Introduction to ANSYS Fluid Dynamics (CFX, Fluent) on LRZ HPC Systems
|Date:||Monday, April 8 - Friday, April 12, 2019, 09:00-17:00|
|Location:||LRZ Building, Boltzmannstr. 1, D-85748 Garching near Munich, Kursraum 2 H.U.010|
The focus of this 5-day course is targeted on researchers with good knowledge in the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and potentially with some first experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The course will focus on the introduction to the ANSYS Fluid Dynamics software packages, i.e. ANSYS CFX and ANSYS Fluent. Further, participants will be familiarized with the main steps of the typical CFD workflow, in particular with CFD preprocessing/ CFD setup creation, serial and parallel solver execution and CFD postprocessing in both CFD solver systems CFX and Fluent. Correctness of boundary conditions and CFD setup specifications, solver convergence control, solver monitoring, customization capabilities of the solvers and the postprocessing as well as recommended CFD best practices are covered.
The course further focusses on the usage of the ANSYS CFD software in a typical Linux cluster environment for massively parallel computations. This includes a basic Linux primer, introduction to LRZ HPC systems and network environment, intro to the use of schedulers like Slurm and LoadLeveler, CFD remote visualization and aspects of successful CFD simulation strategies in such an HPC environment. Finally some aspects of workflow automation using Python as scripting language are targeted as well.
Wednesday (10. April 2019, 2pm - 4:30pm) : CADFEM Session
What participants will not learn in this course?
This course is addressed to young scientists, PHD students and under-graduate students (Master level) with so far limited to no experience with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), but with the aim to use in future the High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources of the LRZ for their research. Basic knowledge of Linux and LRZ computer environment is a plus.
Handouts/PDF’s of the course are provided to participants.
The CFD and HPC exercises will be done partially on local PC’s running Windows-10 and on the IvyMUC Linux Cluster at LRZ. Files of the interactive sessions are made available to participants.
