Computational Fluid Dynamics

  • Number of credits 7.5 Credits
  • Level Master’s level
  • Starting Autumn Term 2018

About the course

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.
