Detailed Descriptions of the ANSYS CFX Course
DRD Workshop 1a - Orientation of Workbench Interface and Sketching
In this workshop we introduce the ANSYS Workbench environment and sketching in DesignModeler and/or SpaceClaim. A small model is created from scratch so the users gain some experience with the user interface.
DRD Workshop 1b - Extraction of Fluid Domain
In this workshop we introduce the use of DesignModeler and SpaceClaim and the methods of creating a fluid domain from previously provided structural geometry.
DRD Workshops 2a. Meshing a Fluid Domain
This workshop demonstrates the various meshing controls available in ANSYS Meshing and the associativity between DesignModeler/SpaceClaim and the meshing module using a parametric domain.
DRD Workshop 2b - Creating and Combining Multiple Domain Meshes
This workshop creates both a swept hexagonal mesh with boundary layer and a nonuniform tetrahedral mesh and combines them into a single domain for solving.
DRD Workshop 2c - Multizone Meshing
This workshop uses the multizone mesher to produe a hex dominant mesh and hexacore mesh with and without inflation layers.
DRD Workshop 3 - Stress Analysis of a Pump Fluid End Using Direct and Iterative Solvers
This workshop demonstrates how to conduct a simple flow analysis in CFX and transfer the pressure boundary conditions to Mechanical for subsequent FEA analysis. Relative flow rates between the inlets are also examined.
DRD Workshop 4 - Conjugate Heat Transfer Simulation of Cooling Fin
This workshop covers the creation of a conjugate heat transfer model between two different fluid domains and a tube with heat fins. Downstream flow temperatures and heat transfer coefficients for the fins are calculated.
DRD Workshop 5 - Model Simplification and Flow through a Serpentine Cavity
A serpentine cavity is extracted from a solid model, meshed with a boundary layer and the pressure drop across the model is found.
DRD Workshop 6 - Multiphase Flow in Sand Mixing Tank
For this workshop the fluid domain is extracted from a tank and then various sand and water flows are applied to the inlets of the tank. Initial locations of erosion is predicted along with the rate of erosion on the tank walls.
DRD Workshop 7 - Transient Thermal Analysis of an Electronics Package
For this workshop the fluid domain is extracted from a full 360 degree solid model. The heat source is surrounded by a circular heat sink to help convect away heat as 50W of energy is applied. The transient heat up is calculated.
DRD Workshop 8 - Free Surface Flow with Particles in an Open Channel
A fluid domain is extracted from solid geometry for this simulation. The mesh is created and multiphase flow with air and water is defined. In addition, particulates are added to the water and the analysis is solved as transient to examine particle flow.
DRD Workshop 9 - Rotating Impeller with Cavitation
The purpose of the tutorial is to model cavitation in a centrifugal pump, which involves the use of a rotation domain and the cavitation model.
DRD Workshop 10 - Modeling Pressure Rise Using a Fan Curve and Filter with Source Terms
This workshop simulates a duct with a fan and filter. The fan is not explicitly modeled but a fan curve is used instead and the filter is modeled as a porous domain.
