Course description and aims

[Summary of the course] The course teaches practices of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) by using the latest CFD code on computer.
[Aim of the course] The course aims that student will develop their skills to practically solve problems, of basic flow patterns, whose analytical solution or correlation is available, an industrial-level problem, and finally an academic-level problem found in a recent paper in peer-reviewed journals.

Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to:
(1) Create computational domain and mesh for modeling of flow phenomena to be useful for engineering purposes.
(2) Balance computational cost and accuracy of simulation.
(3) Conduct CFD simulation of flow involving mass and heat transport.
(4) Interpret the results of CFD simulations and apply the results to engineering purposes.
