Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a tool being extensively used in research as well as in the industry for solving complex fluid flow and heat transfer problems. Simultaneous development of high performance computing (HPC) technology, numerical algorithms, physical and chemical models of flow physics, etc. are responsible for the big impact of CFD in solving both basic and applied scientific and engineering problems.In recent past, CFD has developed into a rich and diverse subject and has emerged as a major component of applied and basic fluid dynamic research along with theoretical and experimental studies.The use of CFD based simulation ranges from the analysis of the movement of microorganisms to the weather prediction. The leading manufactures, like automotive, aerospace, naval sectors frequently use this technique for the building of prototype and product development.The importance of CFD is continuously growing with time with the increasing capabilities of CFD and its application.

  • Will I earn a certificate for this course?

    All the participants who attends the STTP will receive a 'Participation Certificate' signed by the Programme coordinator.

  • Will I get anything more than a participation certificate?

    The participants, who wish to appear for a test on the final day of STTP, which is especially designed to evaluate the proficiency in CFD; they will be provided with a 'Proficiency Certificate' mentioning their marks/grades.

  • What resources will I need for this STTP?

    Your curiosity! The rest will be provided by the organizers.

  • Do I need a scientific background?

    The STTP consists of 5 days. The first day focus on the 'fundamentals', however always with clear links to the various applications of CFD. The next three days focus on the core CFD businesses with hands on training/lab. sessions. We built the STTP in this way because the knowledge of the fundamentals is important to fully understand the core businesses and applications. In terms of university/academic education, both fundamentals and applications are essential components of a course and therefore also the tutorials will focus on these two components. Any student, engineer, who is having basic knowledge of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer and elementary course on computational/numerical methods can participate in the STTP and learn a lot from it.
