Professor Pino Martin established the graduate course MAE 558: Simulation and Modeling of Turbulent Fluid Flows in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at Princeton University in the Spring of 2004. This course studies the foundation of CFD as applied to turbulent flows. The concepts of numerical accuracy and bandwidth are introduced, Aliasing and Nyquist criteria are discussed, solutions in differential form and wave space are studied, and the numerical representation of turbulent transport, production, and dissipation are also discussed. Techniques for the simulation and modeling of turbulent flows are described, including direct numerical simulation (DNS), large-eddy simulation (LES), and Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS). Homework topics include writing codes to solve isotropic turbulence using DNS, LES, and RANS methodologies.
