Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

students carry out simple simulations of basic technical problems concerning fluid mechanics and heat transport, verify them and predict their application limits

Teaching methods



The aim of the course is to familiarize students with basic concepts of flow modeling and CFD simulation using ANSYS Fluent 12.1.4 software or COMSOL Multiphysics. After completing the course students should be able to independently create simple simulations of basic technical problems in the field of fluid mechanics and heat sharing.

Compulsory literature:


Recommended literature:


Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

modeling of basic CFD problems
