Register interest in CFD course


"Matrix’s Introduction to CFD course provided an outstanding overview of the fundamental principles and key parameters and approaches analysts need to consider. The CFD process followed and advocated was particularly valuable for our product development engineers who will be doing occasional CFD analyses. Even though we don’t use the same software program as was used in the course, there was no difficulty in performing the exercises or learning from them. All our attendees found the 2-day course to be very worthwhile." Fisher & Paykel Appliances


"The CFD course by Matrix gave an excellent grounding in the underlying principles for using CFD and in the methods and tools that can be used. The course provided us with a very good understanding of how to undertake an analysis and how to be confident in its results. Matrix had done their homework and prepared very comprehensive and relevant course content.  We look forward to attending the next one!" Marine Industrial Design Ltd
