Numerische Methoden der Thermofluiddynamik - Übung



Time and place:

  • Thu 10:15-11:45, Room 02.224 Cauerstr.9

Fields of study

  • WPF CE-MA-TA-TFD from SEM 7
  • WPF MB-MA-FG9 from SEM 1
  • WPF CBI-MA from SEM 1
  • WPF CEN-MA from SEM 1
  • WPF LSE-MA from SEM 1
  • PF MAP-S-CMP from SEM 3


The theory given in the lectures is extended and applied to several transport problems in this exercise class:

  • discretization of the Blasius similarity equations

  • parabolization and discretization of the boundary layer equations

  • finite-Difference discretization of heat-transfer problems

  • approximation of boundary conditions

  • finite-Volume discretization of heat-transfer problems

  • discretization and time-stepping of the Navier-Stokes equations

  • projections methods: the SIMPLE and PISO Methods

The students who successfully solve the exercises should:
  • be able to discretize transport problems with the finite-difference and the finite-volume methods

  • discretize several type of boundary conditions (no-slip, flux, mixed)

  • understand how the implementation of projection methods to solve the Navier-Stokes equation is done

  • work in team
