Modeling and Simulation of Multi-Physics Systems Course

This course serves as an introduction to modeling and simulation of multi-physics systems. Many real-world engineering problems require multi-physics analysis, such as fluid-structure interaction, vibro-acoustics, aeroacoustics and thermal-fluid coupling. Students will learn how multi-physics problems are modelled and simulated by using commercial simulation software package in this course. A set of selected multi-physics problems will be studied to learn how to model the system, obtain computational solutions and interpret the results to extract necessary engineering design information. Fundamentals of fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, acoustics and vibration will be discussed in relation to one another in the context of each multi-physics problem.
