1. What are the prerequisites of this course?
Course has no pre-requisites but we assume that you have fundamental knowledge of Fluid mechanics and Mathematics.
This course is designed for those CFD Engineers, who often face problems in handling the mesh with huge cell count with complexity and also for those who are aspiring for CFD preprocessing knowledge.
2. When I can start the course and how much time is needed to complete the course?
The course is available all the time. Time necessary to start the course is what you need to create a LearnCAx login :). Considering difficulty level, understanding capacity and necessary extra reading, on average, we expect this course to be finished in 4 weeks.
3. What are the capabilities of TGrid software?
TGrid software is a specialized preprocessor used to create unstructured tetrahedral and Hex Core mesh for complex and very large surface mesh. TGrid offers advanced prism layer creation tools including collision detection and sharp corner handling. TGrid is also equipped with an advanced wrapping procedure that produces a high-quality, size function driven connected triangular surface mesh from a large set of unconnected faceted surfaces. TGrid software is robust; its automated algorithms save preprocessing time and generate high-quality mesh for CFD analysis.
4. How difficult is this course?
The course is designed for beginners and we believe that it’s easy for everyone.
5. I have generated grids for different zones using Gambit. How do I merge them together using TGrid later?
TGrid have that capability to read multiple mesh files at a time. For a valid conformal mesh, mesh nodes on the faces at the interface of the two parts have to be matching within a tolerance. Then, you can merge the nodes using TGrid. If the mesh on the faces at the interface is non conformal, then these nodes can be merged using surface mesh operations in TGrid.
6. Can I read a surface mesh of very poor quality into TGrid?
Yes, definitely. TGrid is capable of handling the complex and very large surface mesh of any quality. TGrid contains a number of tools for checking and repairing the boundary mesh to ensure a good quality mesh. A complete mesh can be generated from the boundary mesh automatically or by exercising control of the process.
7. Where am I going to apply my knowledge of TGrid in actual industry?
TGrid software is utilized heavily in large-scale automotive and aerospace applications, in which advanced meshing techniques are required for the computational analysis of fluid flow.
In today’s automotive industry, front-end underhood thermal management (UTM) represents one of the most challenging meshing applications. TGrid software addresses this challenge by capturing best practices and automating the time-consuming manual meshing once required for this class of problems. Flexibility and customization allow TGrid meshing tools to be used in a wide range of applications, from external aerodynamics on Formula One (F1) racing cars to droplet distribution inside human nasal cavities.
8. Will I get the software access along with this course?
No. We don’t provide the software access.
9. I have few queries related to work I am doing. Can I contact you?
