Class Objectives
/Class Outline
Computational Fluid Dynamics is the simulation of fluids engineering systems using modeling (mathematical physical problem formulation) and numerical methods (discretization methods, solvers, numerical parameters, and grid generations, etc.)

The result of CFD analyses is relevant engineering data used in Conceptual studies of new designs, detailed product development, troubleshooting and design.

Students will have a basic knowledge of the essential elements involved in CFD.
Students will have an introductory knowledge of methods used to solve nonlinear system of equations iteratively.
Students will be able to develop numerical algorithms for computing governing equations for fluid (Navier-Stokes).
Students will have a desire to understand further concepts in CFD, especially as concerns the modeling of systems of governing equations in naval architect, aerodynamics, vehicle, civil eng. and environmental eng.
