Integration of simulation technology 29 Rajesh Bhaskaran 284C Grumman Hall, 14853 Ithaca, NY, USA Fax: 607 255 1222 E-mail: rb88@cornell.edu Sonya Smith School of engineering and Computer Science, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Howard University, USA Fax: 202 806 5258 E-mail: sts6f@vortex.eng.howard.edu Barbara Hutchings and Shane Moeykens Fluent Inc. 10, Cavendish Court, 03766 Lebanon, NH, USA Fax: 603 643 3967 E-mail: bjh@fluent.com E-mail: sam@fluent.com Abstract: Teaching modules for complementary computational and experimental fluid mechanics and uncertainty analysis were developed to integrate simulation technology into undergraduate engineering courses and laboratories. Engineering faculties from a range of public and private universities and the software partner Fluent, Inc. have collaborated to develop, implement, evaluate, and disseminate web-based teaching modules utilising simulation technology based on further development of the commercial software, FlowLab. The first two years' formative and summative student evaluation data identified successful leaning outcomes, as well as strategies for improvement, including the need for an efficient, hands-on, 'computational fluid dynamics educational interface' to better simulate engineering practice. Keywords: simulation technology; teaching module; computational fluid dynamics; experimental fluid dynamics; uncertainty analysis.
