Advanced Thermal and Flow Analysis Training

Date(s) - Jun 27, 2013 - Jun 28, 2013

Cypress, CA


Software / Version: NX™ 8.0
User Level: Intermediate
Duration: 2 days
Who should attend: Designers, engineers who use NX™ to model complex heat transfer and fluid flow for challenging multi-physics applications

The NX™ Advanced Thermal and Flow Analysis course provides students with comprehensive instruction in the use of the NX™ Thermal and Flow – advanced software to model heat transfer, radiation and 3D fluid flow problems. Students will learn the skills necessary to incorporate comprehensive radiation modeling including solar and radiative heating, fully coupled with thermal and fluid flow analysis. Students learn how to apply advanced thermal and flow boundary conditions. The course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of how the software handles heat transfer by conduction, convection and radiation and includes a variety of examples and tutorials addressing a wide range of applications.
