Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Objective:    

Students who complete the module:

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Shall have knowledge on how problems concerning complex process and flow structures can be approached numerically.
  • Shall have knowledge on numerical errors, stability and accuracy of computational fluid dynamic models. 
  • Shall have knowledge on how result data can be represented graphically static and dynamically.

Skills

  • Be able to set up a computational fluid dynamic model for a simple and more complex laminar and turbulent flows.
  • Be able to choose appropriate boundary condition for the model.
  • Be able to calibrate and validate models and interpret results.
  • Be able to represent data in time and space based on data generated by field measurements or numerical models.
  • Data animation.

Competences

  • To structure, simulate and interpret numerical fluid models.
  • To structure and produce documentation of complex problems.

Type of instruction

Lectures, etc. supplemented with project work, workshops, presentation seminars, lab tests.

Extent and expected workload
