Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The activities of the course are divided into two parts. The first part consists of a number of seminars that emphasise a number of subfields in the field and a number of laboratory sessions that focus on different computational techniques and software tools. The other part of the course is focused on a project defined by the student where the technologies and the tools from the first part of the course are applied on a problem in fluid dynamics.

Intended learning outcomes *

After the course, the student should (i) have an understanding of theory behind efficient calculation methods for computer simulation in fluid mechanics with a focus on adaptive finite element methods (FEM) for incompressible flow as well as (ii) an ability to use these calculation methods to solve problems in fluid mechanics. Research challenges in the field are emphasised, e g with regard to turbulent flow.

Ethical approach *

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
