Course

Simulation CFD Fundamentals 1: Simulation Process, Geometry, and Materials

Gain a fundamental understanding of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology. This course starts with an explanation of the workflow of Autodesk Simulation CFD, and how it can help the building design process. Then it covers the basic process of using your CAD geometry for CFD simulations. Lastly, you'll learn how to apply materials that capture the physical properties that you need to simulate in your model.

Project Phases & Level of Development

The building process has been refined over thousands of years. While every project’s process is slightly different, projects generally progress along several standard phases. It’s important to know the right type and level of information that’s needed within each phase to create a high performance building.

Introduction to Building Performance Analysis Course

This Introduction to Building Performance Analysis course will provide you with a background for building performance analysis (BPA) and help you later when you learn how to actually use Autodesk software. This course does not require any software use, but it’s a good prerequisite for Autodesk software based courses.

Performance Based Conceptual Design and Analysis

Designing with BIM tools is a process that can be approached with several different strategies. The first unit, Basic BIM Modeling, walks you through the basics of modeling in BIM with objects like walls, windows, floors and roofs. This unit outlines a different approach where a conceptual mass is created to study design options before building a detailed BIM model.
