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.

Two-phase flows and heat transfer

This course covers the theoretical and practical analysis of two-phase flow and applications. Fundamental two-phase heat transfer in the form of condensation and boiling are studied in detail. Advanced topics such as microchannel two-phase flow, microfinned tubes and oil effects are also handled.
