MEE 463 - Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics


The course is designed for students with no or little computational fluid dynamics (CFD) knowledge who want to learn CFD application to solve mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering problems.  The course provides an introduction to the theoretical fundamentals as well as the use of commercial CFD codes to analyze flow and heat transfer in practical engineering problems.  The students will understand the process of developing a geometrical model of the flow, applying appropriate boundary conditions, specifying solution parameters and visualizing the results.  They will also learn to assess the accuracy of CFD solutions.

Prerequisites: MEE 360 or equivalent

Course Typically Offered: Spring

Credits: 3
