1. Program overview

Title: Introduction to Fluid Dynamic with ANSYS CFX  - online course

Director: Professor Juan José Benito Muñoz.

Department: Construction & Manufacturing Engineering (UNED University)


  1. Eligibility and requirements


An academic degree is required although university students in the last year of their course may be admitted with documentary evidence.


  1. Goals


This program provides attendees with professional training in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics using ANSYS CFX.  The goal of this course is to give attendees a complete understanding of the ANSYS CFX software and to provide  the  necessary  knowledge  to  use  it,  which  can  be  used  directly  in engineering  and  manufacturing  companies,  scientific  research  institutes  and  in other advanced studies.


Previously to the ANSYS CFX training, a complete training about CFD geometry pre-processing (using ANSYS SpaceClaim) and CFD meshing (using ANSYS Mechanical) is given.


With this objective in mind, the course is fully structured into applied and practical course subjects that include the use of professional software currently used in the market, such as ANSYS CFX.


  1. Contents


The course is divided into four different parts:


  • Geometry modeling with SpaceClaim

  1. Schedule


35 hours of study.  The course lasts from 1 to 6 weeks with full flexibility since no specific delivery date is indicated.


Distance evaluation tests: Attendees must deliver three of the practical exercises proposed in the practical course subject.


  1. Methodology


The learning methodology is entirely online and includes tutorships, software, audiovisual  resources,  documentation,  exercises,  tutorials,  online  evaluation, forums and exams in English. Attendees will have access to all learning materials through the virtual classroom.


  1. Teaching Materials


The main training material is also combined with a selected bibliography for study. These texts are for Application and Practical courses and are also part of the "hands on" exercises.


Attendees  will  have  access  to  educational  software  licenses  of  ANSYS  from Ingeciber for use throughout the application training of the course.


  1. Tutorships


The teaching staff will respond to attendee inquiries via telephone, email, or in person. Phone tutorship’s will be available within the following hours: 

Monday to Friday during office hours and always subject to tutor’s availability.


  1. Evaluation and Grading criteria


Attendee evaluation will be performed through the practical application exercises.


  1. Certification


Certification  will  consist  of  a  diploma  from  ICAEEC  &  Ingeciber  indicating successful completion of the subject by the attendee as well as the grade obtained in the practical application exercises.


  1. Teaching Staff


Professor Juan José Benito Muñoz (Director). Construction & Manufacturing

Engineering Department (UNED).


Mr. Pablo Arrieta Yáñez (Coordinator & tutor). Ingeciber, S.A.


  1. Fees


Tuition fees are €450.


Current attendees and former attendees of  the UNED International  Master’s in Theoretical   and   Practical   Application   of   Finite   Element   Method   and   CAE Simulation are eligible for a 33% discount.


  1. Validation


Attendees  who  have  completed  this  course  can  validate  the  application  and practice  part  of  the  UNED International  Master’s  in  Theoretical  and  Practical Application of Finite Element Method and CAE Simulation for the practical course subject of Module F using ANSYS CFD (CFX) software.
