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:flow over flat plate, cylinder, Profile, laminar and turbulent jets, incompressible pipe flow,
• openness to the coupling flow / thermal (natural convection)


Bases on partial differential equations resolution (course "Numerical Methods" of 1st Year)
Bases on Fluid Mechanics


First session (If distant learning mandatory):
EN assessment: Exam of 2h for verifying the individual acquisition of key concepts and mastery of analysis (order of accuracy, stability, efficiency) tools.

ER assessment : 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.

Second session
EN assessment: Retaking this assessment is not possible

Moyenne de l'UE / Course Unit assessment = ER 50% + EN 50%


The course exists in the following branches:
