S.M.R. Pishvaie

**Status (in the study program):**__
Compulsory course in Process Design group,
Optional course in others __

**Aims/Scope/Objectives: **The students
are acquainted with engineering judgment and analysis of results obtained from
simulation of flow processes, albeit within the context of chemical engineering. The basic aim is to familiarize students with
key components of Computational Fluid
Modeling (CFM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
with an emphasis on reactive flow
systems. In general terms, the course can be designated as a Computational
Transport Phenomena (CTP) course. In the early sections of the lectures (named FDM and FEM), students
are brought the paradigm of discretization and functional schemes of Partial
Differential Equations (PDEs).
The remaining parts, named Finite Volume Methods, discuss about
the well-established flow formulations and solution techniques of underlying
equations.

General rules for examination of this course

ü
You are expected to do __
assignments individually__

ü
__
Final project can be
handled in group__, if you will.

ü
It is __not allowed__ to
hand in solutions copied from other students, or from elsewhere, even if you
make changes to the solutions. If there is suspicion of such or any other form
of cheating, that assignment/project mark will be kindly averaged to those
participants multiplied by a factor less than 1.0 !!

ü
All in-house coding/programs should be
written in __MATLAB language__.

ü
All reports should be typed
in Microsoft Word processor and converted in .pdf format afterwards.

**ü****
**
**Any hint, comment and
rational analysis will be appreciated and considered as an extra bonus. **Note
that assignments have been uploaded all-together, hence; you may save the time
and stand more to think about the problems.

ü
__
DEADLINES are really an
important matter in this course__. Unless an arrangement has
been approved, assignments/project handed in late will be penalized 10% per day,
and will not be accepted beyond a week overdue.

ü The assignments/project
related programs, files and the .pdf/.doc/.docx version of the report(s) should
be submitted electronically through
saman.jahanbakhshi@gmail.com and a CC to
pishvaie@sharif.edu within due time.

ü
The HWs/assignments/project
and related programs, files and the .pdf/.doc/.docx version of the report(s) should
be compressed as a just one single file and the **subject** should
identify the** "Student Name**", **"his/her std number**",
and most importantly, **"CFD_9394_2 HW #?"** and then being
submitted afterwards.

Homeworks:

Term Project: Student are asked to define their term project/papers. It is usually selected as their graduate projects (at least in an inaugural manner) or some previous and their private interest. However, there are lots of interesting topics found in BSLs' book and Internet & web resources. Hereby, two projects are offered: 1) the Mpemba problem and 2) modeling the jet-blowers in Towhid tunnel.
