Development of models for the numerical simulation of transport phenomena (mass, energy and momentum) applied to complex materials (e.g. polymers) with the aid of the computational modeling software Comsol Multiphysics.
The theoretical principles of advanced numerical simulation of problems involving the materials commonly used in the process industry and the technical skills to use a computational code for solving the models that describe them will be provided.
The main learning outcomes of the course are related to the learning by the students of the fundamental concepts of the computational simulation of materials and processes, through which they can use in the future professional life the scientific knowledge acquired, applying it concretely to the resolution of various problems related to the industrial production system.
The aim of the course is to provide students with the necessary skills to set up and run a numerical simulation and analyze the results of problems involving mass, momentum and heat transport by solving the government equations through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software. The software will be applied to solve various problems of interest to the process industry and, in particular, to product engineering.
Expected learning outcomes:
(i) ability to develop mathematical models for fluid dynamics problems
(ii) knowledge of the theoretical principles of advanced numerical simulation of fluid dynamics problems
(iii) ability to use a calculation code for the resolution of such models

The lessons of the second semester will start on 28/2/2022 and will end on 10/6/2022, with the interruptions foreseen by the didactic calendar of the School of Sciences.
BEING IMPOSSIBLE TO PROVIDE NOW A DEFINITIVE LESSON SCHEDULE, AND IN VIEW OF ANY EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES CONCERNING DIDACTICAL ACTIVITY EMOTED BY THE UNIVERSITY, STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO FREQUENTLY VISIT THE WEB SITES https://corsi.unige.it/9020/p/studenti-orario AND https://chimica.unige.it/node/390 TO BE UPDATED ON THIS TOPICS
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Periodic learning checks - Final oral exam.
The oral exam will consist of a series of questions and subsequent discussion on the resolution of a case study previously assigned to the student, in order to evaluate the correct achievement of the learning outcomes (see "assessment methods").
Further information will be provided during the course (during the first lesson, and subsequently at the request of the student).
For students with disabilities or with SLD, the examination methods are consistent with the University regulations for carrying out the exams (https://unige.it/disabilita-dsa).
The attendance of the lessons constitutes a fundamental prerequisite for the achievement of the learning outcomes of the teaching.
The discussion on the resolution of the assigned case study will allow the verification of the actual achievement of these outcomes.
At the same time, the student's critical reasoning skills and his ability to answer specific questions in a clear and direct way will be assessed.
In particular, the student's ability to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired in response to realistic scenarios or to solve simple problems will also be positively evaluated.
If the learning outcomes are not achieved, the student will be invited to deepen the study and to make use of further explanations by the teacher.
