Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) Distance Learning Course




A distance learning course for scientists and engineers involved in high- and low-speed rarefied gas dynamics.


Detailed Description

This course makes use of the open source DSMC code dsmcFoam, developed at the University of Strathclyde, which has now been enhanced to include for chemical reactions using the quantum-kinetic (QK) approach and low-speed, pressure-driven, microscale gas flows.  The code operates in a Linux environment.

The distance learning course consists of:

  1. A comprehensive set of course notes describing the background to the DSMC approach for high- and low-speed applications using the enhanced version of dsmcFoam.
  2. Provision of the enhanced dsmcFoam code and instructions for installation.
  3. A set of tutorial cases for low- and high-speed applications including pressure-driven microscale flows and hypersonic reacting flows.
  4. On-line, forum-based support using the DSMC threads on http://www.cfd-online.com/.
