Nowadays, many studies involve numerical modelling, often via dedicated softwares. Practically, one always find the same key ingredients: transcription of the geometry, meshing of the corresponding domain, physical phenomena to consider, numerical resolution. Even if these tasks are usually done with a software, it is important to have a fair view of these steps so as to produce relevant results. This lecture is devoted to give the basic knowledges to a future engineer who might one day realize, analyse or order an industrial simulation.
