Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to describe the most important procedures and methods for numerical flow simulation. Students are then able to plan, analyze and evaluate simple numerical flow simulations and to exploit or avoid the advantages and disadvantages of special numerical models.

Subject of course

The course focuses on the following aspects, which are discussed using practical examples in particular:

  • Governing Equations
  • Finite-Difference, Finite-Volume, and Finite-Element Method
  • Grid Generation
  • Boundary Conditions
  • Turbulence Models
  • Postprocessing and Presentation of Results
  • Quality and Trust evaluation

Teaching methods

The lecture shows the practical work process of flow simulators using application examples. When explaining the individual work steps of the flow simulation process in the lecture, special attention is paid to conveying the conceptual understanding of the physical principles.
