Abstract: Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has become an essential tool in analysis and design of thermal and fluid flow systems in wide range of industries. Few prominent areas of applications of CFD include meteorology, transport systems (aerospace, automobile, highspeed trains), energy systems, environment, electronics, bio'medical (design of lifesupport and drug delivery systems), etc.
The correct use of CFD as a design analysis or diagnostic tool requires a thorough understanding of underlying physics, mathematical modeling and numerical techniques. The user must be fully aware of the properties and limitations of the numerical techniques incorporated in CFD software. This course aims to provide precisely these insights of CFD.
