The course teaches the basics of computational fluid dynamics. The fundamental aerodynamic mechanisms considered in this course can be transferred to the simulation of turbomachinery, aircraft, and biomedical applications. Methods to discretize the partial differential equations and to solve the associated system of equations will be introduced and analyzed. To this end, various methods to analyze the stability of numerical schemes and different sources of errors will be investigated. Finally, different models for the simulation of turbulent and transitional flows will be discussed.
