Course Overview

  • This course helps you understand the fundamentals and numerical aspects of CFD. 
  • The course is designed to help students understand the general solution approach to the Navier-Stokes equations.
  • Students will write code in MATLAB to solve simplified NS equations concentrating on one phenomenon at a time (Convection and Diffusion).
  • In the latter part of the course, students will work on OpenFOAM simulating standard CFD problems which gives them hands-on experience.
  • By the end of this course, students would have built strong CFD fundamentals to venture into solving more complicated CFD problems.
