Modeling, Simulation, Validation

The Institute of Computational Science (ICS) at the University of Lugano announces a winter school on computational fluid dynamics.

The winter school is supported and organized by the Swiss Graduate School FOMICS - "Foundations in Mathematics and Informatics for Computer Simulations in Science and Engineering”, which is located at ICS.

The winter school will cover the modeling of fluid flow, turbulence and all major numerical discretization schemes, such as finite differences, spectral methods, finite elements, and finite volumes. Moreover, two surface flow and complex applications such as combustion modeling and their validation will be treated.


Dominik Obrist (Uni Bern), Sven Groß (RWTH Aachen), Ioannis Mantzaras (PSI Villingen), Patrick Jenny (ETH Zürich)


The course will start with an introduction to the Navier-Stokes equations, i.e. the mathematical model for incompressible flow, and with the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equation, including the direct numerical simulation of turbulent flow using finite and compact differences and spectral methods.

Finite elements for fluid flow and free surface flow will be treated next, followed by combustion modeling. Basic thermodynamic principles as well as the validation of the numerically obtained results will be discussed. In the last part of the course, finite volumes methods for compressible flow will be considered.

The course is designed to give a comprehensive overview on state-of-the art numerical techniques not only for laminar and turbulent flow, but also for two surface flow and combustion. In addition to numerical methods, also their application and validation will be considered.


Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), Lugano.
