Fluid Dynamics (MSK560)
The course gives an advanced mathematical description and analysis of fluid flow. The main emphasis will be on analytical solution methods.
Course description for study year 2022-2023
Semester tution start
Number of semesters
Language of instruction
Mathematical description of fluid motion, Navier-Stoke's and energy equations and their solutions, flow regimes: Stokes' flow and potential flow. Lift and drag. Laminar boundary layers. Flow separation and attachment, Instability and the transition to turbulent flow. Turbulent boundary layers. Short introduction to CFD.
The student shall have knowledge of the physics and the mathematical formalism for the description of fluids in order to be able to read and understand the technical literature in the field, and shall be able to make simple calculations of velocity, pressure, temperature and shear stress for incompressible viscous flow. Furthermore, the student shall have knowledge of important phenomena of advanced fluid dynamics, like flow regimes, boundary layers, instabilities and the transition to turbulent flow as well as basic CFD.
