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
Fall 2018 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
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.
ASEN 5051 - Fluid Mechanics
Highlights physical properties of gases and liquids; kinematics of flow fields; and equations describing viscous, heat-conducting Newtonian fluids. Emphasizes exact solutions and rational approximations for low and high speed dissipative flows, surface and internal waves, acoustics, stability, and potential flows.
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.
