Calculating Turbulent Flows with CFD-Codes

Additional Info

  • ECTS credits: 3
  • University: Vienna University of Technology
  • Semester: 3
  • Objectives:


    The aim of this course is an introduction to the application of CFD programs for the calculation of simple turbulent flows. This course will provide a basis for the further processing of projects using CFD methods and will be jointly supervised by representatives of various working groups using CFD methods. Therefore, an introduction to various CFD programs (FLUENT, CCM +, OpenFOAM) is also given.

  • Topics:


    Application and comparison commercial CFD program (FLUENT, CCM +) with an open source software program (OpenFOAM) in the calculation of (turbulent) flows. The effect of different turbulence models on the flow or heat transfer will be investigated and the results will be verified by data from the literature. Geometry creation, grid generation, adjustment and selection of flow models and parameters, turbulence models and wall treatment, presentation and interpretation of results.
