Predicting Fluid Force and Drag with ANSYS CFD - e-Learning

As an object moves through fluid, it will encounter resistance from the surrounding medium. Predicting the resulting forces is important to many engineering applications. Some include lift and drag on airfoils, automobiles and ship hulls, torque in rotating machinery, and forces resulting from internal flows. ANSYS CFD provides powerful tools for the accurate prediction of fluid forces that is essential to your design process.

In this ANSYS e-Learning session, CAE Associates' Project Manager Mike Kuron discusses and demonstrates key analysis details for predicting fluid forces with ANSYS CFD. Specific topics covered include:

  • Overview of fluid forces in CFD
  • Meshing and Modeling concerns specific to fluid force prediction
  • Post-Processing and Interpreting ANSYS CFD Results
