Numerical methods for the solution of flow, heat & mass transfer problems are presented and illustrated by analytical & computer exercises.
Knowledge of and practical experience with discretization and solution methods for computational fluid dynamics and heat and mass transfer problems
- Introduction with application examples, steps to a numerical solution - Classification of PDEs, application examples - Finite differences - Finite volumes - Method of weighted residuals, spectral methods, finite elements - Stability analysis, consistency, convergence - Numerical solution methods, linear solvers The learning materials are illustrated with practical examples.
Slides to be completed during the lecture will be handed out.
References are provided during the lecture. Notes in close agreement with the lecture material are available (in German).
Prerequisites / Notice
Basic knowledge in fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and programming (lecture: "Models, Algorithms and Data: Introduction to Computing")
Performance assessment information (valid until the course unit is held again)
The performance assessment is only offered in the session after the course unit. Repetition only possible after re-enrolling.
Mode of examination
written 120 minutes
Additional information on mode of examination
To learn the material, it is helpful to solve the analytical and programming exercises. Successfully solving the exercises will be rewarded, in the context of a voluntary continuous performance assessment, with a quarter-grade bonus. A student who successfully and individually solves (= 50% correct) two out of three arbitrarily picked (from all) exercise sets receives the bonus. Solutions will be collected at the beginning of the exercise class.
A dictionary English-... and in the application part additionally a 4 page (2 sheets) A4 summary are the only two permissible aids.
This information can be updated until the beginning of the semester; information on the examination timetable is binding.
