An Introduction to Material Definitions in CFD
- Become familiar with material and device types.
- Gain hands on familiarity by creating custom materials and devices.
- Quantify the effects of material characterization on simulation results.
The use of Autodesk Simulation CFD to model AEC applications will require the proper assignment of materials. Standard materials are comprised of fluids (e.g. air, water) and solids (e.g. wood, steel). Devices are special types of materials that have been developed to represent complex AEC components such as filters, fans and air conditioning units
This module will discuss the effects of material characterization and give examples of material device definitions commonly used in AEC applications.
