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 and want to dive deeper into datacenter optimization with CFD.

Dive deeper into the application of Autodesk Simulation CFD to datacenter optimization. Cooling a data center can consume a lot of energy. CFD can be used to model and improve the heat transfer and fluid flow in these facilities, to help optimize the overall performance and prevent equipment from exceeding maximum operating temperatures.

Objectives

  1. Characterize datacenter components to accurately capture their physical behavior in Simulation CFD.
  2. Interpret flow simulation results to improve datacenter layout and configuration.
  3. Interpret thermal simulation results to improve datacenter layout and configuration.
  4. Practice the CFD simulation setup and results review process for a datacenter design scenario.
