Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) (MSK600)
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) lets us solve the governing equations for fluid dynamics for complex engineering problems. CFD is today used in a wide range of industries, some examples are:
- air resistance for airplanes and cars
- wind and wave loads on buildings and marine structures
- heat- and mass transfer in chemical processing plants
- consequence modelling of fires and explosions in the oil- and gas industry
In this course you will get an introduction to computational fluid dynamics. The first part of the course deals with fundamental theory and numerical methods. The second part of the course introduces use of the practical CFD software OpenFOAM. The course ends with a group project where you select a problem of your own choice to simulate in OpenFOAM.
