Engineers, graduate students including masters and PhD students study lots of theory on Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), specially on Finite Element Method (FEM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) but when comes to the application of theory in solving real world problems, they either lack the skill and/or don’t know how to approach the problem.
Furthermore, connection between FEM and CFD rarely happens as they are taught separately and for different audience. A real world problem involve all kind of physics and geometry simultaneously, for example, a car undergoes thermal, NVH, CFD, static loads, fatigue, linear and non-linear dynamics with various complex geometry shapes such as thin and thick sheets, thin and thick beam, engine etc. Hence, students, faculty and industry professionals need practical exposure to such multidisciplinary problems. eg. results from FEM is used as boundary conditions for CFD problems. Keeping this in mind, this course has been designed to provide SKILL to the students/faculty/industry engineers on industry standard tools and practices using Applied CFD and Applied FEM.
At the end of the course, the participants are expected learn the theory as well as quality meshing and analysis techniques of various types (1D, 2D, 3D in FEM, CFD problems).
