Schedule, syllabus and examination date

Choose semester

Course content

The course will provide a comprehensive grounding in the subject of turbulence modeling and simulations, and develop both the physical insight and the mathematical framework needed to understand turbulence model formulations and their inherent limitations.

Learning outcome

After completion of the course you will have the following competence:

  • Understand the basic principles of turbulence modeling
  • Ability to understand the basic limitations of the most commonly used modeling approaches as well as to analyze turbulent flows using single-point descriptions
  • Insight into basic turbulence physics
  • Become a knowledgeable user of turbulence models
  • Insight into advanced modeling approaches related to Large Eddy Simulations.
  • Understand the use and limitations of Direct Numerical Simulations of turbulent flows.

Note the difference from UNIK4900.


PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.

Overlapping courses

For information about the potential partial overlap with other courses, contact the Department.


3 hours of lectures/exercises per week.


2 compulsory assignments need to be passed within given deadlines to be allowed to take the final exam. 1 assignment that counts for 20% of the final grade and 1 oral presentation in class that counts for 20%. Depending on the number of students, an oral or written exam will count for 60%. What form the exam will take will be announced within October 15th for the Fall semester and March 15th for the Spring semester.

Rules for compulsory assignments at the Department of Mathematics.

Examination support material
