Syllabus academic year 2007/2008

Higher education credits: 7,5. Grading scale: TH. Level: G2 (First level). Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish. Optional for: M3, M3fs. Course coordinator: Christoffer Norberg,, Energivetenskaper. Prerequisites: MMV050 Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics. Recommended prerequisits: FMA435 Calculus in Several Variables, FMA062 Applied Mathematics. Assessment: Assessment of individual (written) home exercises, lab-reports, written and orally presented group exercise, and a final written examination, which consists of a theory part (without means of assistance) and an open-book problem-solving part. The course mark is determined from a total sum, which consists of the result from the passed written examination and (if any) bonus points from approved problem assignments and the group exercise. The graduation is determined from a special formula. Home page:

The purposes of this course are to provide extended understanding of technical and fundamental relations and phenomena, and to provide a general survey of problem-solving methods, within the field of basic fluid mechanics.
