First time: Study year 2018-2019
Course contents:
Mechanical properties of fluids. Fluids at rest and in equilibrium (hydrostatics). Kinematics of fluid motion. The Euler equation and Bernoulli equation for inviscid flow. Reynold's transport theorem. The continuity equation, momentum equation and energy equation on integral form. Boundary layers (simple). Steady flow of incompressible fluids in conduits and open channels, including energy losses. Dimensional analysis, Buckingham's pi theorem, similitude. Lift and drag on immersed bodies. Glimpses of ideal inviscid flow analysis, Navier-Stokes equations and CFD. Laboratory exercises illustrate important flow phenomena.
Learning outcome:
The students should understand and be able to describe the principles of fluid mechanics and apply these for solving practical problems. Students should be able to apply fundamental physical laws to fluid in motion, and on this basis give a mathematical description of simple flow phenomena. The student should be able to use this for solving problems related to flow of liquids in pipes and channels. The students should be able to conduct simple experiments on moving fluids.
Learning activities:
Lectures, exercise sessions with a teaching assistant, laboratory exercises and compulsory assignments.
Teaching support:
By appointment, students will be able to meet with the teacher outside of teaching hours.
