• Aquire a knowledge on the numerical methods for solving coupled and heterogeneous non-linear problems, methods for interface tracking (free surface flows) and discrete element methods (DEM) for modeling the granular microstructure.
• Aquire a knowledge of the state of the art models of turbulence (RANS / LES / DNS) and models for particulate transport (passive scalar and two-phase flow).
• Aquire a knowledge on how to set-up an advanced simulation tool for solving problems in mechanics and control the quality of the resulting solution.
During this module, students will have twenty hours on the following themes:
• Numerical methods for nonlinear coupled, heterogeneous problems, interface tracking and discrete element method
• Models and simulation of turbulence
• Models for particles transport / sediment (passive scalar and two-phase flow)
Students will have to perform a simulation project supervised by a tutor (about 30 hours). Each group will have to make a different topic and all the projects will cover the range of methods and models presented during the lectures. The evaluation will be achieved ??by a report and a public defense. During these defenses, the students will present their work and highlight the problems encountered and the solutions tested to solve them.Prerequisites
