Top 5% of the class will get a merit certificate. Course completion certificate will be provided to all students who complete the course. You will receive both e-verified and hard copy of your certificates
Sarangarajan Vijayraghavan Iyengar
Sarang has over 7+ years experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Combustion. His core area of expertise includes:
IC Engine CFD and Combustion
External aerodynamics and internal flow simulations
Numerical analysis and Programming
Flow over a FSAE car
In this project, you have the opportunity to perform as many simulations you want to understand the aero-dynamics of a FSAE car. We encourage students to work on open ended problems and you can choose to solve as many problem as you want. Here are a few different project ideas that you can work on.
NOTE: Each one of the following topics is a project and requires fair amount of work. You can work on more than one topic at a time, if you are hard working and motivated.
Lift and Drag predictions for different Yaw angles
Grid dependence test
Effect of turbulence model on flow separation
Flow past a Generic Conventional Model Truck
GCM truck is a model truck that was conceptualized, built and tested by NASA for building robust Computational tools.
In this course, you have the option to perform external aero analysis on this truck.
It is possible to publish a conference paper based on the work that you do in this project.
What will you learn each week
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
In this module, we will cover surface preparation in full detail. Here you will learn the following.
Setting up the piston motion profile
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
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.
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
Conjugate Heat Transfer
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
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
