Computational Fluid Dynamics AC274 Logo - by Giacomo Falcucci

(website designed by Giacomo Falcucci)

The main goal of the course is to make the student acquainted with major theoretical and computational techniques for the simulation of fluid flows at the continuum and mesoscale levels.

At the completion of the course, the student will be able to: 

Employ and develop concepts based on both the continuum and mesoscale description of flowing matter;

Read the current literature based on continuum and mesoscale approaches for scientific and engineering applications involving complex flows (turbulence, multiphase flows, soft matter flows) ;

Choose the most appropriate computational techniques for modeling scientific and engineering problems that pertain to above mentioned fields;

Code the basic fluid and mesoscale methods for modern scientific and engineering applications involving fluid flows; 

Appreciate the basic methodologies behind major commercial CFD codes;

Contribute to research projects related to complex fluid dynamics at large.
