This master's thesis aims at use a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) under an educational perspective, targeting disciplines of fluid mechanics and transport phenomena in the initial series of engineering and physics courses. In this thesis are presented the construction techniques and modeling of flows to be used in an educational perspective at Andragogic Theory of Knowles and the Theory of Meaningful Learning of David Ausubel, major educational theories applied during this research. The importance on basic formation is widely supported by the literature, however, is proposing to work the computer simulation so not only statement, but inserting the students as directly responsible for analysing and encoding data and results of simulations. The students will be able to view the physical event, establishing an relationship between the mathematical prediction of the system equations and analised phenomenon. The educational product developed in this work is an interface for manipulation and control of the OpenFOAM, a opensource software. The educational product developed in this work is a manipulation and control interface opensource software OpenFOAM. Its purpose is to avoid the student responsibility for direct manipulation and editing source code and the typical complex scripts of control of this program. In this essay are included the basics in fluid mechanics and mathematical and computational modeling of fluid dynamics, along with an entire functional structure of the J.A.R.V.E.S. interface, this being the main reason for this work.
