Courses

Finite element method

In this course, the student gets acquainted with the theoretical aspects of the finite element method, the most commonly used computational technique for solving elliptic problems. He learns to apply the finite element method to simple test cases and to more complex problems faced in practice

Hydrodynamics

Nondimensionalized Navier-Stokes equations result in a great variety of models (Stokes, Lubrification, Euler, Potential) depending on the Reynolds number. The concept of boundary layer enables us then to identify the different components of the hydrodynamic drag.

Instability

This course focuses on the physical mechanisms at the origin of the transition of a flow from laminar to turbulent using the hydrodynamic instability theory.
