An introduction to numerical solution of the continuity, momentum, and energy equations. Topics include: numerical solutions of the heat conduction equation, boundary-layer equations, lubrication equations, Stokes equations, Navier-Stokes equations, and energy equation. Emphasis is placed on finite difference solutions, but other solution techniques are touched upon. Students are also exposed to modeling with a commercial CFD package.
