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 .

O. Desjardins.

This course builds on the foundation of MAE 3230 . The lectures emphasize on the physics and mathematical analysis of the subject. Topics include incompressible flows, compressible flows, and computational fluid dynamics. As an integral part of the course, you will learn numerical method and how to use ANSYS/Fluent to solve flow problems. The students will develop problem-solving skills, through which to cultivate an appreciation for the rich and complex structure of fluids, and appreciation for fundamental ideas in fluid dynamics.

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 methods and the limitations of CFD.

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