DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
AIMS - intentions of the module
The aim of the module is to extend the practical understanding of FE and CFD packages and to complement this with an understanding of numerical and modelling issues Students will study the theoretical aspects of numerical simulation through directed study and interaction in tutorials, and will continue to develop their modelling skills through project work, on topics decided in discussion with the lecturers.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)
SYLLABUS PLAN - summary of the structure and academic content of the module
The module content is intended to be flexible to reflect changes from year to year in current research activity, particularly through a programme of guest speakers. A typical syllabus would contain the following: Numerical techniques for solving important PDE's in heat transfer, fluid flow, elasticity and other areas. Numerics for CFD: FV method, differencing schemes, solution algorithms, matrix inversion. Turbulence modelling: derivation of k-e model, comparison with Reynolds Stress and LES methods. Combustion: premixed, non-premixed combustion, combustion regimes. Models for combustion: laminar flamelet models. Multiphase flow: dispersed and free-surface flows. Algebraic slip models and VOF. Numerics for FE: revision of the FE MethodLarge displacement analysis. Modelling of visco-elastic materials. Modelling the yield and subsequent large strain behaviour of materials. Modelling the dynamic behaviour of structures using the FE method.
