Course Objectives

Enhanced understanding of fluid mechanics, including the equations of motion in differential form, and turbulence focusing on:
 Detailed understanding of RTT and differential equations for conservation of mass, momentum and energy
 Non dimensionlisationof the governing equations, and from these extract the dimensionless parameters that determine the flow field.
 Approximate and exact solutions of NavierStokes equations
 Derive the boundary layer equations and show how to obtain exact and approximate integral solutions.
