MANE 6760 - Finite Element Methods for Fluid Dynamics

Analysis of finite element methods for basic classes of problems in fluid mechanics. Starting with scalar transport equations and building to compressible and incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Emphasis on developing and analyzing formulations that are stable and higher-order accurate such as Galerkin/least-squares methods and SUPG methods. Unsteady formulations are proposed using space-time methods and semi-discrete methods.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: MANE 6660.

When Offered: Spring term odd-numbered years.

Credit Hours: 3
