Syllabus / Public content Section Term Instructor
ME 473 02 January 2017 Donald Bergstrom (primary instructor)


Introduces the student to the subject of Computational Fluid Dynamics, as well as numerical methods for predicting heat transfer. The course focuses on incompressible flow of a viscous fluid, including both diffusive and convective transport. Pressure solvers and turbulence models are also described. A comprehensive commercial CFD package is introduced to the students, as an example of the software used by engineers to perform numerical simulation of heat and fluid flow.
