CONVERGE is an innovative multi-purpose CFD software that can provide insight into internal combustion engines, compressors, fans, blowers, pumps, fuel injectors and sprays, aftertreatment systems, gas turbines, biomedical devices, oil and gas applications, and many other systems. This two-day course offers a hands-on introduction to CONVERGE. You will learn about the CONVERGE solver and modeling options while working through a wide variety of example cases. Because CONVERGE has a completely automated meshing process, you do not need to spend any time preparing the volume mesh, which simplifies the case setup process.
During this course, you will have plenty of time for hands-on practice supervised by experienced CONVERGE support engineers. You will practice preparing the surface geometry, setting up input parameters, running the simulation, and post-processing results for a variety of cases.
Upon the completion of this course, you will know how to:
Begin a new project in CONVERGE Studio
Import a surface geometry from a CAD program
Coarsen the surface triangulation to reduce the computational cost
Manually repair surface defects
Prepare moving boundaries for motion
Set up inlaid meshes, including appropriate boundary and initial conditions
Set up solver parameters and data files
Set up appropriate boundary and initial conditions
Set up wall heat transfer modeling and output heat transfer quantities for thermal analysis
Set up additional modeling options, including for turbulence, combustion, and sources
Control grid settings throughout the computational domain
Run CONVERGE and monitor your simulation
Post-process results in CONVERGE Studio
WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS COURSE
This course is intended for new users to CONVERGE and CONVERGE Studio. This course can also be used as a refresher for experienced or occasional users of previous versions of CONVERGE and CONVERGE Studio.
