Webinar: Teaching Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer with Interactive MATLAB Apps

  • Date: Friday, March 8th, 2013
  • Time: 8:00am - 9:00am

Also at 1:00 p.m.

Registration:  https://www.mathworks.com/company/events/webinars/wbnr74626.html?s_v1=51810114_1-4LZGZ

In this webinar, you will learn how to create and use MATLAB® apps to perform numerical analysis and illustrate concepts in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The webinar shows you how to find answers to questions such as how does the velocity profile develop in a channel flow? How does the temperature distribution change over time in a heated domain?

You’ll learn how to develop algorithms with MATLAB and Symbolic Math Toolbox™ to provide both numerical and analytical solutions. You’ll also see how to create graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to allow interactive control over input parameters and quick visualization. Starting with MATLAB R2012b, you can package GUIs and functions into MATLAB apps that can be easily shared with colleagues and students.

This webinar includes demonstrations that show how you can:

  • Develop numerical schemes in MATLAB
  • Simulate the development of boundary layers
  • Solve heat conduction equations
  • Visualize streamlines and velocity profiles
  • Build GUIs using GUIDE in MATLAB
  • Package GUIs as MATLAB apps for distribution

Please allow approximately 60 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session.
