Overview

You will be introduced to the fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) that are used to solve complex fluid dynamics problems (weather prediction, aircraft flight, turbomachinery) by researchers, scientists and engineers around the world. The programme starts from first principles and you will rapidly develop their first CFD solution using the Excel sheets and Python source code provided.

Note: This self-paced e-learning course is accessible by all Public Service Officers via this link

Key Takeaways

By the end of the programme, you will learn:

  • the fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) that are used by engineers, scientists and researchers
  • the importance of central differencing, upwind differencing and Peclet number
