Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a
valuable resource in engineering.
Commercial CFD tools can be used to predict
performance in a very short
The course is an introduction to advanced
CFD codes, covering aspects of
geometry modeling, grid generation, solution
strategy, and post-processing.
In particular, structured and unstructured
mesh generation techniques
and the conversion of CAD entities into
CFD-ready models are presented.
Numerical methods for the incompressible
Navier-Stokes equations are
introduced with emphasis on accuracy evaluation
and efficiency. Several
turbulence closures are readily available
in commercial CFD codes; a
tutorial will be given on basic concepts
in turbulence modeling and
several examples will show the impact
of the modeling assumptions.
The final part of the course deals with
the development of customized
physical models into commercial CFD codes
using the User Defined
Routines and with the use of command files
for parametric studies
