Computational Fluid Dynamics
This course will introduce students to a variety of computational
approaches for solving the equations governing fluid dynamics,
focusing on finite difference and finite volume techniques.
Theoretical background material will be introduced as necessary, but
the focus of the course will be on the numerical methods, their
accuracy and stability, and their practical application in computing
real fluid flows. Students will gain experience writing their own
codes, as well as employing existing publicly-available software
packages. Applications will be drawn from problems arising in wave
propagation, incompressible fluids, gas dynamics and porous media.
