MANE 4140 - Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics

This course provides an understanding of computational methods used in fluid dynamics, and hands-on experience in solving complex flow problems. Students will learn about computational fluid dynamics methods (finite volume method), write code, solve benchmark problems, and analyze the stability and convergence of algorithms. They will use CFD packages to solve problems motivated by complex engineering applications, learn how to represent geometry, mesh fluid volumes, and select models for turbulence.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: ENGR 2250 Thermal and Fluids I, MATH 2010 Multivariate Calculus and Matrix Algebra.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
