Workshop Details:

This comprehensive workshop is designed to provide participants with a deep understanding of compressible fluid dynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques for simulating compressible flows. The workshop will delve into the intricacies of flows in different Mach regimes (subsonic, supersonic, hypersonic) and equip participants with the necessary knowledge and hands-on experience to solve complex compressible flow problems using state-of-the-art tools and techniques.

Key information:

Workshop Topics 

  • Introduction to compressible flows, basic fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics. 
  • Governing equations, non-dimensionalization, and characterization of PDEs. 
  • DNS, LES, and RANS, turbulence modelling. 
  • Numerical schemes, meshing: finite difference vs. finite volume, unstructured vs. structured meshes. 
  • Hands-on sessions: CFD codes with Python/MATLAB, simulations with OpenFOAM/Fluent. 
  • Solver development for 1D compressible Euler/Navier-Stokes equations. 
  • Boundary conditions for subsonic and supersonic flows. 
  • Hands-on sessions: solving canonical and industrial compressible flow problems. 
  • Post-processing and analysis. 
Who Should Attend 
This workshop is ideal for engineering professionals, researchers, and students interested in compressible fluid dynamics and CFD. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner, the workshop offers something for everyone. Basic knowledge of fluid mechanics and CFD fundamentals will be beneficial.

Excellent explanation of concepts of compressible flow

As a beginner, I have learned many things from this workshop . Instructors did a great job in explaining the background physics and concepts of compressible flow simulations. It is quite insightful and helpful to know the background theory. The first workshop you have to attend if you want to learn anything about compressible flows.

A comprehensive package of complex CFD of compressible flows in a Nutshell.

Despite the complexity and the depth of specific details connected with CFD of compressible flows, this workshop is sure a comprehensive package in a Nutshell to learn CFD of compressible flows, starting from basics of CFD to consideration of governing equations and solution algorithms specific to compressible flow phenomenon. The expertise of Dr. Rajesh Ranjan sir in the field is remarkable.
