AE 598 MAO - Modal Analysis of Fluid Flow

Fall 2023

Modal Analysis of Fluid FlowMAO70953ONL4 -    Andres Goza

Course Description

Students in this course will learn to apply modal analysis techniques to represent multi-scale velocity data. Topics covered include proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), dynamic mode decomposition (DMD), and spectral proper orthogonal decomposition (SPOD), in addition to analytical techniques including stability theory and resolvent analysis. Students will learn the fundamentals behind these techniques and will apply them to fluid dynamics data sets to build reduced-order models and gain insight into the physics of the flow. The term project will culminate in the writing of a conference-style paper that students can choose to submit for publication.
