MEE514 Computational Fluid Dynamics

[3–0, 3 cr.]

The focus will be on introducing a variety of computational techniques for solving model fluid flow equations, with special emphasis on finite difference and finite volume methods. Theoretical background will be covered with focus on accuracy and stability of numerical schemes, as well as their application in real fluid flow problems. Students are expected to write their own codes and employ commercial software such as ANSYS Fluent. Applications will cover incompressible and compressible flows in the viscous and inviscid regimes.

Prerequisite: GNE333 Engineering Analysis; MEE311 Fluid Mechanics
