Summary on Grant Application Form
The objective of the proposed summer school is to address the needs identified in the EPSRC call for summer schools on Mathematics for Engineers through the provision of a novel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) course. This course will provide understanding of the mathematical foundation and focus on a detailed overview of the physical models necessary for research in Chemical, Civil and Environmental and Mechanical Engineering amongst other fields of engineering and science. The course will prepare future users of CFD to make the best possible usage of the available technology through an emphasis on fluid mechanics and potential applications of the constitutive models as well as the understanding of the mathematical foundations. Each key topic will be taught by a recognised expert in the field, with a first week focussing on numerical techniques and general issues followed by a second week covering specialist topics such as turbulence and aerodynamics, multiphase flow, flow combustion and radiation, reactive flow and chemical process industry applications and combustion and radiation. Two thirds of the course will be lecture based, and the remaining third will be hands-on practicals using popular commercial CFD codes. The course will build on the experience gained at the University of Nottingham with its Applied CFD course and the CFD@Nottingham Seminar and Lecture Series. The University of Nottingham breadth of researchers, with track records in theory and applications, makes the proposed course particularly novel.
