INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

From January 11  to January 15, 2010

von Karman Institute, Rhode-St-Genèse, Belgium

VKI-LS

The objective of this course is to provide an elementary tutorial presentation on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), emphasizing the fundamentals and surveying a variety of solution techniques whose applications range from low speed incompressible flow to hypersonic flow. The course is aimed at persons who have had little or no experience in this field, both recent graduates as well as professional engineers, and will provide

 

  • an insight into the philosophy and power of CFD
  • an understanding of the mathematical nature of the fluid dynamics equations
  • a familiarity with various solution techniques

 

At the conclusion of the course, an attendee will be well prepared to understand the literature in this field, to follow more sophisticated state-of-the-art lecture series, and to begin the application of CFD to his or her special areas of concern. While the techniques to be discussed will be applicable to all fields of fluid dynamics, the lecturers and the majority of examples presented will carry a strong flavor of aeronautics.

The Director of this lecture series is Professor G. Degrez of the von Karman Institute.
