AE 498 CFO - Applied CFD

Last offered Fall 2022

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in aerospace engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or department course information for topics and prerequisite. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary to a maximum of 9 undergraduate hours or 12 graduate hours.

Section Description

This course provides an introduction to the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to solve fluid dynamics problems relevant to aerospace engineering. Instruction on the end-to-end workflow, including geometry definition, grid generation, solver selection, solver execution, and solution analysis will be given. Emphasis will be placed on ensuring solution accuracy through verification and validation. Students will be given access to CFD codes and will predict the aerodynamic behavior of several different flow configurations; both low-speed and high-speed applications will be examined. Prerequisites: AE 311, AE 312, AE 370 or their equivalents. Prereq: AE 321 and 323 or equivalent, or Instructor Consent Restricted to online non-degree, online MCS, online MSME, online MSCEE, and online MSAE students. For more details on this course section, please see http://engineering.illinois.edu/online/courses/. Non-Degree students may enroll on a space-available basis with consent of Program Co
