Summary

 

Course/Module

Teacher, Turbulence and Turbulence Modelling (A3/412), Part 2 Mathematics tutorials. (Undergraduate)

Navier Stokes Equations and Turbulence Modelling - AEM-ADV13

Aims

The overall aim is for students to gain an appreciation of the physics of turbulence phenomena in engineering flows and how they are modelled and simulated by means of computational techniques applied to the Navier-Stokes equations. This entails an appreciation of three elements: turbulence as a non-linear and non-locall physical phenomenon, statistical modelling of turbulence that enables the computation of time-averaged solutions, and the simulation of time-evolving turbulent flows as solutions of coarse-grained model equations or as fully resolved solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations.

Role

Lecturer

Introduction to Turbulence and Turbulence Modelling - AE3-412

Aims

The course aims at providing the student with a minimum background knowledge and physical understanding necessary for the critical assessment of turbulent models which the student is very likely to be confronted with in subsequent courses and in industry.
