One Day Training  – USP

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Industrial Ventilation 

Explore the practical applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in Industrial Ventilation for air pollution control. Learn how CFD serves as a powerful tool in designing ventilation systems and troubleshooting issues within industrial settings.

Training Description

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Industrial Ventilation

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Industrial Ventilation is an 8-hours course which focus on how Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) is used in the area of Industrial Ventilation applied for air pollution control. We will show how this visual technique can be a powerful tool in ventilation system design and in troubleshooting. Not only will attendees gain an understanding of how CFD works but also why it has become a critically important method used in the evaluation, optimization, and diagnosis of existing problems with industrial ventilation systems.

What you’ll learn

The purpose of this course is not to make you a CFD expert, but to teach you how CFD can be a widely applied and highlight the potential benefits it can bring. The attendees do not need to have prior knowledge of CFD or industrial ventilation, as it will be an introductory training based on the fundamentals of this discipline. In the course, the basic concepts of ventilation will be taught based on the “ACGIH Industrial ventilation: a manual of recommended practices for design” and we will show how the CFD results can be complementary to the book recommendation, allowing optimization in the design and operation of systems.

In the class, demonstrations will be carried out on how to run the simulation and compare the results with the practical information described in the ventilation book together with tables, equations, and information on best industrial practices. The attendees do not need to bring laptops, as there will be no hands on activities.
