The effective use of Autodesk Simulation CFD for Turbomachinery applications requires fundamental knowledge of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and the software simulation use. Proficiency in these areas will ultimately help to improve both the design process and product performance. In this class, the fundamentals of the CFD process and its impact on Turbomachinery designs will be introduced to establish the initial foundation of simulation skills. A practical exercise of a simple centrifugal pump will then be used to put these skills into actual practice. The progression of a typical CFD simulation starts from the CAD model, the meshed model, to solving and convergence, and finally results visualization. During this workflow, best practices and pitfalls of CFD in Turbomachinery modeling will be discussed. Finally, the powerful post-processing tools of Autodesk CFD will be exposed to interpret Turbomachinery results and make decisions for modifying the design.
