This course is intended for seniors and beginning graduate students interested in computer based analysis of engineering problems in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Students need not have a graduate level background in fluid mechanics or heat transfer, however, an undergraduate level is necessary. The general governing equations of fluid mechanics and heat transfer and methods to solve them, that will mainly focus on finite-difference and finite-volume methods. Topics on the classification and analysis of these methods are examined with application to conduction heat transfer, convection and laminar mixing problems. The overall objective of this course is to provide the student with a firm understanding of the fundamentals of CFD employed in many commercial packages and an introduction to computer tools for analysis and graphical representation of results.
