About

This course was developed for practicing engineers within the AEC industry, and advanced students, who are looking for a primer on using Autodesk Simulation CFD on their projects. This course is is useful for people who already know the fundamentals of Autodesk Simulation CFD but want to learn more about the specifics of representing common elements in AEC simulation models.

Dive deeper into the application of Autodesk Simulation CFD to building design. Characterization is the process of representing the physical, thermal, and flow characteristics of an element in your model. Strategically characterizing components allows their effects to be accounted for without the complexity of explicitly modeling them. Learn best practices for efficiently representing the model elements you'll most likely encounter in building design.

Objectives

  1. Learn to strategically approach setting up simulations to get good results faster.
  2. Become familiar with characterization methods for heat exchangers
  3. Become familiar with characterization methods for building occupants
  4. Become familiar with characterization methods for walls and windows
  5. Become familiar with characterization methods for air handling systems
  6. Become familiar with characterization methods for diffusers
