APMA 930:
Computational Fluid Dynamics

(Spring 2011)


Course Description:

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.
