Title: Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) through project-based learning
Authors: Dales, Richard
Willis, Liz
Keywords: Computational Fluid Dynamics
Issue Date: 2010
Publisher: © Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, Loughborough University
Abstract: This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2010, from data gathered through observations of the teaching component; interviews with the tutor and a student focus group. A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) module was started in the 1990s when many colleagues perceived CFD as too ‘dangerous’ to be taught at undergraduate level. It was usually reserved for postgraduate level study. The tutor, Henk Versteeg, and the department could see the commercial applications of the codes and wanted to introduce the students to some of the software that was being developed. Henk approached the software vendors directly and negotiated educational discounts for the licences.
