Professor Pino Martin established the graduate course MAE 557: Simulation and Modeling of Fluid Flows in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton University in the Spring of 2003. In this course, numerical methods are applied to solve the equations that govern fluid motion. Finite-difference and finite-volume methods are considered, together with concepts of accuracy, consistency, stability, convergence, conservation, and shock capturing. A range of current methods is reviewed, with an emphasis on multidimensional steady and unsteady compressible flows. Homework topics include writing codes to solve the conservation equation for a scalar, boundary-layer flow, shock-tube flow, and application to curvilinear coordinates.
