AE 598 MAF - Modal Analysis of Fluid Flow

Last offered Fall 2023

Official Description

Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in aerospace engineering intended to augment existing formal courses. Topics and prerequisites vary for each section. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for both. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary to a maximum of 12 hours.

Section Description

Students in this course will learn to apply modal analysis techniques to represent multi-scale velocity data. Topics covered include proper orthogonal decomposition (POD), dynamic mode decomposition (DMD), and spectral proper orthogonal decomposition (SPOD), in addition to analytical techniques including stability theory and resolvent analysis. Students will learn the fundamentals behind these techniques and will apply them to fluid dynamics data sets to build reduced-order models and gain insight into the physics of the flow. The term project will culminate in the writing of a conference-style paper that students can choose to submit for publication.
