Numerical Solution of PDEs Using the Finite Element Method

Advanced course dedicated to the Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations through the deal.II Finite Element Library.


Models and applications in Computational Fluid Mechanics

The course refers to the use of computational fluid dynamics techniques to address advanced applications in environmental, cardiovascular and industrial contexts. Each topic will be corroborated by a set of numerical examples to be performed within the open source C++ finite volume library OpenFOAM.
