SDL Fluids presents

Introduction to Finite Element Methods for Flow Problems

Date: 23.04.2024 01.00 pm - 05.00 pm; Format: online

Short abstract:

In this course, we cover various techniques to solve fluid flow problems using the finite element method. Topics of numerical instabilities that result from the underlying formulation will be presented. Furthermore, we will review relevant stabilization techniques that are used to tackle such instabilities. The course consists of a combination of presentations and hands-on coding exercises in which the various methods are discussed and implemented within a basic finite element solver using Python.
