Synopsis:

The course is focused on the design and properties of numerical methods for solving fluid flow equations. Focus is put

mainly on the finite volume method whose classical and advanced schemes are derived. Selected schemes are analyzed

in terms of stability. The second part is devoted to advanced numerical schemes used in practice. The matter is

concluded by a brief summary of alternative numerical approaches for fluid flow simulation and by a demonstration of

visualization techniques for simulation results.
