Module overview

This module begins with the introduction and derivation of the fundamental conservation equations for fluid mechanics (mass, momentum and energy). The application of these equations for solving simple flow problems will be demonstrated. This is followed by sections covering (1) viscous flow theory with an emphasis on boundary layers, (2) potential flow, (3) turbomachinery fluid dynamics, (4) compressible flow (5) turbulence and (6) CFD. The lectures are complemented by 2 laboratory classes with relevance to the taught material.
