SDBE 605 CFD Applications in the Built Environment
Department: PhD : Architecture and Sustainable Built Environment
Module Description: In this module the students will learn the fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) including the governing equations, laminar and turbulent flow, steady and unsteady flows, turbulence modelling, discretization & meshing, types and application of boundary conditions, and the different types of convection heat transfer (natural, mixed and forced). The students will also learn how to use CFD to model internal and external fluid and heat flow as applied to different scenarios in the built environment. One or more commercial CFD packages will be used, e.g. ANSYS, Phoenics, Envimet.
