Learn Computational Fluid Dynamics and Design Simulations in a package of three hands-on courses from the comfort of your home.

About this Course
This online course builds understanding and hands-on practice of Computational Methods, Aircraft Engine Design Concepts, and CFD Simulations. It is primarily aimed at third- or fourth- year undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as professionals interested in learning CFD and design. By the end of the course, you will be able to develop a mathematical model of a problem and an algorithm and express it to the computer by writing a MATLAB program and also develop several CFD simulations using standard software like ANSYS-Fluent.

Specific topics that will be covered include

  • CFD-Mathematical and Computational Modeling
  • Designing software CATIA V5 for Aircraft Engine Design
  • CFD software ANSYS FLUENT
  • CFD Algorithms
  • Simultaneously, you will make use of MATLAB to gain a deeper understanding of concepts and methods introduced in the course.


Skills you will gain
The programme is designed for students of architecture, landscape architecture, engineering and related disciplines, who wish to enhance their academic, intellectual and professional skills.

  • MATLAB Programming
  • Mathematical Modelling
  • GRID Generation Techniques
  • CFD algorithms
  • CATIA V5 Designing
  • ANSYS Fluent
  • Post-Processing


What you will learn from this course?

  1. CFD and Design Using MATLAB
    In this module, you will learn governing equations, numerical discretization, grid generation techniques and CFD algorithms. You will write various CFD codes using MATLAB. You will also learn how to develop software for various aerospace applications like airfoil design, wing design, boundary layer analysis, and compressible flow problems using MATLAB. This module is designed assuming that students have no prior knowledge on coding and mathematical modelling.
  2. Aircraft Engine Design Using CATIA V5
    This module introduces you to the CATIA V5 and its core features. You will design all parts of aircraft engine using CATIA V5 and provide rotary dynamics to develop the animation of a turbofan engine.
  3. CFD Simulations Using ANSYS Fluent
    In this module, you will learn to set up the geometry, create the mesh, understand and perform physical set up and analyse the numerical result using post processor. You will use ANSYS Fluent to simulate the real-world engineering problems.
