TIME:  Tuesday & Thursday  10:20 – 11:35  E-113
PROF:  Paul Palies

This course is focused on data sciences applied to fluid mechanics numerical simulations and experimental data. As computational power increases, it enables to model industrial applications and fluid mechanics processes by Computational Fluid Dynamics tools with more spatial and time resolutions as well as considering sub-system-level simulations. The amount of data generated is significant and requires dedicated methods and techniques to interrogate and analyses them. Within this context, this class aims at presenting flowfield decompositions, selected CFD discretization’s algorithm to solve for basic flow, and data analyses techniques such as FFT, POD, and DMD. The students undertake implementation of the presented algorithms in R, MatLab, and/or Python. The basics of these tools are also introduced. There are three major elements tackled during this special topic: Introduce static/dynamic flow (SDFD) and other flow decompositions, Conduct implementation of the relevant equations for selected flows, Conduct data analyses and implementation of algorithm to interrogate and visualize data (CFD data and experimental flame images) including FFT, Phase-locking, POD, DMD and other recent techniques.

This is a three-credit hour course. Laptop is required as well as background in MatLab, R or Python.

TIME:    Tuesday & Thursday    3:05- 4:20       Fully Online
PROF:    Paul Palies

This course focuses on aeroacoustics and combustion noise for aerospace systems. The goals are to (i) describe aeroacoustics processes and sources with experiment, numerical and theoretical examples, (ii) derive existing theories for sound propagation modeling, (iii) understand and implement computational aeroacoustics on canonical examples. The next step is on combustion noise which can be associated with the aeroacoustics of reactive systems. Examples from literature are discussed and the underlying modeling strategy presented as well as the derivation made. The novel Advanced Topics proposes to describe and understand known aeroacoustics theories and their utilization in both non-reacting and reacting conditions.

This course is focused on data sciences applied to fluid mechanics numerical simulations and experimental data. As computational power increases, it enables to model industrial applications and fluid mechanics processes by Computational Fluid Dynamics tools with more spatial and time resolutions as well as considering sub-system-level simulations. The amount of data generated is significant and requires dedicated methods and techniques to interrogate and analyses them. Within this context, this class aims at presenting flowfield decompositions, selected CFD discretization’s algorithm to solve for basic flow, and data analyses techniques such as FFT, POD, and DMD. The students undertake implementation of the presented algorithms in R, MatLab, and/or Python. The basics of these tools are also introduced. There are three major elements tackled during this special topic: Introduce static/dynamic flow (SDFD) and other flow decompositions, Conduct implementation of the relevant equations for selected flows, Conduct data analyses and implementation of algorithm to interrogate and visualize data (CFD data and experimental flame images) including FFT, Phase-locking, POD, DMD and other recent techniques.

This is a three-credit hour course.   Laptop is required as well as background in MatLab, R or Python.

  • Credit Restriction: Students cannot receive credit for more than 9 hours combined of Aerospace Engineering 599, Biomedical Engineering 599, and Mechanical Engineering 599.
