Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will become familiar with the possibilities of simulation of turbulent flow of fluids in various fields of engineering, civil engineering, aviation, metallurgy and other areas where there are equipment and machinery, which contain liquid. They create 2D and 3D CFD models of real devices in an ANSYS-Fluent. When creating a geometric model, students will build on previous knowledge of drawing in higher CAD systems. Students will analyse the assignment of tasks solved in the basic knowledge acquired in the course Fluid Mechanics. They will solve the CFD simulation by different models of turbulence in applications of airflow around the body, heat transfer, the interaction of two different fluids. Students will interpret the results of simulations and analyse the flow.

Teaching methods



The subject is focused on modeling possibilities of turbulent fluid flow in different areas of mechanical engineering, civil engineering, aviation, metallurgy and other fields, where there are devices and machines that contain fluid, or use it for their activities. The finite volume method (MKO) will be used to solve the system of flow equations. They will be created during the lessons 2D and 3D CFD models of real equipment in ANSYS Fluent. In the course of education, the program DesignModeler will be used to create geometry and the program ANSYS Meshing will be used to create a computational grid.
