SESSION: Engineering: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
EVENT TYPE: Communities, Education
TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM
ABSTRACT: This workshop provides an overview of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and the types of physical systems that can be modeled. Fundamental terminology and concepts will be covered in this session. The process of building, solving and analyzing a CFD problem will be examined to highlight how the physical system is discretized into a numerical model. Participants will use several Java applets to solve typical computational fluid dynamics problems and learn about the type of numerical results that can be obtained.
