Fundamentals of fluids and their properties, application of laws of statics, buoyancy, stability, energy and momentum behavior of ideal and real fluids; dimensional analysis and similitude and their application to flow through ducts and piping; dynamic lift and related problems.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
For seniors and beginning graduate students interested in numerical analysis of engineering problems in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Emphasizes numerical techniques for solving fluid/thermal problems. Surveys the general governing equations and methods to solve them, including finite-difference, and finite-volume methods. Introduces state-of-the-art computer tools for analysis and graphical representation of results. Gives students a broad view of computational fluid mechanics for engineering applications in the fluid/thermal sciences.
