As an engineer, you may need to test how a design interacts with fluids. For example, you may need to simulate how air flows over an aircraft wing, how water flows through a filter, or how water seeps under a dam. Carrying out simulations is often a critical step in verifying that a design will be successful. In this hands-on book, you’ll learn in detail how to run Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations using ANSYS Fluent. ANSYS Fluent is known for its power, simplicity and speed, which has helped make it a world leader in CFD software, both in academia and industry.
Unlike any other ANSYS Fluent textbook currently on the market, this book uses applied problems to walk you step-by-step through completing CFD simulations for many common flow cases, including internal and external flows, laminar and turbulent flows, steady and unsteady flows, and single-phase and multiphase flows. You will also learn how to visualize the computed flows in the post-processing phase using different types of plots.
