Computational Fluid Mechanics National Taiwan University
This is an introductory course to computational methods for fluid dynamics. Following a preface to numerical simulation and a review of the governing equations for mass, momentum, and energy, the structure and mathematical behaviors of partial differential equations will be discussed, which are classified as hyperbolic, parabolic, and elliptic types. A discretization scheme to approximate the mathematical models, the finite-difference method, is described along with the analyses for the resulting errors and stability, followed by strategies of allocation and transformation of grids. Some simple CFD techniques will then be illustrated, in terms of various schemes suited for different categories of PDE's. Various methods of discretization other than the finite-difference approach, such as finite-volume method and finite-element method, shall be briefly mentioned if time is available.
