Summary

This course covers the basic aspects of the numerical discretization and solution of the fluid flow and heat transfer equations within the finite volumes framework. Emphasis is on developing a in-house solver and on utilizing opensource CFD tools for more complex flow and heat transfer problems

Content

This course has a very practical approach. Participants will learn the foundations of the numerical discretization based on the finite volumes method by implementing a simplified solver in Matlab to solve simple 1D and 2D fluid flow and heat transfer problems. Afterwards, participants will learn how to setup and solve flow and heat transfer problems in more complex geometries by means of opensource CFD tools (OpenFOAM and Paraview).

Keywords

Numerical simulation, finite volumes method, fluid mechanics, heat transfer

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Recommended courses

Important concepts to start the course

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Transversal skills

Teaching methods

Lectures (about 50% of the classroom time), followed by practical exercises (remaining 50%) at the computer. Weekly assignements.

Expected student activities

Participation in classroom (practical exercises), assignments, final report.

Assessment methods

The participants have to prepare a final report describing the methodology applied to solve the assignments and the related results. The report must be handed to the teacher by the end of the course. The assessment of the student is based on the evaluation of the final report.
