Online Training Program on Fundamentals & Modelling of CFD by SVNIT Surat [Dec 21-25]: Register by Dec 18


The Department of Mechanical Engineering, Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) Surat is organizing a One Week Online Short term Training Program on Fundamentals & Modelling of CFD-Part I from December 21 to 25, 2020.
Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) was established in 1961 as one of the Regional Engineering Colleges for imparting technical education. In exercise of the powers conferred by section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act, 1956, the Central Government on the advice of the University Grants Commission, has declared the Sardar Vallabhbhai Regional College of Engineering & Technology (SVREC), Surat to Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT), Surat with the status of “Deemed University” with effect from 4th December 2002. The Institute has been granted the status of ‘Institute of National Importance’ w.e.f. 15th August 2007.

Course Objectives

The scopes of modeling and simulation have tremendously been increased in recent years. With the faster growth of high-performance computer, it has been possible to solve complex problems of fluid flow and heat transfer. The modeling techniques are also significantly improved because of the ever-increasing computing power. Computational fluid dynamics modeling has now become extremely useful in the design of many thermal systems.
The objective of the course is to emphasize the participants with the basic need for modeling for heat transfer problems. Basic concepts of various computational methods which include the traditional as well emerging methods would be presented. The course also aims at giving the participants exposure to various complex topics of fluid flow and heat transfer.

Course Content
  1. Basic governing equations of fluid flow and heat transfer.
  2. Discretization of governing equations for pure conduction, conduction, convection, and transient heat transfer
  3. 0-D, 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D FDM/ FVM/ FEM fundamentals
  4. Properties of numerical methods
  5. Overview of turbulence models.
  6. SIMPLE algorithm for pressure-velocity coupling
  7. Introduction to meshing tool (ICEM) and finite volume-based solver ANSYS FLUENT.
  8. Structured and unstructured meshing
  9. Application of CFD to important problems of mechanical and aerospace engineering
  10. Code Development
