Introduction to CONVERGE

September 5–6, 2023 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM CDT

CONVERGE is an innovative multi-purpose CFD software that can provide insight into internal combustion engines, compressors, fans, blowers, pumps, fuel injectors and sprays, aftertreatment systems, gas turbines, biomedical devices, oil and gas applications, and many other systems. This two-day course offers a hands-on introduction to CONVERGE. You will learn about the CONVERGE solver and modeling options while working through a wide variety of example cases. Because CONVERGE has a completely automated meshing process, you do not need to spend any time preparing the volume mesh, which simplifies the case setup process.

During this course, you will have plenty of time for hands-on practice supervised by experienced CONVERGE support engineers. You will practice preparing the surface geometry, setting up input parameters, running the simulation, and post-processing results for a variety of cases.

Upon the completion of this course, you will know how to:

  • Begin a new project in CONVERGE Studio
  • Import a surface geometry from a CAD program
  • Coarsen the surface triangulation to reduce the computational cost
  • Create boundaries
  • Manually repair surface defects
  • Prepare moving boundaries for motion
  • Set up inlaid meshes, including appropriate boundary and initial conditions
  • Set up solver parameters and data files
  • Set up appropriate boundary and initial conditions
  • Set up wall heat transfer modeling and output heat transfer quantities for thermal analysis
  • Set up additional modeling options, including for turbulence, combustion, and sources
  • Control grid settings throughout the computational domain
  • Run CONVERGE and monitor your simulation
  • Post-process results in CONVERGE Studio
