Module overview

This module will develop the fundamentals of fluid mechanics in the context of naval architecture and ocean engineering. The module continues from the more descriptive fluid mechanics material in part 1 and part 2, and develops the mathematical, computational, and conceptual techniques needed to solve for the flow around ship shaped bodies and lifting surfaces. These concepts will have direct relevance to other modules in part 3 and part 4 modules where evaluation of added mass, boundary layers, and numerical methods are necessary to establish the fluid loading and motion of maritime structures and vessels. The effects of a free surface are not included in the module.
