IIT Kharagpur Short Term Course TEQIP on Non-equilibrium Aerothermodynamics

IIT Kharagpur, has invited application for 5 days short term course on Non-equilibrium Aerothermodynamics. Details of the course are given below.

Name of the Course: TEQIP- KIT, Non-equilibrium Aerothermodynamics

Program Content:
1. Introduction to Non-equilibrium Gas Flows: Need for a molecular description of fluid flow, concepts of equilibrium, continuum breakdown, degree of  nonequilibrium.
2. Molecular Model & Collisions: Molecular model, elastic collisions, concept of collision cross-section, collision frequency, mean free path, collision rate constant,  hard sphere model, variable hard sphere model, inelastic collisions.
3. Basic Kinetic Theory: Dilute gas flows, velocity distribution function, derivation of the Boltzmann equation and its importance, Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution,  H-theorem.
4. Solution of the Boltzmann Equation: Introduction to particle based approach, Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method, how it works, different processes  modeled, gas-surface interactions, calculation of macroscopic properties, scope/ mandates of the method, example problems.
