Objectives After successfully engaging with the topics of this course, students will be able to

  • solve basic fluid dynamics and heat transfer problems using the Finite Volume Method,
  • generate numerical meshes for CFD problems,
  • prescribe adequate boundary conditions,
  • understand the differences between common turbulence models,
  • perform post-processing of CFD simulations,
  • independently work on a small CFD-project.

The level of mathematical modeling and analysis of the mentioned topics is comparable to the level of the textbook: Versteeg, Malalasekera: An Introduction to Computational Fluid Mechanics, Pearson, 2007

  • fundamentals of numerical simulation of fluid flows using the Finite Volume method (Computational Fluid Dynamics - CFD)
  • working with the software-package FLUENT/ICEM
  • generation of tetrahedral- and hexahedral-meshes
  • practising the use of FLUENT/ICEM by means of standardised examples
  • elaboration on an individual project
Criteria for evaluation Homework, evaluation of a final project
Methods Guided tutorial examples, independent project
