Course Registration

All students need to be registered for the course (both Master's and PhD students). If the registration is not possible online, please send an email to student@mech.kth.se. More information can be found here.

Course plan

  • Lectures covering (i) modelling and approximations, (ii) turbulence scales and modelling and (iii) grid design as well as quality and best practice. During the lectures a home assignment will be made in three steps (see examination).
  • Individual task simulating wake flow.
  • Invited speakers presenting commercial and/or research CFD packages.
  • One day introduction and hands-on practice in one commercial or research CFD package including grid generation, computation and data analysis.
  • Information how to utilize the supercomputing facility at KTH (PDC).
  • Solve one selected industrial or research problem in a project group of three students. This includes to define and perform a complete CFD analysis, analyze the quality and trust in the results and to do some parametric study. The project will be reported and presented at a seminar in the end of the course.
