CRA302 - Moving Mesh with scFLOW

The objective of this course is to teach attendees how to use moving elements to solve rigid body motion using scFLOW. The training covers different ways to handle moving elements (including discontinuous mesh approach, overset mesh approach, and deforming mesh approach). The course includes hands-on exercises, with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to analyze a moving mesh case using each of the above methods.

Attendees will gain knowledge of:

  • Strategies for CFD modeling of moving objects
  • Basic theory of moving elements in CFD
  • Preparation of model geometry for moving mesh calculations
  • Mesh generation for moving elements
  • Finding information and/or acquiring necessary help

Length: 3 Days
Cost: $1,425

Familiarity with the basic workflow of scFLOW. Course CRA301 is recommended.
