Overview of Training Courses

We have packed numerous important simulation options that are available at Simcenter into training courses. When it comes to the scope, we have mostly based ourselves on the respective license packages. Choosing the right training course is certainly not easy for you. So, just give us a call to discuss which training is right for you. The following is a structured list of the training courses we offer. If you select a link, the detailed description appears.

Duration

4 days

Description

With Simcenter Thermal / Flow or ESC (Electronic System Cooling) tasks of fluid mechanics, complex thermal problems as well as coupled thermal / fluid tasks can be solved.

This enables one solver each for thermal and fluid mechanical calculations, which can be coupled with each other if necessary. In this seminar we deal with the methodology for the coupling between the fluid mechanical and thermal solver.
