Each morning, three lectures will introduce fundamental concepts of numerical fluid mechanics. We start with the commonly used approaches and continue with actual concepts in research. The specific topics are
We address the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches to solve numerically the practical problems of aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, and fluid mechanics.
The afternoons will be devoted to more informal sessions concerning the algorithms, how to implement, and the application of the techniques as presented in the morning.
The seminar will be devised for an interdisciplinary audience from mathematics, engineering and natural sciences. Some background in the numerical solution of differential equations, about conservation equations and the equations of fluid motion are required. Manuscripts on the different topics will be made available.
The seminars take place at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach. The number of participants is restricted to 24. The Institute covers accommodation and food. Travel expenses cannot be reimbursed. Applications including
