Particulate Flows (Winter Semester 2014/15)
- Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Willy Dörfler
- Classes: Lecture (0112700)
- Weekly hours: 2
Master Mathematics, Technical Mathematics, Economical Mathematics
We consider several models to mathematically describe flows with particles. Here, we focus on the behaviour of rigid bodies in viscous flows. In addition to the influence of gravity (sedimentation) we consider also the influence of electrical effects.
Requirements: Numerical methods for Differential Equations, numerical methods in fluid mechanics.
The lectures starts 21.10.
