Campus College of E&ME
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Computational Fluid Dynamics II
Course Code ME-833
Credit Hours 3-0
Pre-Requisutes Computational Fluid Dynamics I
Course Objectives This course on Computational Fluid Dynamics aims to introduce the students to the techniques on understanding the flow physics and numerical solution techniques for unsteady turbulent flows. Initial part of this course covers the fundamental aspect related to the nature and different types of turbulent flows. In the later part, the numerical techniques to simulate turbulent flows are discussed which include DNS, LES and turbulent modeling (RANS). Finally, a brief introduction to different statistical properties of turbulent flows are discussed which are used to characterize turbulence in different flows.
