German / English Strömungslehre 2 / Fluid Dynamics
The lecture offers deeper knowledge on important problems in fluid dynamics, and is divided into the following chapters:
The lecture gives an introduction to thermodynamics and fluid mechanics of compressible media, in particular gases. The structure of the lecture is:
- Introductory repetition of kontinuummechanics fundamentals and a short introduction to the kinetic theory
- One-dimensional streamtube theory for steady nozzle flow, stationary shocks and the compressible, viscous flow
- One-dimensional streamtube theory for linear (acoustic) and non-linear wave propagation, the shocktube (aka the Riemann Problem), and the analogy to the shallow-water flow
- Gas dynamics of combustion: deflagration and detonation
- Introduction to analytical and numerical solution methods
The students will be able to understand the effects and phenomena of compressible flows and to identify them in technical systems. The will be able to perform calculations of steady and transient, one-dimensional flow phenomena and to evaluate the implications for plant or device design. The introduction to numerical solution methods gives a very first foundation for application of specialized simulation software.
English Turbulent Flows
- Origin of turbulence
- Statistical assessment of turbulence
- Structure of turbulent flows
- Simulation of turbulence - LES and DNS
- Reynolds-averaged equations
- Approaches for turbulence modelling
- Compressible turbulent flows
