Dr. Jansen's teaching and research interests are focused on computational fluid dynamics. He specializes in massively parallel simulations using unstructured/adaptive grids. Applications include aerospace (with an emphasis on flow control and turbulence), cardiovascular flows, and two-phase flows.
ASEN 3111 - Aerodynamics
Develops the fundamental concepts of aerodynamics and provides a working knowledge for their application to the design of aircraft and launch vehicles operating at various speeds and altitudes, as well as the atmospheric forces on satellites. Offered fall only.
ASEN 5331 - Computational Fluid Dynamics Unstructured Grid
Focuses on unstructured grid computational approaches to solve the Navier-Stokes equations. Assumes a basic knowledge of the solution of partial differential equations with numerical methods with focus finite element/volume methods (FEM/FVM but primarily FEM). These issues include: the discrete formulation, non-linear equation iterator, linear equation formation, boundary condition prescription and linear equation solution.
