MANE 6720 - Computational Fluid Dynamics

Course focuses on computational approaches to solve the Navier-Stokes equations. Course assumes knowledge of numerical methods and therefore directly attacks the obstacles to applying these methods to the Navier-Stokes equations. Issues concerning implementation of finite difference methods (FDM), finite volume methods (FVM) and finite element methods (FEM) will be discussed. These issues include: the discrete formulation, nonlinear equation iterator (steady)/marcher (time-accurate), linear equation formation, boundary condition prescription and linear equation solution.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: MANE 6660 or equivalent.

When Offered: Spring term even-numbered years.

Credit Hours: 3
