Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of fluid mechanics
Target skills and knowledge: Fundamental knowledge and Methods for the analysis of flows for engineering applications.
Main models and computational techniques for fluid machinery.
Ability in the selection of optimal fluid dynamics models for engineering problems.
Examination methods: Oral exam. It concerns the discussion of a project of applied fluid dynamics and questions on theoretical aspects and modeling for engineering applications.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation is based on the comprehension of theoretical aspects, proposed methodologies and on the ability to solve engineering problems.
Course unit contents: Navier-Stokes equations for compressible and incompressible viscous flows. Potential theory for incompressible and compressible flows. Panel method for the solution of inviscid flow problems.
Boundary layer: thickness, differential and integral equations. Effect of pressure gradient. Methodologies to couple outer and inner solutions: Xfoil tool.
Turbulent flows: average equations and closure problems. Fundamentals of turbulence theory. Turbulence modeling: Rans model at 1- 2- and 5- equations; LES modeling; DES models; DNS approach.
Discretization techniques. Finite elements, finite differences and finite volumes. Fundamentals of numerical fluid dynamics. Solution of the pressure problem in incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Commercial and in-house practice to solve fluid dynamics problems.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Besides the textbooks, additional notes will be provided.
