The CFD techniques for approximately solving the flow and heat transfer problems rely on three major discretization methods, i.e. finite difference (FDM), finite volume (FVM) and finite element (FEM). The latter two constitute the theme of this course.
Aim of the Course
To provide detailed theoretical background with examples on applications of finite element and finite-volume methods to solve heat transfer as well as fluid flow problems.
Topics to be covered
- Introduction to Finite Volume Method: review of continuum equations and illustrations of heat conduction and convection-diffusion problems
- Introduction to Finite Element Method: method of weighted residuals, gradient, divergence and Green-Gauss theorems, strong and weak or variational forms
- Shape and weight functions, connectivity array and implementation of specified, natural, convective boundary conditions
- Concepts of Galerkin and PetrovGalerkin formulations
- Numerical integration to find the entries of element matrices, vectors
- Assembled matrix formation for single and multiple degrees-of freedom
- Solution of assembled matrix equation system
- Illustration with complete solution of Poisson equation for heat conduction in two-dimensions, convection diffusion equation in one-dimension using linear and quadratic elements
- Discretization of two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations using coupled formulation, LBB condition, staggered and collocated arrangement, stabilization against velocity and pressure oscillations
- Step by step illustration of global matrix-vector formation using stabilized FEM on collocated mesh for two-dimensional lid-driven cavity
- Structured mesh generation using Fortran programming, illustration of solved problems on flow and heat transfer
