The development of high speed digital computers has had a great impact on the way principles from sciences of fluid mechanics and heat transfer are applied to problems of design in modern engineering practice. Therefore, there is a growing demand to find graduating engineers with the basic skill of computational methods for heat transfer, mass transfer and fluid dynamics. The objective of this course is to provide the participants an introduction to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) which would help them to write their own CFD programs as well as use commercial CFD codes successfully. The specific objectives to achieve through this short term course are to provide a practical approach to solving fluid flow and/or heat transfer problems of engineering nature. COURSE CONTENT ?
