3.Where to get the tutorials and exercises
Step 1: Open the Cradle product you wish to use. This will open what is referred to as the Kicker.
Step 2: Click on the user guide button to see the options available.
Operation: This option gives you stepbystep instructions to complete a relatively simple CFD simulation. The intent of these tutorials are to familiarize yourself with the user interface and the general workflow that should be followed to setup a simulation.
In version 2020 of scFLOW, you have this list of example problems to help you quickly learn how to use the user interface:
 Duct flow
 Flow around a glider
 Internal duct flow (transient)
 Restart analysis
 Transient analysis of only temperature field with a fixed flow field
 Steady state analysis of free surface flow around a ship hull
 Thermal flow analysis on a projector
 Transient flow analysis of a sirocco fan
Exercise: This option gives you instructions to complete specific types of simulations however the instructions given is not as detailed as the operation tutorials. It is assumed that the user has some knowledge about the user interface and how the workflow of the software works (obtained by following the operation examples).
