MAE 4231 - Intermediate Fluid Dynamics

Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MAE 3230  or CEE 3310 /BEE 3310 , CHEME 3230 . Prerequisite or corequisite MAE 4300 , or permission of instructor. Enrollment limited to: senior standing or permission of instructor. Fulfills Senior Design requirement. Co-meets with MAE 4230 /MAE 5230 .

Z. J. Wang.

This course builds on the foundation of MAE 3230 . Emphasis is placed on both the fundamental principles and numerical calculation of real flows using a computational fluid dynamics package. Topics covered include inviscid and viscous flows at different regimes of Reynolds number. The examples will be related to engineering and environmental applications. Senior Design report required.

Outcome 1: Students will understand the derivation and physical meaning of the conservation equations.

Outcome 2: Be able to derive analytical solutions to simplified problems.

Outcome 3: Understand the underlying models in ANSYS/FLUENT.

Outcome 4: Be able to apply ANSYS/FLUENT to solve a range of problems.

Outcome 5: Understand numerical errors and the limitations of CFD.

Outcome 6: Demonstrate the ability to design a component using CFD analysis in ANSYS/FLUENT.
