The course develops the knowledge obtained in courses on the theory of fluid mechanics. The course introduces new knowledge in the areas of numerical solution of momentum equations by the method of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), turbulent flow modeling, solution of flow through porous material and flow of compressible fluids. The lectures are followed by seminars, which deal with examples of fluid flow in real systems. The evaluation of the subject is an individual project for calculating the flow of fluids. On exercise and problem solving will be used ANSYS FLUENT or OpenFOAM solvers.
