Course detail

Preprocessing of Computational Models

FSI-QR0Acad. year: 2018/2019

Course Preprocessing of Computational Models introduces students to the problems of forming computational models for the CFD and FEM aplications. Students will learn the overall methodology for compiling the computational model. The focus of the course lies in mastering the forming of free tetra meshes. Students are generally familiar with creating mapped hexa meshes.
