Short Course on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Rotary Positive Displacement Machines

4th Short Course and Forum: Computational Fluid Dynamics in Rotary Positive Displacement Machines

**ANNOUNCEMENT - Call for manuscripts for the Special Issue in Designs now OPEN**

About the Short Course

Following the success of three previous forums/short-courses on CFD in Positive Displacement Machines (PDM), in which there was strong participation from the compressor industry, CFD software providers and academia, this fourth event is dedicated to advanced topics in the application of CFD in PDM for industrial and research use. The main topics of the 4th short course and forum will be:

·         Advances in grid generation, CFD tools and new techniques for PD machine analysis.
·         Modelling leakage flows and conjugate heat transfer 
·         Prediction of clearance gap sizes during operation and application of modern FSI computations.
·         Stability and accuracy of Multiphase flow calculations in PD machines

Presentations will be delivered by leading scientists and researchers from industry and academia, and will provide insight into new technologies and the state of the art in modelling PDM.

This short course and forum is organised by the Centre for Compressor Technology at City, University of London.
