a) Videos of lecture slides, with explanations through voice recording, will be available in time for the originally planned lecture slots.
b) Videos of tutorials and example classes will also be made available in time for the respective originally planned slots.
c) The lecture and tutorial slots will be used as ‘question & answer' sessions, starting from April 27th. The format and communication platform will be announced in due course. We hope to provide at least some level of interaction in this way.
d) The course material of “Strömungslehre 1” and “Fluidmechanics 1" can be accessed via moodle, for which you need a password. This is the birth date of Osborne Reynolds - a very famous figure in the history of fluid mechanics who performed ground-breaking work on turbulence. The birthday must be formatted as "DDMMYYYY".
e) The course material of "Numerics and Flow Simulation" can be accessed via moodle, for which you need a password. This is the birth date of John von Neumann. The birthday must be formatted as "DDMMYYYY".
f) Besides the videos, we are working on a text for the courses - this will be updated throughout the term.
We hope that these measures will help you gain a good insight into the field of fluid mechanics, and you can perhaps even enjoy the experience a little.

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
German / English Strömungslehre 1 / Fluidmechanics
English Numerics & Flow Simulation
In the courses Strömungslehre 1 / fluid mechanics as well as in Strömungslehre 2 / fluid dynamics a written exam is taken.
In the courses Numerics & Flow Simulation, Turbulent Flows and Gas Dynamics an oral exam is taken.
Registration for all exams is done via the responsible examination office within the given deadlines.
The appointments for the oral exams are made directly with us at the end of the lecture period.
Further details on examination dates, registration deadlines and contact addresses can be found here.
