WindSim | The Basics | Online
Get some hands-on experience with WindSim.
Our basic course focuses on the advantages—but also the challenges—of applying CFD techniques to wind energy projects. After the course, you will be able to work efficiently with WindSim and be able to evaluate the quality of the results—with a certificate to prove it. No prior knowledge about WindSim or CFD is required. The Basic course is a 1 day training with a follow-up session the week after.
