Computational Fluid Dynamics II
January 30 - February 3, 2023.

(a PhD course from the JM Burgerscentrum)
Teachers: C. Vuik and F.J. Vermolen

Subjects: Finite element methods for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and iterative solution methods.

Finite element methods for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations
A short introduction to the finite element method is given. The following fluid flow applications are used: Poisson equation, convection-diffusion equation and the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Subjects studied in more detail are: (streamline) upwind methods, problems originating from the incompressibility condition, and the linearisation of convective terms in the Navier-Stokes equations. Some remarks are given on time-dependent problems.

Iterative solution methods.
The solution of systems of linear equations. The main part of the course is devoted to modern iterative methods. Furthermore the following related topics are considered:
As applications systems are used which originate from fluid flow problems.

The Grid is an emerging infrastructure that will fundamentally change the way we think about - and use - computing. The Grid will connect multiple regional and national computational grids to create a universal source of computing power. A computational grid is a hardware and software infrastructure that provides dependable, consistent, pervasive, and inexpensive access to high-end computational capabilities.
