MAE 4230 - Intermediate Fluid Dynamics

Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: MAE 3230  or CEE 3310 /BEE 3310 , CHEME 3230  or permission of instructor.  Satisfies Senior Design requirement if enrolled in MAE 4231 . Co-meets with MAE 4231 /MAE 5230 .

O. Desjardins.

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.

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.
