Fluid dynamics

Draft of subject contents 

Fluid Dynamics basic laws and equations. Mass conservation and continuity equation. Euler equation for ideal fluid flow.  Navier Stokes equations for viscous fluid flow and some elementary solutions. Energy equation and compressible fluid flow. Turbulence.  Turbulent flow Reynolds equations. Turbulence models. Software overview for simulation of real fluid flow. Unsteady fluid pipe flow. Unsteady free surface flow. 

Developing of general and specific competences (knowledge and skills) 

Students are encouraged to consider the physical significance of laws and equations in fluid dynamics and to develop ability to solve the wide range of problems concerning fluid dynamics and to formulate independent projects involving fluid dynamics. 

Forms of tuition performing and manner of knowledge checking 

Tuition performing: lectures, exercises, independent work, and consultations. Manner of knowledge checking: class participation, written and oral exam.
