Introduction to computational fluid dynamics
The course is organised as intensive studies in October.
The course consists of lectures, exercises, and seminar presentations. The main topics of the course are mass and momentum balances, the Navier-Stokes equations, potential flow, numerical computation of flow fields, introduction to turbulence models and multiphase flows. The final part of the course is devoted to CFD modeling using a software.
The aim of the course is to give the participants a deeper knowledge of the theory of fluid mechanics. It is in particular intended for postgraduate students who are familiar with the elements of engineering fluid dynamics (e.g. use of energy balances, calculation of pressure drops in pipe flow, and estimation of drag forces on obstacles) but feel that they need deeper theoretical insight to be able to enter the field of computational fluid dynamics.
