Advanced Fluid Mechanics

  • Number of credits 7.5 Credits
  • Level Master’s level
  • Starting Spring Term 2019

About the course

The course includes basic concepts and relationships in the fluid mechanics: conservation of mass, momentum and energy, and in hydrostatics: force and torque in stagnant fluids. Furthermore, the course covers concepts and relationships as circulation, vorticity, rotating and non-rotating flow of an ideal fluid, Bernoulli's theorem, resistance and buoyancy of an ideal fluid. Linear waves and instabilities in an ideal fluid is treated as well as viscous flow, dimensional analysis, relaxation and flow resistance, boundary layers and jet streams. The course also deals with heat conduction and convection. The course includes experimental laboratory work where flow through a capillary and through a Venturi tube is studied. The course also includes computer laboratory work where flow through a channel, flow resistance on a sphere and a cylinder and flow past streamlined bodies are studied.
