DD2365 VT22 Advanced Computation in Fluid Mechanics (aflum22)

DD2365 VT22 Advanced Computation in Fluid Mechanics (aflum22)

The goal of the course is to develop an understanding for computational methods in fluid mechanics, with a focus on adaptive finite element methods and how to apply these computational methods to real world fluid mechanics problems. Research challenges in the field are highlighted, e.g. with respect to high performance computing and simulation of turbulent flow. The first part of the course presents a theoretical background and gives an introduction to computational tools, which are used in the second part of the course focused on project work. 

DD2365 is a conditionally elective course for the Scientific Computing track (CSSC) of the Master's programme in Computer Science. FDD3371 is a course on doctoral level (third cycle).
