Autodesk CFD software from Autodesk, Inc., provides computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and thermal simulation tools to help you make great products. Using Autodesk CFD software, you can predict product performance, optimize designs, and validate product behavior before manufacturing. The question then arises: "Where do I start?" Attend this class and you will learn the basics of Autodesk CFD software and how it can improve your design process.
- Learn how to import CAD models to CFD
- Learn how to set up a flow and thermal analysis
- Learn how to run a local analysis
- Learn how to make design changes based on results and how to compare design scenarios
