After the course the student is able to/the four main objectives of the course are:|
1. Derive equations from fundamental laws of physics
2. Derive new models for new fluid dynamic geometries
3. Analyze equations for common fluid dynamic geometries
4. Identify relevant parameters of a flow geometry and reason about approximations
Derivation of the conservation laws, vorticity, potential flow in 2D and 3D, conformal mapping and 2D flow, Zhukovsky Airfoil, waves, shallow water equations, flow at low Reynolds numbers, Stokes and Oseen solutions, Hele-Shaw flow, flow at high Reynolds numbers, boundary layers, self-similarity, hydrodynamic stability.|
The objective of this course is to acquire a firm base in classical fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the derivation of the governing equations, their analytical solutions, and their physical implications. Advanced Fluid Mechanics will serve as an introduction to the basic equations and phenomena needed in "Turbulence" , "Experimental Techniques in Physics of Fluids", “Physics of Bubbles”, “Capillarity Phenomena” and various specific lectures on e.g. acoustics, granular flow, computational fluid dynamics, etc.
the result of the exam will be determined by the following assessment plan;
- written test (60%)
- deliverable assignments (40%).
