FDP - Computational Fluid Dynamics | 6 - 11 Jun, 2016

One-Week Faculty Development Program (FDP)
On
Computational Fluid Dynamics
School of Mechanical Engineering
SASTRA University
Thanjavur 613401

Preamble
With the advent of high speed computing, computational fluid dynamics has become an integral part of engineering design, simulation, and performance analysis. It is highly desirable that graduating engineers are exposed to computational fluid dynamics as part of their engineering curriculum. With this objective, a one-week Faculty Development Program (FDP) on computational fluid dynamics is envisaged for mechanical and chemical engineering faculty of engineering colleges at School of Mechanical Engineering, SASTRA University. The workshop program consists of lectures and hands-on sessions, with emphasis on familiarizing fundamentals of CFD and exposure to commercial CFD tools (ANSYS - Fluent /CFX). This would eventually facilitate the faculty members to offer CFD course in their institutes.Fundamentals of CFD, grid generation, meshing, building computational model on commercial CFD tool (ANSYS - Fluent /CFX) and simulating the model for standard test cases will be focussed in the workshop.

Eligibility

  • Faculty, Post-graduate (M. Tech / M. E.) and Research Scholars from Chemical and Mechanical Engineering departments of AICTE / UGC approved institutes/ affiliated colleges/deemed universities
