ME7153 Computational Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer

Credits: 3.00

The course centers on engineering solution of thermo-fluid problems by finite-difference methods, error and stability analyses, numerical dispersion and damping, matrix inversion methods, solution of model equations: wave, heat, Laplace, viscous and inviscid Burger’s equations. Also covered are implicit and explicit procedures, SOR, ADI, hopscotch and direct solvers for evaluating linear and nonlinear diffusion and convection problems.

Prerequisite: ME 6003 and ME 6043 or adviser approval.
