Customized and on-site training

Below you’ll find our scheduled courses. To participate in each course you’ll find a form at the end of the page. For customized on-site training please contact us at support@volupe and we’ll arrange a short meeting to discuss your needs and set up a training date for your team.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ two-day introductory course

The introductory course for Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is usually devided into four sessions, of three hours each. Here you learn how to navigate in the software, as well as understanding the fundamentas behind this multi-physics tool. The sessions are alternating between theory, practical examples and work shops.

Session 1: First a live demonstration of how to set up a case in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ will be provided. General theory for CFD simulations will be covered, and for the work shops we will focus on the inbedded CAD tool, 3D-CAD, to create our own geometries and fluid volume.

Session 2: The strong tool Surface wrapping will be in focus for this session, together with meshing, both in theory and with work shops.

Session 3: In the third session you will run a steady state simulation, by setting up a work shop case. Post-processing will be discussed and practiced on setting up as well.

Session 4: In the last session we will cover transient simulations, but in theory and by a work shop (using over set mesh). There is also some room for customized material, if there is something you are extra interested in.

Prerequisites: Simcenter STAR-CCM+ installed, engineering background (previous experience of CFD simulations will ease the learning process).

Multiphase training in Simcenter STAR-CCM+

Are you interested in deepening your knowledge and learning more about multiphase simulations in Simcenter STAR-CCM+? Do you need to freshen up on the multiphase theory in Simcenter STAR-CCM+? At Volupe we can now provide training in multiphase simulations. The training covers lectures with multiphase theory but also examples and live demonstrations to show how to setup and run multiphase simulations in Simenter STAR-CCM+. In the training you will also perform workshops and hands on training in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ with instructions a guidance from the tutor.

The training is divided in three modules as outlined below. Each module covers specific multiphase simulation fields within Simcenter STAR-CCM+. It is possible for you pick which modules you are interested in and to tailor your training from half a day up to several days, depending on the range of multiphase modelling you wish to learn about. The model types of your interest will be discussed together with the necessary multiphase interactions to combine the different models. It will also be possible for you to bring your own case that we can work together on and discuss the necessary models needed to describe your particular physics and required setup. We will also teach you how to differentiate between different multiphase flow regimes.

This Volupe blog post can further give an indication for what will be included in the course: Multiphase modeling capabilities in Simcenter STAR-CCM+.

Module 1: Lagrangian framework, (LMP) and Discrete Element Method (DEM) 
Duration: 1 days 
Content and purpose: Under the Langrangian approach we can typically simulate liquid droplets together with evaporation and condensations using LMP. And include solid-solid interaction using the DEM framework.

Module 2: Eulerian framework, VOF and Fluid Film 
Duration: 0.5 days 
Content and purpose: If we have completely immiscible fluids, we can use the interface tracking method of VOF. Basically, all multiphase models can be used with the Fluid film model to provide a good estimation of the fluid behaviour near solid walls, without the need to resolve the mesh too much.

Module 3: Eulerian framework, EMP, MMP and DMP 
Duration: 1 days 
Content and purpose: The Eulerian framework can simulate different phases separately using EMP, solving transport equations for each separate phase. The MMP model is another simplified option, useful when the simulated phases can be considered miscible.

Prerequisites: Simcenter STAR-CCM+ installed, basic knowledge about CFD (potentially gained from Volupe’s introductory course in Simcenter STAR-CCM+).

Don’t hesitate to reach out to the instructor and author of the course Robin Victor (+46 731 473 121 or to the Volupe technical lead Carl Stenson (+46 766 336 599) to describe your needs and wishes for a multiphase training session.

Simcenter FloEFD one-day introductory course

This introductory course for Simcenter FloEFD will teach you how to create simulations in the software, given a geometry prepared for fluid calculations. The course will provide experience and tips about setting up simulations, and also evaluating the results. This course is perfect for you who recently started with the software, may have less experience with CFD (computational fluid dynamics) and or want to become a better simulation engineer.

Topics that will be coverd in the course are for example: Basic theory of CFD, how to set up the wizard (global settings), meshing (both in theory and though work shops), post-processing data, adding heat transfer (to a cloned project), time-dependent (transient) simulation and also information about modules that can be added to simulate additional physics (such as structural analysis).

The course will start with a live demonstration of how to run a simulation, and then instructions of how to set up the work shop will be provided mixed with theory and tips.

Prerequisites: Simcenter FloEFD installed, engineering background.
