Numerische Methoden der Thermofluiddynamik - Praktikum



Time and place

  • Mon 10:00-12:00, Room EE 0.135 (exclude vac) ICS

Prerequisites / Organizational information

Since the course NMTFD1 is part of the international program Computational Engineering, lectures, exercises and practical training will be given online until further notice.

Hereby students who are currently still located in their home country due to the pandemic situation are able to follow the course.

Further details will be given during the first lecture on 19.10.2021 (16:15-17:45). This lecture will be organized via Zoom.

The theory given in the lectures and applied in the exercise class is implemented into computer programs in this practical class. The following problems are solved with matlab/octave programs: - the Blasius-similarity equations - heat-transfer problems - boundary layer equations - flow of fluid in a lid-driven cavity The students who successfully complete this practical class should: - be able to write matlab/octave problems solving transport problems - understand the convergence and accuracy of a method in practical situations - write a program to solve the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations - work in team and write reports describing the results and significance of a simulation (erwartete Hörerzahl original: 30, fixe Veranstaltung: nein)
