Leerdoelen  At the end of the course, the student is able to: 1. Explain the different numerical techniques used in CFD and evaluate their advantages/disadvantages. 2. Use the different conservation laws in order to describe and model the different systems. 3. Select, based on the evaluation of the model, the appropriate simulation environment in order to analyze these processes. 4. Compare the different approaches and scales used in CFD and discuss their range of applicability based on the process studied. 5. Visualize the behavior of the system and debate about its influence on the mechanical design of the affected facility/system. 6. Use the model to predict the behavior of the process based on the fluid properties and formulate strategies in order to improve the performance when different fluids are used. 

Omschrijving  Numerical simulation (CFD) has become an increasingly important tool to study and understand mass and energy transport, as a complement to the traditional experimental approaches. This applied to either complex fluid models (such as NonNewtonian viscoelastic) or complex geometries (reactor design).

Entreevoorwaarden  The course assumes prior knowledge acquired from bachelor (chemical) engineering curricula, including (but not limited to) transport phenomena, calculus, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. The students should also have at least a basic knowledge of algebra, differential equations and numerical methods in order to solve the problems. Moreover, basic programming skills are required in order to write the computer codes which are part of the reports to be presented.  
Opmerkingen  The minimum grade has to be 5.5 in every of the assessment procedures used on the course. Students can take the exam without having approved the reports but these must be improved. The students have one opportunity to improve the grade from the exam. Note: The students are required to be in at least two of the first three lectures, and during the first practical lecture. Unjustified absence (the reason must be notified before the lecture) will cause the student to not be able to take the exam, and therefore to pass the course. This course was registered last year with course code WMCH17006
