Abstract

An advanced course in numerical methods focusing on computational fluid dynamics.

Goals

The goal of the course is to give the students

• a presentation of flow phenomena and the partial differential equations that describe them, and methods for numerical flow calculations

so that they will

• be able to understand properties and limitations of different computational models,

• have had experience from simple computational problems such as shocks in nozzles.

Syllabus

Conservation laws: the equations of Euler and Navier-Stokes. Different levels of approximation. Mathematical properties of hyperbolic systems. Shocks, the Rankine-Hugoniot shock relations, turbulence models, boundary layers. Finite approximations. Consistency, stability, convergence, artificial vicosity. Grid generation. Modern high-resolution methods: upstream, Godunov, TVD, and ENO.

Computer exercises with methods for the Euler equations in 1D and different approximations in 2D.

Prerequisites

One of the second courses in numerical methods 2D1220-2D1225, 2D1250-2D1260, 2D1266 and a course in computer science or programming (e.g. 2D1340, 2D1342).

Follow-up

Please discuss with the instructor.

Examination

A written examination (TEN1; 2 cr.).
Computer assignments (LAB1; 2 cr.).
