Computational Fluid Dynamics and Hydrodynamics JEE509

Launceston

Note:

Introduction

This unit introduces students to maritime hydrodynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics to solve hydrodynamics problems.    On successful completion of the unit, students should be able to:

  • Develop and apply the mathematical formulation of the basic laws governing laminar, turbulent fluid flow and heat transfer.
  • Explain the various approaches and techniques utilised in CFD.
  • Develop appropriate mesh domains for CFD investigations into typical maritime vehicles, structures, and systems to obtain accurate and stable simulations.
  • Solve and refine steady state and transient flow problems relevant to maritime engineering involving turbulence, using commercial CFD packages.
  • Critically analyse the results using relevant theory and experimental data to obtain and explain the hydrodynamic and thermodynamic coefficients and characteristics of marine vehicles, structures, and systems.

Note

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.
