Fluid Mechanics

Valid for: 2012/13

Decided by: Education Board 3

Date of Decision: 2012-04-25

Elective for: F4, F4-bs, F4-bem, Pi4, Pi4-bs

Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish

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

Competences and skills

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)

History and scope of fluid mechanics; integral relations for a control volume; differential relations for a fluid particle; dimensional analysis and flow similarity; viscous flow in ducts; measurement techniques; introduction to turbulence; boundary-layer flows; flow around slender and bluff bodies; potential flow; aerodynamic theory; compressible flow; open-channel flow

Grading scale: TH

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.

The number of participants is limited to: No

The course might be cancelled: If the number of applicants is less than 5.
