Course 2011-F at GRS, RWTH Aachen
German Research School for Simulation Sciences (GRS), RWTH Aachen,
||2011, Monday Sep. 26, 10:00 - Friday Sep. 30, 15:00
||Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
The course deals with current numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics.
The emphasis is placed on explicit finite volume methods for the compressible Euler equations.
Moreover outlooks on implicit methods, the extension to the Navier-Stokes equations and
turbulence modelling are given. Additional topics are classical numerical methods for
the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, Aeracoustics and high order
numerical methods for the solution of systems of partial differential equations.
The last day is dedicated to parallelization of explicit and implicit solvers.
Hands-on sessions will manifest the contents of the lectures.
The emphasis of these session is put on the application of CFD codes,
especially on grid generation, visualization and the interpretation of results.
Furthermore the implementation of algorithms presented in the lectures points up
the general structure of CFD codes.
The course is developed by the HLRS,
the Institute of Aerodynamics and Gasdynamics (IAG, University of Stuttgart),
the University of Kassel,
the German Research School for Simulation Sciences (GRS, RWTH Aachen), and
the Institute of Aerodynamics (AIA, RWTH Aachen).
It is based on the course "Numerical Gasdynamics" held at the IAG which has been awarded the
"Landeslehrpreis (prize for excellence in teaching) Baden-Württemberg 2003"
(held at Uni. Stuttgart, under auspices of the BMBF project
The course is organized by GRS and AIA, RWTH Aachen.

|| If you cannot come to the course, please
send an email to the organizer as soon as possible.
This would allow us to accept additional participants
from the waiting-list. There is no cancelation fee.
Registered persons that do not cancel and do not show up without any
reasons are blocked for the next year on any of our workshops
(because it is to expensive to produce unused copies of the slides
|| maximum of
42 participants in Stuttgart and Kassel,
35 in Dresden and Aachen,
34 in Garching,
26 in Jülich,
20 an der TUHH
(according to the seats in the rooms).
|| Each participant will get a paper copy of all slides.
The MPI-1 part of the course is based on the MPI course developed by the
Training and Education Centre,
Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.
If you want, you may also buy copies of the standards
MPI-2.2 (Hardcover, 17 Euro) and OpenMP 3.0 (about 8 Euro).
Most material of the course (including the audio information)
can also be viewed in the
ONLINE Parallel Programming Workshop.
