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.

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: 6 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)
  • Access to course: Once you make the payment, your login ID and password will be sent automatically via email.

More Information

  • Learn Essential Mathematics required to understand governing equations of fluid flow
  • Learn and derive governing equations of fluid motion
  • Learn discretization methods like FDM, FVM and coding them using MATLAB/Octave
  • Introduction to CFD software like ANSYS Fluent, CFX, OpenFOAM, Spaceclaim etc.
  • Build confidence by learning CFD from both fundamental and practical perspective
  • Engineering students pursuing BTech, Mtech or PhD for their academic projects and to enhance their skills
  • Any fluid dynamics/aerodynamics enthusiasts
  • 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

"Needed and helpful course "

Modules were crafted brilliantly to meet the requirements for the CFD folks, which is truly inspiring for the expedition !! Actually loved the inclusion of animations for Essential mathematics part , derivations of governing equations made much easier to understand and remember & coding in MATLAB /OCTAVE to "know how" about the CFD philosophy .

Very good course to understand what is happening behind the software and understanding the equation

I really liked the way the professor gave a brief explanation in comparison with the industrial and real time natural examples. Its like a podcast anyone can listen to it again and again to understand the equations and build a strong background. Any one wants to learn MATLAB/OCTAVE for CFD this course is highly recommended.This is not only for beginners but its for all level of CFD professionals.

Good for revising the basic concepts

Unless you complete the tutorial at the end of each lesson, you will not be given access to the next one. Hence it forces you to do the assignment and not just binge-watch all the tutorials. However, this course alone will not teach you everything you need. You must do your part in learning from a standard textbook along with these tutorials.

Structured course on CFD - Flowthermolab | Computational fluid dynamics

The Course introduces CFD in a very structured way .It enlightened me on how partial differential equations are solved numerically in a computer. This course is recommended for curious people who like to know what goes behind the simulation tool.
