Physics B Flluid Dynmics module Spring Link to Auroral Forecast at the GI. Course Content: Fluid Dynamics deals with fluid motion. Basic properties and configurations place important constraints on the dynamics of the fluid.
Many instructors want to introduce CFD into their introductory junior-level fluid mechanics course, but cannot because it requires several hours of class time at the cost of displacement of other basic material. A simple but effective method is now available that has been used successfully at Penn State since Spring It requires minimal instructor preparation time and only about one class period. Namely, immediately after solving the Navier-Stokes equation analytically for simple flows such as Couette and Poiseuille flow, CFD is introduced as a modern tool for solving the same equations numerically.
