Serving as an introduction to our Enterprise-Wide software solution, the aim of the class is to equip the attendee with a firm understanding of the basic use of STAR-CCM+ for conducting multi-physics simulations.

With the advent of “upfront” simulation, CFD has become accessible to a broad spectrum of engineers working in a wide range of industries and disciplines, many of whom have little formal fluid mechanics training. Understanding the fundamental principles that underlie commercial CFD solvers can help the user to effectively harness the power of modern CFD and innovate successful processes within their organization. As an added bonus, the bargaining power is placed back with the CFD buyer once they are equipped with the correct evaluation skills and information about current ‘hot topics’ and advances. Siemens is pleased to announce a brand-new one day training course, that is aimed at introducing new users, or non-users who encounter CFD, to these fundamentals. Industry development and the impact of external factors, such as hardware advances, will also be discussed.


Attendance to this course will help users to identify the type of problems to which CFD is suited, to understand some of the limitations of CFD technology, and help them to avoid common pitfalls encountered by the inexperienced user.

Open to new users of STAR-CD, STAR-CCM+, the STAR-CAD Series, or any other commercial CFD code. The course is also ideal for CAE managers or experimentalists wishing to gain an insight in to the computational world. Introduction to CFD will provide the best possible general introduction to industrial CFD simulation.
