Industrial/PhD Course: Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics


17.08.2021 kl. 08.30 - 20.08.2021 kl. 16.30



Associate Professor Chungen Yin,, Aalborg University, Denmark  


Associate Prof. Chungen Yin, Aalborg University 
Associate Prof. Torsten Berning, Aalborg University 

ECTS: 4.0 


Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been successfully used in innovative design, trouble-shooting, optimization of technologies and facilities in numerous areas. This advanced CFD course will provide a familiarity with and an in-depth understanding of the following topics and issues: 

  • Day 1: Fundamentals of CFD (intro to CFD; the finite volume method for various steady and unsteady problems; different spatial and temporal discretization schemes, their formulation, assessment and applicability). Lecturer: Chungen Yin; 7.4 hours 
  • Day 2: RANS turbulence modeling (SIMPLE algorithm for pressure-velocity coupling; fundamentals of turbulence; different isotropic eddy viscosity models; near-wall modeling; meshing impact and strategies). Lecturer: Chungen Yin; 7.4 hours 
  • Day 3: Multiphase flow modeling (different methods for multiphase flow modeling such as Lagrangian method, Eulerian method, mixture & volume of fluid approach; modeling multiphase flow in porous media). Lecturer: Torsten Berning; 7.4 hours
  • Day 4: Turbulent combustion modeling and user-defined functions (combustion analysis tools; species transport/eddy dissipation or EDC; mixture fraction/PDF; fundamentals & examples of user-defined functions). Lecturer: Chungen Yin; 7.4 hours 

During each of the four days, lectures will be combined with demos and hands-on sessions, in order to achieve the above objectives. 


Basic knowledge in fluid flow, turbulence, multiphase, combustion, programming 

Form of evaluation: 

finish one of the following tasks and the corresponding mini-project report. 

  1. numerically solve a general transport equation using the finite volume method and the key results; or 
  2. modeling of a turbulent flow using a commercial CFD code both by the default software and by developing and integrating user-defined functions. 


6000 DKK for PhD students outside of Denmark and 8000 DKK for the Industry.
