CFD-ACE+ Introduction for Fluid Dynamics and Multiphysics


This course presents the CFD-ACE Graphical User Interface and the Solver, as well as the pre-processor CFD-GEOM, the post-processor CFD-VIEW, and the simulation manager SimManager. Other topics such as CFD-VisCART (adaptive Cartesian mesh generation system), Parallel Processing, Scripting, User Subroutines, etc. are introduced based on class interest.


Engineers and physicists wishing to use computational fluid dynamics for their applications


Learn the basic features and operation of the CFD-ACE+ suite of tools, the most advanced CFD and Multiphysics software. Leave the class with your own simulation ready to run!
