Teachers:
Prof.dr.ir. C.

and
Dr.ir. F.J. Vermolen
Subjects: Finite element methods for the incompressible NavierStokes
equations and iterative solution methods.
Finite element methods for the incompressible NavierStokes
equations
A short introduction to the finite element method is given.
The following fluid flow applications are used: Poisson equation,
convectiondiffusion equation and the incompressible NavierStokes
equations. Subjects studied in more detail are: (streamline) upwind
methods, problems originating from the incompressibility condition,
and the linearisation of convective terms in the NavierStokes
equations.
Some remarks are given on timedependent problems.
Iterative solution methods.
The solution of systems of linear equations. The main part of the
course is devoted to modern iterative methods. Furthermore the
following related topics are considered:
 direct and iterative methods for (sparse) linear systems,
 iterative methods to compute eigenvalues of matrices,
 implementation of these methods on vector and parallel
computers.
As applications systems are used which originate from fluid flow
problems.
