Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics
1 February - 30 June 2015
, Home Study Course
Held in conjunction with:
This advanced course is the second of the three-part series of courses which will prepare you for a career in the rapidly expanding field of computational fluid dynamics. 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. A fundamental knowledge of computer programming and familiarity with a basic graphic package are required.
• Grid-Generation-Structured Grids
• Transformation of the Equations of Fluid Motion from Physical Space to Computational Space
• Euler Equations
• Parabolized Navier-Stokes Equations
• Navier-Stokes Equations
• Grid-Generation-Unstructured Grids Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations
• Finite Volume Schemes
Who Should Attend
This course is designed for engineers, scientist, and technical managers who are interested in development and/or implementation of available CFD codes. The aim of this course is to extend the concepts of numerical schemes to a system of equations typically expressed in a vector form. The content of this course is equivalent to a one-semester graduate course. Furthermore, you must have had an introductory course in CFD, e.g., the AIAA Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics course. Access to a high-end PC, workstation, or a mainframe computer, along with a FORTRAN compiler and graphics, is necessary for applications.
