 FLUID MECHANICS MMV211
Credits: 7,5. Grading scale: TH. Cycle: G2 (First Cycle). Main field: Technology. Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish. Optional for: F4, F4bem, F4bs, Pi4, Pi4bs. Course coordinator: Christoffer Norberg, Christoffer.Norberg@energy.lth.se, Energy Sciences. Prerequisites: FMEA05 Engineering Mechanics - Statics and Particle Dynamics. Recommended prerequisits: FMA420 Linear Algebra, FMA430 Calculus in Several Variables. Assessment: Assessment of individual (written) home exercises, lab-reports, 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. The graduation is determined from a special formula. Further information: Tutorials and lab sessions in English. Home page: http://www.energy.lth.se.

Aim
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.

Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must

• be able to define shortly and/or clarify certain basic concepts, phenomena and measurement techniques in fluid mechanics

• have a comprehension of and be able to account for at some detail some basic and more advanced fluid relations

• have a comprehension of the mechanisms of flow resistance and flow-induced forces considering technical aero- and hydrodynamic design

Skills and abilities
For a passing grade the student must

• be able to assess reliability and accuracy of input data and calculated results

• be able to apply control volume analysis of the balances of mass and linear momentum, for stationary flow conditions

• be able to accomplish a complete dimensional analysis of a given dimensional problem

• be able to carry out elementary analysis of fluid drag and lift on immersed bodies, one- and two-dimensional compressible flow and one-dimensional open-channel flow, and a detailed fluid analysis of simple and multiple-pipe systems, at stationary, one-phase, incompressible conditions

Judgement and approach
For a passing grade the student must

• be able to demonstrate written communication skills that are well-structured, learning-oriented and illustrative (written examination, problem-solving and lab reports)
