# Strömningslära Fluid Mechanics

## MMVF15, 6 credits, G2 (First Cycle)

Valid for: 2020/21
Decided by: PLED M
Date of Decision: 2020-03-26

## General Information

Elective for: F4, F4-bem, Pi4-bem
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish

## 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.

## Learning outcomes

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 and one- and two-dimensional compressible 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)

## Contents

Scope of fluid mechanics and fluid properties; integral relations for a control volume; differential relations for a fluid particle; dimensional analysis and flow similarity; viscous flow in ducts;  introduction to turbulence; boundary-layer flows; flow around slender and bluff bodies; compressible flow.

## Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
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 examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
