Short-Course Overview

The lectures in the first week of the short course will focus on the fundamental concepts and advanced topics in computational fluid mechanics. The fundamental concepts covered will include a review of the fluid mechanics equations, numerical boundary conditions, spatial discretization and the finite element method, time-integration techniques, iterative solution techniques, and mesh generation. The advanced topics will include the stabilized formulations (such as the SUPG and PSPG methods) for incompressible flows, compressible flows, reaction-dominated flows, RANS turbulence models, and turbomachinery flows. The first week will give the participants the knowledge they need to follow the topics to be covered in the second week. Those who believe that they already have sufficient knowledge of the concepts and topics covered in the first week can directly go to the second week. The lectures in the second week will focus on the fundamental concepts and advanced topics in computational fluid–structure interaction (FSI). The fundamental concepts will include the stabilized formulations, ALE method and ALE-VMS technique, space–time method and space–time-VMS technique, mesh update methods for flows with moving boundaries and interfaces, introductory computational structural mechanics, FSI coupling techniques and iterative methods, isogeometric analysis, and parallel computing concepts. The advanced topics are the space–time computational FSI techniques and the ALE-VMS computational FSI techniques. The topics to be covered include the core technologies and the special techniques targeting specific classes of problems.
