Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
Room 1.067 / Medienlabor HLRS (Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart), Universität Stuttgart, Nobelstr. 19, D-70569 Stuttgart
2014, Monday Mar. 31, 10:00 - Friday Apr. 4, 15:00
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 organized by the HLRS, the IAG and the University of Kassel. 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).

HLRS is part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS), which is one of the six PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) that started in Feb. 2012. The mandate for the PATCs is as follows: "The PRACE Advanced Training Centres will serve as European hubs of advanced, world-class training for researchers working in the computational sciences." (see D3.2.3)
This course is not part of the PATC curriculum and is not sponsored by the PATC program.
At the first or second evening we schedule a short guided walk through the city followed by a dinner at Stuttgart's first restaurant-brewery, the "Calwer Eck" (Swabian restaurant). On Wednesday, we plan to organize a visit in our 3-D visualization CAVE. At (Tuesday or) Thursday, a visit of the exhibition of contemporary art in the "New States Gallery" is recommended (opened until 8pm). Also fun is a visit of Stuttgart's TV-tower in the evening. It is the first tower build of concrete in the world, and also the first TV tower in the world. (Currently closed for building repairs.) If you arrive already on Sunday morning, you may visit the world class Mercedes Museum. All social events are on a self paying basis, i.e., not part of any course fees. We would be happy if you can join these events.
See HLRS address and travel-info. The next public transport stations are: "Universität, Stuttgart" (S-Bahn station, 15 min on foot) and "Lauchhau, Stuttgart" (Bus station, 4 min on foot to HLRS, bus lines 84, 92, 746, 747, 748, but not 82! from S-Bahn station "Universität, Stuttgart" and bus line 81 from S-Bahn station "Stuttgart-Vaihingen").
Accomodation: see HLRS accomodation-info and additional hotel list. Private Bed&Breakfast is also available (might be cheaper than the hotels), e.g., www.nd-bed-breakfast.de. A DJH youth hostel is also available.

If you cannot come to the course, please send an email to the organizer as soon as possible. This would allow us to accept additional participants from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
NO-SHOW: Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops (because it is too expensive to produce unused copies of the slides for them).
Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
An older version of this course with most of the material (including the audio information) can also be viewed in the ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards MPI-3.0 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP (about 10 Euro).
