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 in 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. Both parts end with a group project where you select a problem of your own choice to investigate further.
Course description for study year 2023-2024. Please note that changes may occur.
There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
