Introduction to Engineering Simulations

(To Capture and Predict the Physics using Mathematics)


Have you ever wondered what’s the power of mathematics is? Engineering simulation uses mathematics to predict the behavior of the physical nature of any objects. In this course, students will learn to simulate the engineering problems using a powerful software (tool) called Ansys. You’ll build the mathematical model of a physical problem using Matlab. Students will learn to design, mesh and simulate the model in Ansys for heat transfer and aerodynamic problems. We’ll solve aerospace and mechanical engineering problems. We will apply the concepts studied in classrooms in this software and get the desired results. This course teaches the basics and fundamentals of CFD using Ansys.

This workshop also offers a project which will be published in an esteemed journal. The course will zip through the concept of solving engineering problems using Ansys.

Course Syllabus

This section provides an introduction to the FEA. It illustrates how to recognize an FEA problem and discretize it. In this section, students will learn how to get the Partial Differential Equations (PDE) to simple algebraic equations to solve engineering problems.

Two Heat conduction problems will be solved which are of industrial relevance.

This section provides an overall understanding of solving problems of aerodynamics using Ansys software. This section teaches students an introduction to CFD. Students will learn the hierarchy of Preprocessing, Processing and Post Processing. Students will learn to design, mesh and simulate the engineering problem in this section. List of experiments are as given below:-

  1. Geometric Modeling, Meshing and Simulation of flow through a duct. 
  2. Geometric Modeling, Meshing and Simulation of flow over a rotating and non-rotating circular section at different altitudes. 
  3. Steady-state simulation of flow over an airfoil at different Flow Regimes (Subsonic, Transonic and Supersonic), Angle of Attack and Altitudes. 
  4. Compressible flow simulation through a Convergent Divergent duct at different expansion conditions. Study of shockwaves inside C-D Nozzle. 


Any knowledge gained in the field of engineering is not useful unless and until it is applied or implemented in this physical world. Hence, in this section a project will be carried out by the students to apply all their skills learnt in the software. Working on this project will allow students to expertise in the field of Aero-Mechanical projects. Students will learn to approach a project in an engineering perspective. And again, a project is incomplete until it is recognized. Hence the project will be published in an esteemed journal.
