12 Steps to Navier-Stokes

News The first practical self-learning module of Prof. Lorena Barba's Computational Fluid Dynamics class, as taught between 2010 and 2013 at Boston University is now available.

The module is called 12 steps to Navier-Stokes equations (yes, it's a tongue-in-cheek allusion of the recovery programs for behavioral problems). It was inspired by the ideas of Dr. Rio Yokota, who was a post-doc in Barba's lab, and has been refined by Prof. Barba and her students over several semesters teaching the course.

The course is for beginners. It assumes only basic programming skills —the concepts of iterations, loops, function calls and so on— and builds immediate hands-on experience via this module and several others that come after. In the future, we hope to publish materials for the other modules also (e.g., convection schemes with Burgers equation, Euler equations and shock-tube problem, and others).

We use Python for this class, and those engineering students that are dependent on Matlab just have to bite the bullet and learn Python.

Prof. Barba has a long track record of sharing educational materials freely online. Recordings of her lectures for the CFD course were made available first on iTunesU in 2010. Then, in 2012, she decided to use the flipped classroom model and re-posted the videos on YouTube, after editing for length and with some additions.

The new CFD Python Class Notebooks are her latest free online materials!
