Computational Fluid Turbulence
1 February - 30 June 2015
, Home Study Course
Held in conjunction with:
This course is the third of the three-part series of courses which will prepare you for a career in the rapidly expanding field of computational fluid dynamics with emphasis in fluid turbulence. Completion of these three courses will give you the equivalent of one semester of undergraduate and two semesters of graduate work. The courses are supported extensively with textbooks, computer programs, and user manuals. You can use the computer programs to develop your own code, or you may modify the existing code for assigned applications.
You will need access to a PC, FORTRAN compiler, and graphics package for the software applications. Knowledge of computer programming and familiarity with a graphic package are required.
• Introduction to Turbulence and Turbulent Flows
• Reynolds average Navier-Stokes Equations Parabolic Equations
• Turbulence Models
• Compact Finite Difference Formulations
• Boundary Conditions
• Large Eddy Simulation
• Direct Numerical Simulation
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for engineers, scientists, and technical managers who are interested in learning the fundamentals and principles of turbulence and numerical schemes to solve turbulent flows. The objectives of this course are to provide simple, but in-depth explanations of solution schemes. The content of this course is equivalent to a one-semester course offered to graduate students. Prior courses in fluid mechanics, partial differential equations, and advanced CFD are required.
