Numerische Methoden der Thermofluiddynamik - Praktikum



Time and place:

  • Mon 10:00-12:00, Room 00.153-113 CIP

Fields of study

  • WPF CBI-MA from SEM 1
  • WPF LSE-MA from SEM 1
  • WPF CEN-MA from SEM 1
  • WPF CE-MA-TA-TFD from SEM 1


The theory given in the lectures and applied in the exercise class is implemented into computer programs in this practical class.
The following problems are solved with matlab/octave programs:

  • the Blasius-similarity equations

  • heat-transfer problems

  • boundary layer equations

  • flow of fluid in a lid-driven cavity

The students who successfully complete this practical class should:
  • be able to write matlab/octave problems solving transport problems

  • understand the convergence and accuracy of a method in practical situations

  • write a program to solve the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations

  • work in team and write reports describing the results and significance of a simulation
