Summer Term Fluid Mechanics

 

This course is aimed at providing an introductory understanding of some fundamental concepts in fluid mechanics, and first hand experience in relevant calcualtions. This is the English equivalent of the course Strömungslehre 1 that is offered in German by the Chair of Fluid Dynamics. The following topics are covered:

  • Hydrostatics
  • Flow rates and the concept of transport through a control area
  • Conservation of mass, momentum and energy
  • The Bernoulli equation
  • Actuator disk theory
  • Aerodynamics
  • Viscous flow
  • Pipe flows
  • Reynolds number
  • Turbulence

Winter Term Fluid Dynamics

Mohri, K. and Hillier, R., Shock Waves 21, 175-191 (2011)

 

In this course we look more deeply at some fluid dynamics scenarios of particular interest, with the aim of enabling you to analyse and mathematically describe complex theoretical or experimental problems. This is the English equivalent of the Strömungslehre 2 course that is offered in German by the Chair of Fluid Dynamics.  The following topics are covered:

  • The Navier-Stokes (N-S) equations and closure relations
  • Hierarchy of flow equations
  • Similarity theory
  • Incompressible flow equations
  • Exact solution of the N-S equations for special cases
  • Creeping flows
  • Potential flows
  • Boundary layer theory
  • Turbulent flow and the Reynolds-Averaged N-S (RANS) equations
  • Introduction to turbulent flows
  • Compressible flow
