There are many situations in which a computational approach is the ideal one for studying a problem. For example, in studying the flow of air in the breathing tract of a human, one can hardly do experiments! And even if we could experiment, how could we *see* what is happening? By simulation, we can both perform virtual experiments of the flow of fluids, and visualize the results in a myriad ways. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is vital for many applications of science and engineering. This course is designed for graduate students or advanced undergraduates.

Assuming no shearing stresses, it concludes with the Euler equations in vector form.||1/16/2012||Free||View in iTunes|
CFD - BU ME702 Lecture Series
I feel that this was a great set of lectures for an introduction to CFD. The style of writing out equations has been lost with the era of PowerPoint charts. To see the equations and discretizations being derived slowly and methodically I feel was a great help.
I wish we could see more of the simulations using the Enthought Python tool from the assignments.... but that would make things too easy on the student.
After this class, I am now reading my Tannehill, Anderson and Pletcher textbook with much better understanding.
