[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.
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.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
For each topic, its fundamentals are taught, and subsequently, exercises on computer are conducted to enhance understanding and ability to apply fundamental knowledge to model flow phenomena for engineering purposes.
|Course schedule||Required learning|
|Class 1||Introduction to computational fluid dynamics||To explain governing equations and discretization schemes.|
|Class 2||Computational domain, mesh, physical properties, model, Reynolds number, boundary conditions, solution procedures, analysis||To explain work flow of CFD simulations.|
|Class 3||Laminar and turbulent flow in a pipe||To conduct CFD simulations of laminar and turbulent flow.|
|Class 4||Flow of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids in a pipe||To conduct CFD simulations of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids flow.|
|Class 5||Boundary layer over flat plate||To conduct CFD simulations of boundary layer flow over flat plate.|
|Class 6||Thermal and concentration boundary layers over flat plate||To conduct CFD simulations of thermal and concentration boundary layer flow over flat plate.|
|Class 7||Fluid resistance force on sphere||To predict settling velocity of shpere in cylinder by CFD simulation.|
To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Textbook is distributed in the class.
