Aerodynamic Simulation Course

Aerodynamic Simulation is a junior year course handled by Dr. Mark Turner which introduces the students to the basic theory behind Aerodynamics and exposes them to simulating typical problems using the commercial code STAR-CCM+. A part of the course deals with concepts of Numerical methods such as Numerical Integration, Interpolation, Iterative method of solving Matrices, Discrete Fourier Transforms and basic concepts of Finite Volume method.

Parallelly, the students are provided with multiple short instructional video tutorials on STAR-CCM+ which demonstrates a step-by-step procedure for successfully solving various 2D and 3D fluid flow problems. At the end of the course, a final class project is carried out by students in teams wherein they choose their desired problem and carry out a fluid flow simulation based on the knowledge gained out of the course.
