Methods 4 SWS lecture + 2 SWS exercise session
Objectives Learn how to model fundamental processes in environmental physics with the continuum mechanical approach and learn how to simulate such models with state-of-the-art numerical methods.
Content Elementary linear models: • Flow in porous media / elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs) • Scalar transport / first-order hyperbolic PDEs • Heat Transport / parabolic PDE • Wave Propagation / first and second order hyperbolic PDEs Nonlinear models: • Coupled elementary models • Fluid dynamics / Stokes and Navier-Stokes equation
Learning outcomes Ability to apply models and numerical methods to environmental problems
Suggested previous knowledge Programming experience in particular in C++.
Basic knowledge of numerical methods is useful.
Assessments Solution of exercises and a final exam in written or oral form.
Details will be given by the lecturer at the beginning of the course.
