Included Courses

1. Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics using MATLAB and OpenFOAM

This is a 12 week course. You will learn how to write your own solvers in MATLAB. Once you have completed MATLAB, we will shift your focus to OpenFOAM. Here, you will learn the basics of FVM and the different numerical schemes and procedures that have been implemented in it. You will setup validation cases.

2. Advanced Aerodynamic Simulation

In this course, you will learn Aerodynamics by setting up three dimensional Computational Fluid Dynamics simulation. You will understand how to compute engineering quantities from your CFD Simulations.

Program Syllabus

Importance of Computational Fluid Dynamics

In this module, you will understand what CFD is and its uses. After your first class, you will be able to understand

  • Governing equations of fluid motion
  • Numerical Discretization
  • The term "fluid solver"
  • Boundary conditions
  • Post processing

Once we do this, we will have a rigorous approach to learn MATLAB/Octave.

Essential Mathematics

In this course, you will be writing solvers and getting your hands dirty with different numerical methods. Before we do this, it is very important to understand essential mathematical concepts that you will encounter.

  • Series expansion and Taylor's table
  • Understanding the type of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) and their characteristics
  • How Elliptic, Hyperbolic and Parabolic PDEs relate to the physics of fluid
  • Powering through Divergence, Curl and Gradient
  • Types of linear systems
  • Different ways to solve matrices
  • Computing integral quantities in arbitrary volumes

Understanding the Physics of Fluids

The most important aspect of CFD is the physics of fluids. Before plunging into CFD, we will analyze flows mathematically and computationally. This is where you develop your technical foundation. Here are some topics that we would cover:

  • Navier and Stokes Equation
  • Understanding the Eulers equation
  • Analyzing fluid systems with the Reynolds Transport Theorem

Scratching the surface of CFD by Analyzing Consistency and Stability of Numerical Schemes

When we reach this point in the lecture, you are will have the essential knowledge in Math, Programming and Fluid Physics to start CFD. We will teach you Von-Neumann Stability analysis along with a practical example.

    Computational Fluid Dynamics using OpenFOAM

    OpenFOAM is an open-source toolbox with in-built Numerical Solver and pre/post processors for solving CFD Problems. In this module, you will:

    • Learn how OpenFOAM solver is structured
    • Learn how to pick a solver
    • Create meshes using blockMesh and SnappyHexMesh
      Preparing the surface for external flow simulation

      In this module you will learn how to import your CAD designs into CONVERGE studio for performing external flow analysis.

      • CAD import and cleanup
      • Splitting the model into boundaries
      • Creating Virtual Wind Tunnel

      Surface preparation

      In this module, we will cover surface preparation in full detail. Here you will learn the following:

      • Setting up the piston motion profile
      • Boundary flagging
      • Setting up the intake and exhaust valves

      Extracting aerodynamic quantities from Simulation

      In this module, you will learn the following concepts:

      • How to choose the right turbulence model?
        • K-Epsilon Vs K-Omega SST
      • Understanding Y+
      • Turbulent and Boundary layer theory
      • Usefulness of viscosity ratio

      Prandtyl-Meyer Shock capture problem

      You will simulate shock flow problems and learn how Adaptive Mesh Refinement can be used to capture the shock location accurately.

        Physics modelling

        W.r.t aerodynamics, a student needs to familiarize themselves with how different physics are captured by mathematical models. Without this understanding, the engineer will not be capable of correctly setting up an external flow simulation. We will cover the following physical modules:

        • Turbulence modelling
        • Conjugate Heat Transfer
        • Combustion modelling
        • Spray modelling

        Combustion modelling

        In this module, you will learn how the SAGE detailed chemical kinetics solver works. In addition to this, you will learn how to use the Shell CTC combustion model.

        Emissions modelling

        To design efficient engine, one needs to have a firm grasp of emissions modelling. You will learn about the Hiroyasu Soot Model and the Zeldovich Nox model and apply them in engine simulations.
