Computational Fluid Dynamics

NPTEL and Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee via YouTube

Overview

Instructor: Dr. Krishna M. Singh, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, IIT Roorkee.

This course looks at all the aspects theoretical, numerical, and application aspects of computational fluid dynamics. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has become an essential tool in the analysis and design of thermal and fluid flow systems in a wide range of industries. Few prominent areas of applications of CFD include meteorology, transport systems (aerospace, automobile, high-speed trains), energy systems, environment, electronics, biomedical (design of life support and drug delivery systems), etc.

The correct use of CFD as a design analysis or diagnostic tool requires a thorough understanding of underlying physics, mathematical modeling and numerical techniques. The user must be fully aware of the properties and limitations of the numerical techniques incorporated in CFD software. This course aims to provide precisely these insights of CFD.
