Level of course: 3. Undergraduate (First cycle), advanced / 4.-5. Graduate (Second cycle), introductory-intermediate.
Type of course: Core in MSc Mechanical Engineering, elective for other programmes.
Prerequisites (mandatory): Mathematics III T-301-MATH; Thermodynamics T-507-VARM; Fluid Dynamics T-536-RENN, T-606-HEAT Heat Transfer (may be taken parallelly).The main purpose of this course is to introduce the basic principles of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for analyzing fluid flows and heat transfer. Hands on exercises are used to study the basic theory of CFD through programming and using existing commercial and open source CFD codes. Finite difference and finite volume techniques are emphasized.Reading material: Essential computational fluid dynamics, Zikanov Oleg, 2010.
