This class will include a competition to set up a model to achieve the best accuracy. It will begin with a discussion and hands-on session involving meshing—basic rules of meshing, mesh sensitivity, and mesh controls; solver settings—Advection Schemes, Nodal aspect ratio, Mach number, and Y+; convergence controls and interpretation; momentum conservation; and energy balance. Finally we will have a competition to apply what was discussed to produce an accurate simulation. Geometry and a description of the test environment will be provided, along with the results required. It is assumed that the user will have a good understanding of the software and can already set up his or her own models to a good level.
