ME 614, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Spring 2013



Lecture is set for Tu/TH 12-1:15PM in Potter Studio B

The textbook for the class is Pletcher, Tannehill, and Anderson's 3rd Edition of Computational Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer. It should be available on-campus in the bookstore but it also available online here or here

The average on the midterm was around 80. Nice work!

Lecture notes

In order to access these notes, you must use your valid Purdue Careeer account and be registered for this class. If you have problems, please email me.


You will be able to download your HW assignment below.

Computing Environment

You have several options here. If you are on campus you can sit in front of one of the 4 Linux machines mentioned in class and located in the 2nd floor ME computer room. If you know Linux or want to learn quickly this is ideal. For remote access, if you use Windows try PuTTY which is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator. You can also use SecureCRT (download, install, and use instructions available at the MECL link below). You can also ssh via Terminal in Mac OSX or Linux (instructions for installing Linux as a dual boot option (at your own risk) provided in notes).


I may post codes here for you to download etc.


Here you can download the syllabus, lecture notes, etc. The Fortran handouts were found online and there are many, many more....
