Workshop : CFD at NIT-Warangal, India

LearnCAx, conducted workshops on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) at National Institute of Technology-Warangal (NIT-W). The workshop was part of the annual technical festival event Technozion'12 being organized by NIT-W for the past 6 years. The theme for this year was "Gandhian Engineering" with motto "more from less for more"

The objective of the workshop was to create awareness among engineering students about one of the most challenging and growing field of CFD, its fundamentals, usage, wide industrial applications and career opportunities. It also introduced most widely used and popular CFD tool ANSYS FLUENT and ANSYS ICEM-CFD provided by ANSYS Inc. With vast capabilities available in these tools one can solve almost any engineering problem involving physics of fluid and heat transfer.

The workshop received an overwhelming response by participants from diverse engineering background (Mechanical, Chemical, Aeronautical, Automobile) from both undergraduate & postgraduate students that made spot registrations. The topics of the workshop were as follows :

  1. Introduction to CFD
  2. Review of CFD Equations
  3. CFD Flow Process
  4. Introduction to ANSYS ICEM-CFD
  5. Introduction to ANSYS FLUENT
  6. Hands on for ICEM CFD & FLUENT
  7. Question Answer Session

Through the workshop the students were made acquainted with the basics of CFD, its applications in different domains, the different existing commercial softwares like Ansys ICEM CFD, Ansys FLUENT and career opportunities in the same. The range of audience included very enthusiastic members right from 2nd year of engineering to Ph.D students. The key speakers were experts like Mr. Praful Dandgawal, Mr. Swapnil Dindorkar, Chief Mentor - LearnCAx and our veteran Director Mr. Vijay Mali.

LearnCAx has always been working into creating awareness and imparting CAx technologies education by offering a number of courses from basic to advanced levels in the domain of CAD & CFD. Also LearnCAx regularly conducts FREE seminars, webinars and workshops to provide guidance to budding engineers/ researchers aspiring to make a head start in the domain of CAx technologies.
