Course 2010-E: Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
GRS, RWTH Aachen, Schinkelstr. 2a, 52062 Aachen.
2010, Monday Sep. 6, 10:00 - Friday Sep. 10, 14:40
Abstract: The course deals with current numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics. The emphasis is placed on explicit finite volume methods for the compressible Euler equations. Moreover outlooks on implicit methods, the extension to the Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence modelling are given. Additional topics are classical numerical methods for the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, Aeracoustics and high order numerical methods for the solution of systems of partial differential equations. The last day is dedicated to parallelization of explicit and implicit solvers.
Hands-on sessions will manifest the contents of the lectures. The emphasis of these session is put on the application of CFD codes, especially on grid generation, visualization and the interpretation of results. Furthermore the implementation of algorithms presented in the lectures points up the general structure of CFD codes.
The course is developed by the HLRS, the Institute of Aerodynamics and Gasdynamics (IAG, University of Stuttgart), the University of Kassel, and the German Research School for Simulation Sciences (GRS, RWTH Aachen). It is based on the course "Numerical Gasdynamics" held at the IAG which has been awarded the "Landeslehrpreis (prize for excellence in teaching) Baden-Württemberg 2003" (held at Uni. Stuttgart, under auspices of the BMBF project NUSS, contract 08NM227). The course is organized by GRS, RWTH Aachen.
