AE 598 OCF - Special Topics - CFD for Incompressible Flow

Campus: Urbana-Champaign


Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in aerospace engineering intended to augment existing formal courses. Topics and prerequisites vary for each section. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for both. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary to a maximum of 12 hours.

Special Instructions:

This course will focus on finite volume methods for incompressible flows. The key topics of the course will be i) spatial discretization of the governing equations (which will include ideas such as the staggered-grid formulation, the adherence of discrete operators to discrete conservation laws, and the mimetic nature of certain operators), ii) time stepping applied within the differential-algebraic framework that characterizes the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations (which will include fractional-step approaches and their representation as a projection procedure), and iii) treatment of boundary conditions in 2D. Time permitting, these ideas will be combined within an immersed boundary setting to enable treatment of immersed bodies. Restricted to online non-degree, online MCS, online MSME, online MSCEE, and online MSAE students. For more details on this course section, please see http://engineering.illinois.edu/online/courses/. Non-Degree students may enroll on a space-available ba
