051176 – COMPUTATIONAL TECHNIQUES FOR THERMOCHEMICAL PROPULSION [link]

An advanced course of computational engineering about the implementation of algorithms and advanced CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) methodologies in the Finite Volume Method for turbulent, compressible, reactive and multiphase flows in moving boundary problems using OpenFOAM. The class is though for graduate students of the Master in Aeronautical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Most recent techniques in the field of computational engineering, used for development, use and deployment of CFD/C++ software in the Cloud and on HPC systems are discussed.


The free open-source software OpenFOAM is selected as the course basic tool for the class.

086052 – INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES (2008-2019)



I held this class about fundamentals of the design and operation of internal combustion engines from 2008 to 2019 to undergraduate students of BS in Mechanical Engineering. Main topics were: the influence of design on the engine performance, efficiency, fuel requirements and environmental impact; the study of fluid flow, thermodynamics, combustion, heat transfer and friction phenomena, and fuel properties, relevant to engine power, efficiency, and emissions; the examination of design features and operating characteristics of different types of internal combustion engines (spark-ignition, diesel, stratified-charge, HCCI).
