The course gives an introduction to heat and flow simulation. The main program used in the course will be flow simulation from SolidWorks software. The course include lessons and exercises with tutorials on model preparation and creation of a flow simulation project. Key elements are: Meshing and thin wall optimization, electric cooling, transient heat transfer, two and three dimensional flow, conjugate heat transfer, rotating reference frames, cavitation, and load transfer from fluid analysis into stress analysis (Finite element analysis).
Having finished the course, the student shall be able to utilize modern computer simulation tools to simulate and predict heat and flow transfer.
Lectures, simulation tutorials and solving exercise
Teachers are availble in the course period by e-mail.
Flow simulation software tutorial and handouts.
MATH 111 - Calculus 1, MATH 112 - Calculus 2, FYS 101 - Mechanics, FYS 102 - Termophysics og electromagnetism, or similars
FYS251 - Heat transfer and energy, TMP160 - Technical design (SolidWorks).
Compulsory exercises and an individual project report involving simulating a unit operation. Examples of projects are: Simulation of a dryer, a cooler, a cyclone, a heat exchanger, a mixer, a freezing room, flows in pipes or valves, pneumatic transport of particles, porous media like membranes, etc.
The students are evaluated on basis of having passed mandatory exercises and the quality of their final project report.
