For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Students Experiencing Academic Disadvantage Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Description, Subject Objectives, Generic Skills and Assessment Requirements of this entry.
This subject provides presents fundamental numerical techniques relevant to the simulation of fluid flow and heat/mass transfer. It will give students an understanding of common numerical methods operating “under the hood” in Computational Fluid Dynamics software, and will provide students with an introductory basis for writing computer code to implement such numerical procedures.
Ordinary Differential Equations: explicit and implicit methods, stability, systems of ODEs, boundary value problems, MATLAB. Partial Differential Equations: overview, types of equations, boundary conditions, convection-diffusion equations, differencing schemes, finite volume method, stability - von Neumann analysis, error analysis - dispersion, diffusion errors, solving Laplace and Poisson equations, methods for solving Navier-Stokes equations. OpenFoam: fundamentals of OpenFoam - examples, solving simple 2D problems, Laplace and Poisson equations with OpenFoam, solving complex 2D fluid flow problems. C and C++ programming.

LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
The subject will be delivered through a combination of lectures and workshops. Students will also complete two assignments which will reinforce the material covered in lectures.
INDICATIVE KEY LEARNING RESOURCES
Students will have access to lecture material, computing resources, and Computational Fluid Dynamics software. The subject LMS site also contains example MATLAB and C computer code, and worked solutions, relevant to the workshops.
CAREERS / INDUSTRY LINKS
One assignment will involve the use of the Computational Fluid Dynamics software in an engineering context.
