Derivation of the partial differential equations of thermal fluids (heat conduction, Navier-Stokes, continuity, and thermal convection/diffusion equation). Introduction to the finite-difference, finite-volume, and finite-element techniques as applied to numerical solution of these equations. Use of a commercial CFD package to analyze common fluid flow and heat transfer configurations. Course also offered at the graduate level as 22.546.
