The course covers numerical methods for physical simulations of gas and liquid flows. The course is based on the finite difference method and the finite element method with emphasis on fluid dynamics and includes various computational problems in fluid mechanics such as boundary conditions and meshing. In the practical part of the course, the software package COMSOL is used and the course provides an introduction of relevant features of the program. A computational project in COMSOL completes the course.
90 credits including Fluid Mechanics and Scientific Computing I or equivalent. Swedish for basic eligibility for higher education programmes and English A/5. Requirements for Swedish only apply if the course is held in Swedish.
Applicants in some programs at Umeå University have guaranteed admission to this course. The number of places for a single course may therefore be limited.
