Models and applications in CFD

Course Type: 
PhD Course
Academic Year: 
20 h

The course refers to the use of computational fluid dynamics techniques to address advanced applications in environmental, cardiovascular and industrial contexts. Each topic will be corroborated by a set of numerical examples to be performed within the open source C++ finite volume library OpenFOAM.
