The purpose of this course is to teach the techniques needed to conduct accurate and efficient single-phase heat transfer analyses using computational fluid dynamics.
The course is structured as a combination of lectures, demonstrations and workshops (tutorials). We begin with an review of heat transfer fundamentals. The basic heat transfer modes of conduction, convection and radiation are then discussed in detail, and recommended meshing and analysis best practices are illustrated through demonstrations performed by the instructor, and workshop problems solved by the students.
The demonstrations and workshops will use SIEMENS's CFD technology, but the general practices discussed will apply to heat transfer analyses using any CFD code.
This course is intended for any engineer involved in CFD modeling of heat transfer problems. Basic familiarity with STAR-CCM+ is recommended
