Course Objectives Computational Fluid Dynamics Course provides an in-depth introduction to the methods and analysis techniques used in computational solutions of fluid mechanics and heat transfer problems. Model problems are used to study the interaction of physical processes and numerical techniques. This course introduces the students to finite volume method as a means of solving different type of differential equations that arise in fluid dynamics. Error control and stability considerations are discussed and demonstrated. The Navier-Stokes equations will be solved using commercial software.
Detail Content What is computational fluid dynamics. Governing equations of fluid flow (navier-stokes equations). Mathematical behavior of partial differential equations. Finite Volume Method for Diffusion Problems. Finite Volume Method for Convection – Diffusion Problems. Solution algorithms for steady flows. Solution of discretised equations. Finite Volume method for unsteady flows. Implementation of boundary conditions. Errors and uncertainty in CFD Modeling.
