Last year was a busy year at ENGYS for webinars, with more than 17 different sessions and even more virtual events (See Table 3 at the bottom of this post). Since most simulation engineers were working remotely, we saw a huge uptick in webinar attendance, especially for our introductory talks on ELEMENTS and some more specialized talks on surface optimization with HELXY adjoint. It was great to see so many users ask questions afterwards; setup one-on-one support sessions to talk in more detail; and start applying their new knowledge to use and leveraged new features. With this in mind, we’ve started a new series of webinars for those that want to learn in more focused sessions. This has prompted the Learn by Example CFD Series which are:
- Short time commitments that are 20 minute sessions, with introductory theory and practical demonstrations within HELYX and ELEMENTS
- Focused topics with a standard format to maximize learning in a short period of time
- Extensions of existing training that is provided on-demand from ENGYS , with test cases added afterwards to our training site to give current customers more test cases to learn on their own
If you’re new to HELYX and ELEMENTS or you’re thinking about moving away from your other CFD software packages, this is a great opportunity to see the GUI in action with little time commitment.
Learn by Example ELEMENTS Sessions
Our vehicle simulation platform built specifically for simplifying, standardizing, and strengthening your CFD simulation capability. The “Learn by Example” series for ELEMENTS is aimed at an introduction to the software, with some of the most common requests for advanced demonstration. There is one session reserved for existing customers only, since we will dive into the templates within ELEMENTS that give users control over meshing, numerics, simulation execution, and post-processing.

Learn by Example HELYX Sessions
Our general purpose CFD software (HELYX) is fully capable of meshing, case setup, execution, and post-processing cases for a complete CFD analysis. The “Learn by Example” series for HELYX covers an introductory session and then adds very specific sessions on compilation with CMAKE, new additions to porous media, and powerful multi-region meshing and simulation features.

If you’re not a current user, all of the webinars cover some theory/workflow and will be relevant to your learning about how we perform CFD with HELYX and ELEMENTS. If you find that your work can be solved with some of the presented features, it’s worth the times to schedule a discovery meeting to dive into more detail on what you and your team needs.
