Learning objectives
  • Gaining insight into the concepts and numerical methods for the solution of flow and plasma problems;
  • Gaining an understanding on the basic physics of gases, fluids and plasmas;
  • Training and enhancing the modeling ability on fluid dynamics and particle based processes;
  • Application of advanced numerical methods to physical systems.
Content
The course provides an introduction to advanced computational methods useful to investigate fluid and plasma flows and their dynamics from the micro- to the macro-scales, under laminar and turbulent flow regime. The course presents an overview of several key complementary computational methods.

  • Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM);
  • (pseudo)-spectral methods;
  • Particle based methods (Molecular Dynamics, Brownian and Stokesian dynamics);
  • Finite volume methods;
  • Particle-in-cell Monte Carlo (PIC-MC).

Short promotional description of the course
Dit vak leidt studenten naar de hands-on ontdekking van verschillende klassieke numerieke methoden die vaak gebruikt worden om de dynamica van vloeistoffen, gassen en plasma’s te bestuderen: van continuum computational fluid dynamics (CFD) aanpakken (Spectraal en eindige volumes), tot Lattice Boltzamann (LBM), op deeltjes gebaseerde methodes (Molecular Dynamics, Browse en Stokesiaanse dynamica) en deeltjes-in-cel Monte Carlo (PIC-MC).
