MEE718 Turbulence Modeling

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course covers the basic definitions and characteristics of turbulent flows and provides an overview of concepts used in turbulence modeling. Topics include, Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations, turbulent scales, hierarchy of turbulence simulations, zero-equation and half-equation models, one-equation models, two-equation models, multi-equation and scale models, nonlinear mode/second-moment models, transition-sensitive models, Scale-Adaptive Simulation (SAS), Large Eddy Simulation (LES), Detached Eddy Simulation (DES), Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS). The course includes applications using commercial software such as ANSYS Fluent.

Pre-requisite: MEE 311 Fluid Mechanics
