(2) Understand basic numerical schemes, such as finite difference method, finite volume method and particle method. Understand numerical solutions

(3) Understand three widely used engineering models such as RANS model, SWE model and SPH model

(4) Learn how to write code, carry out numerical simulation and analyze numerical results using plotting software

(5) Learn how to use a large engineering model to solve a practical problem of free surface flow
