22.315 Applied Computational Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer

3-0-9 H-Level Grad Credit
Tuesday, Thursday 1:00PM–2:30PM in 24-121
Prerequisites: Permission of instructor
Instructor: Professor Emilio Baglietto emiliob@mit.edu

Course description
Focuses on the application of computational fluid dynamics to the analysis of power generation and propulsion systems, and on industrial and chemical processes in general. Discusses simulation methods for single and multiphase applications and their advantages and limitations in industrial situations. Students practice breaking down an industrial problem into its modeling challenges, designing and implementing a plan to optimize and validate the modeling approach, performing the analysis, and quantifying the uncertainty margin.
