MAE 4230

MAE 4230

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

This course builds on the foundation of MAE 3230. The lectures emphasize on the physics and mathematical analysis of the subject. Topics include incompressible flows, compressible flows, and computational fluid dynamics. As an integral part of the course, you will learn numerical method and how to use ANSYS/Fluent to solve flow problems. The students will develop problem-solving skills, through which to cultivate an appreciation for the rich and complex structure of fluids, and appreciation for fundamental ideas in fluid dynamics.

When Offered Spring.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: MAE 3230 or CEE 3310/BEE 3310, CHEME 3230 or permission of instructor.
