This is a three-branch course covering theory, implementation, and application of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The theory side covers the basics of CFD, finite volume discretization schemes, time integration, solution of systems of equations, boundary conditions, error analysis and turbulence models. On the implementation side students will implement a number of small-scale CFD solvers and pre-processing tools in order to get a working knowledge of the simulation process. The application side covers the use of a fully featured, readily available CFD solver to study an array of gradually complex flow phenomena.
