Fluid Dynamics

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Fluid Dynamics
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013
Module code: WIBASc-525-625-Ing21
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+2U (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 5
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Written exam

[updated 14.03.2018]
Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

WIBASc-525-625-Ing21 (P450-0039) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013 , semester 5, optional course, general subject
WIB21-WPM-T-101 (P450-0039) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2021 , semester 5, optional course, general subject

Suitable for exchange students (learning agreement)
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
WIBASc145 Physics
WIBASc165 Mathematics I
WIBASc365 English I

Learning outcomes:
 After successfully completing this module, students will know the basics of classical fluid dynamics theory.
 - Students will be able to plan an innovative aircraft geometry in teams
 - The fluid flow simulation of the prototype will be done using the ANSYS Workbench (CFX)
 - Students will be able to identify problems in this area and formulate tasks independently
 - Students will have had their first introductory training in working with the 3D computational fluid dynamics program ANSYS Workbench (CFX)
The main goal of this module is to teach students to classify the costs and benefits of a commercial flow simulation and to successfully assign and delegate tasks.
