ME-474 / 5 crédits

Enseignant: Boujo Edouard

Langue: Anglais


Summary

This course provides practical experience in the numerical simulation of fluid flows. Numerical methods are presented in the framework of the finite volume method. A simple solver is developed with Matlab, and a commercial software is used for more complex problems.

Content

Keywords

Numerical simulation, Fluid mechanics

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

  • Incompressible fluid mechanics (ME-344)
  • Numerical analysis (MATH-251)

Recommended courses

  • Fluid flow (ME-271)
  • Discretization methods in fluids (ME-371)

 

Important concepts to start the course

  • Computer-aided design (CAD)
  • Explain and apply the concepts of mass, energy, and momentum balance, E1
  • Define, describe and apply the basic flow equations, such as the Navier-Stokes equations, AH14
  • Understand the basics of computer programming; develop a (simple) structured software using a programming language / environment such as C, Fortran or Matlab, AH25

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Describe the physical behaviour of a flow in scientific terms, AH1
  • Identify and apply the different steps in a numerical simulation (e.g. geometry and mesh generation, computation, post-processing) and integrate all the essential basic concepts in a numerical flow simulation, AH18
  • Assess / Evaluate numerical accuracy as a function of the choice of simulation parameters, AH20
  • Analyze numerical solutions and identify any inconsistencies with respect to physical reality; understand and apply the concepts of verification and validation, AH21
  • Perform a numerical simulation with appropriate software; understand the limits of each software in terms of its application domain and accuracy of the results obtained, AH26
  • Choose the appropriate turbulence model for a given turbulent flow, AH27

Transversal skills

  • Use both general and domain specific IT resources and tools
  • Write a scientific or technical report.
  • Plan and carry out activities in a way which makes optimal use of available time and other resources.
  • Continue to work through difficulties or initial failure to find optimal solutions.

Teaching methods

Lectures, practical computer exercises, and a mini-project.

Expected student activities

  • Attend class hours (theoretical lectures + practical exercises to learn the methods and the software).
  • Finish exercises at home.
  • Carry out the mini-project and write a report.

Assessment methods

One written report (mini-project).
