The course objective is to present the formulation, inter-equation coupling and solution procedures for some common multi-physics continuum mechanics problems. The students will:
- understand the formulation and functioning of some common continuum models expressed in terms of partial differential equations, with appropriate closure equations, initial and boundary conditions
- understand the inter-variable coupling and formulation of complex multi-physics systems
- understand various forms of discretisation present in computational continuum mechanics, including Eulerian volumetric (continuum models), lagrangian particle tracking models and Eulerian surface-based models
Upon completion the students will be able to:
- Implement solution procedures for single-physics and multi-physics problems
- Examine and implement coupled discretised models for conjugate and coupled simulations
