CAD Geometry for CFD

Course

Simulation CFD Applied: Characterizing AEC Components

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.
