Course Description

This course is designed for a complete beginner for learning computational fluid dynamics from a practical perspective. We will start from the essential mathematics to derive and understand the governing equations of fluid flow along with assignments that will familiarize you with programming. In the next step, you will learn to discretize the partial differential equations and solve them by writing codes. You will also learn topics like turbulence/turbulence models and also will be introduced to CFD software like ANSYS Fluent, OpenFOAM, etc.

Course Fee: $69 (INR 5700) Including Tax

Key information:

  • Course Instructor:  Dr. Sandeep Mouvanal [MS, PhD from IIT Madras] [ 15 years Industrial Exp. as CFD Engineer]
    Current Position: Senior Researcher, University of Nottingham, UK
  • Course content: 30 Lessons including  quizzes and challenges/assignments 
  • Doubt clearance: Email support. 
  • Discussion forum: A discussion forum to discuss any topics with fellow students and the instructor
  • Total access period: 12 Months from the day of enrolling 
  • Computer requirement: Minimum 4 GB RAM and i3 processor 
  • Software: MATLAB or Octave, Student version of ANSYS (Both are free for students)

  • Professors/Lecturers who want to teach or guide their students in CFD projects
  • CAD or FEA Engineers who want to up-skill and shift their career to CFD
  • CFD Engineers already working in the industry but want to improve their fundamentals
  • Do I get a certificate?
    Yes, when you finish all the lessons and the corresponding quizzes/assignments you will gain the course completion certificate with the date of completion.
  • Do I need a powerful workstation/computer to learn this course?
    No, a normal laptop with 4 or 8GB RAM and a decent processor (i3) is good enough for this course.
  • What if I don’t understand some portion or need to clarify some doubts?
    We will support you through emails and zoom meetings/discussion session to clear all doubts and questions
  • Should I know CFD software to learn this course? 
    No, you will learn it during the course.
  • Is there any prerequisite? 
    The basic knowledge in fluid mechanics is required to learn CFD
  • I am not good at programming, can I still enrol?

    Programming knowledge is not a prerequisite for this course. You will be given guidance to learn MATLAB/Octave from scratch. The assignments in the course will help you

Well defined course for a beginner to understand basics of CFD

The course work is designed is such a way that anyone new to CFD can understand the basics of CFD. After taking this course I find it a bit easy to understand the theory and equation part form any standard CFD textbooks. Overall, it is one of the best courses to get into CFD.

Fantastic course for an introduction to CFD

One of the best courses to introduce oneself to CFD. By far the best explanations of the SIMPLE algorithm that I have come by

Very good course

The course is really a good kickstart for CFD learning. It will be good when they include physical meaning of the equation wherever it is coming.

Brilliant discussions

Sandeep Sir and team has crafted course so well that a beginner can also master the subject. I was making a comeback into the field 8 years after graduating and I did not feel the need to refer any other course material. I would stress on reading the recommended books along with the course they help you understand the algorithms and are beneficial during programming.
