The material is focused at numerical methods implemented in state-of-the-art CFD industrial codes running on High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters.
Mathematical models describing real-world engineering problems such as modelling flows around turbine blades, wind turbulence around a vehicle or boat, improving turbine engine performance, modelling of weather predictions, etc. are quite large in size due to many unknowns involved. On top of that, they present time dependency, meaning that the solution changes at each time step – at every second or even at smaller steps. Solving such problems is not a simple task and the use of HPC technologies and infrastructures enables to perform large simulations and to reduce their runtime.
