Numerical Solution of PDEs Using the Finite Element Method

Advanced course dedicated to the Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations through the deal.II Finite Element Library.


Advanced Topics in CFD

The course deals with a list of advanced topics in computational fluid dynamics. In the first part, the governing equations governing fluid dynamics problems are reviewed and derived. Both compressible and incompressible flows are considered. The basics of the finite volume methods for the numerical discretization of fluid dynamics problems are reviewed and discussed starting from the basic example of an advection-diffusion equation.

Topics in Continuum Mechanics

  • Reminders on linear algebra and tensor calculus
  • Kinematics of deformable bodies
  • Eulerian and Lagrangian descriptions of motion
  • Balance laws of continuum mechanics: conservation of mass, balance of linear and angular momentum, energy balance and dissipation inequality
  • Constitutive equations
  • Fluid dynamics: the Navier Stokes equations
  • Solid mechanics: nonlinear and linearized elasticity
  • Selected topics from the mechanics of biological systems
