The course mainly contains video lessons based on fundamental theory and software skills. Apart from video
lessons, the course also contains other components like software demos, assignments, quizzes, and project.
The course is delivered based on a concept of ‘learning lessons accompanied with live mentoring sessions’.
Initial section of the course contain fundamental lessons, middle part is based on mesh generation skills
using ANSYSICEM CFD and end part of the course is based on CFD simulation using ANSYS FLUENT which is
further divided into 4 sub-parts, simulation of basic fluid flow, simulation of heat transfer involved
fluids, simulation of multiphase fluids and finally simulation of turbo machinery applications. Based on
the content of the video lessons and accompanied assignments, projects you can expect to complete the
course in 12 weeks.
The course has three stages – learning, evaluating, and certification. The learning section contains
animated presentation based video lessons. The duration of each lesson varies from few minutes for some
lessons to 40 minutes for some lessons. The learning section also contains short software demos whose
duration is usually very small and detailed video tutorials which are not like unreal, bookish type
tutorials whereas they are actually real world industry level CFD Simulations. Some of them are actually
optimization studies as well.
The second stage of the course is to evaluate the participant. We have designed tests and quiz at apt
intervals which further develop his/her interest in the course.
Lastly, our course contains a complete process of certification, where in the participant is provided with
various choices of assignments to work on. The assignments are basically CFD problems, for which the
participant is expected to prepare a correct CFD approach, execute the simulation, and submit a report of
the simulation. After evaluating the report, the participant is provided with the LearnCAx certification.
