About this course

The course gives an introduction to heat and flow simulation. The main program used in the course will be flow simulation from SolidWorks software. The course include lessons and exercises with tutorials on model preparation and creation of a flow simulation project. Key elements are: Meshing and thin wall optimization, electric cooling, transient heat transfer, two and three dimensional flow, conjugate heat transfer, rotating reference frames, cavitation, and load transfer from fluid analysis into stress analysis (Finite element analysis).

Learning outcome

Having finished the course, the student shall be able to utilize modern computer simulation tools to simulate and predict heat and flow transfer.
