Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics JEE480

Introduction

The design and analysis of engineering fluid systems and marine vehicles require the prediction of the fluid behaviour and the interaction between the fluid and the system. This requires a good knowledge of thermo-fluid dynamic principles and the behaviour under varying boundary and operational conditions. This unit introduces students to numerical methods used to solve applied maritime hydrodynamics, fluid dynamics and thermo-fluid dynamics problems. It includes the use of commercial CFD packages and the analysis of results and flow visualisation to investigate the flow and behaviour of the fluid system or marine vehicle. It builds on the knowledge gained in Fluid Dynamics and relevant mathematical concepts.

Note

Units are offered as On-campus where the majority of teaching will occur at the campus identified.  Units offered Off-campus generally have no requirement for attendance at a physical university campus unless the unit has practical or fieldwork components*:  the campus indicated for an Off-Campus unit is the one at which teaching is administered from.

*Please read the Unit Introduction in the Course and Unit Handbook for attendance requirements for units offered in Off-campus mode.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).

Unit census dates currently displaying for 2017 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2017 will be available from the 1st October 2016.
