Abstract

Successful incorporation of a commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) package into an undergraduate Mechanical Engineering (ME) program is described. Principle objectives were to aid students in flow visualization and in understanding of mathematical models of the flow. Use of CFD in three senior level courses is described. Level of student involvement and knowledge of CFD varied significantly from course to course, but student response was very positive in all instances and faculty perception was that these efforts had a positive effect on the student learning.
