Computational Fluid Dynamics using

Ansys CFX


CFX is a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) program, used to simulate fluid flow in a variety of applications. The ANSYS CFX product allows engineers to test systems in a virtual environment. The scalable program has been applied to the simulation of water flowing past ship hulls, gas turbine engines (including the compressors, combustion chamber, turbines and afterburners), aircraft aerodynamics, pumps, fans, HVAC systems, mixing vessels, hydro-cyclones and more.

ANSYS CFX software has its roots in the program CFX-4, formerly Flow3D in the United Kingdom and originally developed in-house for use by the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), and TASC flow which was developed by Advanced Scientific Computing (ASC), of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Combined with the years of experience and HPC (High performance Computing) capabilities along with the modern modeling techniques the ANSYS CFX has become THE tool for the modern day engineers.

This course offers multiples workshops like Flow over a Airfoil, Cooling of electronic equipment along with an expert trainer with a vast experience of the relevant field for the assistance of the trainees thus making the course and ideal learning experience.
