Course Overview


Converge CFD

CONVERGE is a general purpose CFD package that is extremely well suited for reacting and non-reacting flow applications. Converge has been widely adopted in the automotive Industry as the standard for IC Engine simulations. You can visit  for more information.

With CONVERGE CFD, you can work on a variety of applications including:

Spark ignited engine simulation
Diesel Engine simulation
Gas turbine Simulation
After treatment device simulation


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.


1 . Steady and Transient flow over a throttle body

The objective here is to simulate flow past a throttle body under steady state and transient conditions. Your task is to study the effect of the valve dynamics on key flow quantities.

    2 . Diesel engine characterization

    In this project, you will run closed cycle simulations of the CAT3410 engine using two different piston bowls. You will be looking at the effect of piston bowl shape on the final solution.

    3 . Port fuel injection 

    • Clean up complex CAD model using CONVERGE STUDIO
    • Assign proper boundary and initial conditions
    • Setup appropriate physical models (spray, turbulence, combustion and emissions)
    • Running simulations in parallel
    • Runtime results visualization
    • Post processing results
    • Cerating cut views, iso-surfaces, images and animations

    You will also focus on analyzing the data obtained from your simulation using line plots. You can find an example below.

    Last but not least, there is a reason why CFD is called colorful fluid dynamics. Here are some visualizations that beautifully convey the complexities of the various physical phenomena that you can expect in an I.C Engine.

    What will you learn each week?

    CONVERGE Studio module

    In this module you will learn how to setup a CFD simulation using CONVERGE CFD. We will provide step by step instructions on the following:

    • CAD import and cleanup
    • Decomposing the model into boundaries and volumetric regions
    • Inputting valve timing
    • Choosing turbulence and combustion models
    • Running the case in parallel environment
    • Post processing

    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

    Region intialization and valve motion setup

    In this module, you will learn the following concepts:

    • Initializing pressure, temperature and species concentration in the Intake, Exhaust and Fire deck regions
    • Disconnect triangles
    • Valve timing and the concept of minimum lift
    • Valve profile input

    Turbulence modelling

    In this module, you will learn how turbulence is modelled and simulated in a state of the art CFD solver. You will learn about the different classes of turbulence model and understand their merits and demerits.

    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.
