# 2D1280, Strömningsmekaniska beräkningar/Computational fluid dynamics, 4 poäng

2D1280 is the first part of a comprehensive two-course unit on theory
and practice of
computational fluid dynamics. The second part, 5C1940, will be given in
period 4 by
the department of Mechanics. You are recommended to take both parts of the unit but
they can also be taken separately;

Part 1, 2D1280, is an introduction to computational fluid dynamics. The
emphasis is on the basic conservation laws
and their numerical modeling. Modern methods for steady and unsteady
compressible inviscid flow described by the
Euler equations will be treated in some detail and viscous compressible
flow in less detail.
The application examples range from shock-tube flows and quasi-1D flow
of a perfect gas through a nozzle,
to plane viscous transonic flow. The computer labs use MATLAB. They
illustrate such flow phenomena as Mach
waves, shocks, and properties of numerical schemes for shocked flows.

Part 2, 5C1940 is mainly focused on incompressible flow. Different
numerical methods using space discretization by
finite volumes and finite elements will be developed and applied first
to Stokes equations and then to the
(Reynolds-averaged) Navier Stokes equations. The students will also be
introduced to turbulence modeling and
commercial state of the art software for flow
simulations and visualization. The course finishes with a project work
where the students can choose different
real world applications and carry out the CFD analysis.

The course material includes a standard textbook, guidelines for CFD
analyses, and supplementary
lecture notes on e.g.numerical
methods for hyperbolic partial differential
equations and for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations.
