculation, evaluation, and results. With this knowledge you can classify and evaluate results. These skills are of fundamental importance, especially in development and research work.

Have you successfully completed a course, i.e., all units, exercises and quizzes? Then the final test will be unlocked for you. Once you have successfully completed it, you will receive a certificate from us by e-mail. You can use this for your application, share it or include it in your network profiles - just as you please.
A one-time registration under myAccount is necessary. Then, select your first desired course, put it in the shopping cart and submit the booking. For your first order, you will be asked for a valid certificate of enrollment. For further bookings in the same semester, this will not be necessary anymore. You will receive the access data to the CADFEM learning platform on the same or the following workday.
For practicing you can use the free Ansys Student software. For some of the exercises you will need a license that includes more nodes. Where do you get it? Almost all universities have Ansys licenses that are also available for students. It is best to ask at the computer center of your university.
