Course Description

This course give an overview of the fundamentals of numerical methods used in engineering related to energy systems such as CFD (computational fluid dynamics), Heat transfer, and structural analysis.  It gives a background on how to apply numerical methods in the design and testing of related equipment and other hardware. The main emphasis is on practical use of codes based on Finite Element/Volume methods for subsonic incompressible and compressible recirculating flows
