Applied CFDCFO65312ONL4 -    Daniel J Bodony

Course Description

This course provides an introduction to the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to solve fluid dynamics problems relevant to aerospace engineering. Instruction on the end-to-end workflow, including geometry definition, grid generation, solver selection, solver execution, and solution analysis will be given. Emphasis will be placed on ensuring solution accuracy through verification and validation. Students will be given access to CFD codes and will predict the aerodynamic behavior of several different flow configurations; both low-speed and high-speed applications will be examined.
