ERCOFTAC Best Practice for Eng CFD, 22-23 October 2015, GE, Munich, Germany
Best Practice For Engineering CFD
GE Munich, Germany, 22-23 October 2015

Course Coordinator: Prof. Charles Hirsch

President, Numeca Int., Belgium

Organizer and Registration: Dr Richard Seoud



This course is targeted at relatively new and improving CFD analysts in engineering industries and consultancies.

It provides the knowledge to effect a step-change in the accuracy and reliability of CFD practices across a range of engineering applications relevant to the power generation, aerospace, automotive, built environment and turbomachinery sectors ? amongst others. 


This course is directly relevant to engineering applications of CFD for single-phase, compressible and incompressible, steady and unsteady, turbulent flows, with and without heat transfer. Much of the content will also be relevant to even more complex engineering applications.

The main focus will be on RANS applications, but an introduction to the special considerations required by LES and hybrid methods is also given.

The course provides the means for CFD analysts to significantly enhance their use of commercial and open-source CFD software for engineering applications. In particular, it provides guidance on best practices and highlights common pitfalls to be avoided.
