This course is of interest to professionals with some knowledge of fluid mechanics and is for analyzing fluid flow problems using COMSOL Multiphysics. Covering both theory and practical applications, this class emphasizes how to use COMSOL Multiphysics more efficiently for CFD simulations. A comprehensive overview of the CFD Module will be given in addition to hands-on exercises for different types of fluid mechanics problems. The course covers the problem setup, the choice of the right boundary conditions, the post-processing options and the result visualization tools. Participants will also learn how to prepare their geometry or CAD file for CFD analysis and how to build a mesh that is well-suited to fluid flow simulations.
