Course Description:
Simulations for flows and thermal issues 1 - 4EUS3SF1 Goals Know the principles implemented in commercial flow simulation codes for incompressible aerodynamics (essentially hydrodynamic) / conventional configurations. Know the best practices for using these codes (or at least a representative commercial code) Awareness of the use of non-commercial codes through the simulation of compressible flows quasi-1D. Contact Guillaume BALARAC Content Course and exercices: • principles and implementation of the finite volume approach for the solution of Euler and Navier-Stokes compressible and incompressible operations • Analysis Tools of discretization schemes: accuracy, stability, efficiency Practical work: • Validation & Verification process for non-viscous laminar and turbulent conventional aerodynamic flows, (only RANS approach) hydrodynamic / (single-phase flows, Newtonian fluid equations usual condition - constant density, ideal gas) • analyzed configurations, linkages to postprocessing: pitot / Venturi, viscometer, flow over flat plate, cylinder, Profile, laminar and turbulent jets, incompressible pipe flow, compressible flow through a nozzle • openness to the coupling flow / thermal (natural convection) Prerequisites Bases on discretization of partial differential equations (course "Numerical Methods" of 1st Year) ABOUT US STUDIES RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES STUDENT LIFE Number of hours Lectures : 24.0 Tutorials : 10.0 Laboratory works : 26.0 ECTS : 5.0 Page 1 × Tests Exam of 2h for verifying the individual acquisition of key concepts and mastery of analysis (order of accuracy, stability, efficiency) tools. Project Report: analysis independently, using a commercial CFD code, a non-treated BE but replicating the methodologies applied to cases dealt with in the training flow configuration. 50% DS + 50% CC Additional Information Course list Curriculum->Engineer ME->Semester 3 VERSION FRANÇAISE Voir la version française de cette page Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Energie, l'Eau et l'Environnement 21 avenue des Martyrs CS 90624 38031 GRENOBLE CEDEX 1 To improve the quality of this site and the service rendered to the user, we use cookies audience measurement.
