Summary

 

Fluid Mechanics I - CIVE40008

Role

Course Leader

Energy Systems - CIVE97068

Aims

The aims of this module are to:

  • Practically apply the taught material from all the modules.
  • Gain a wider understanding of engineering design.
  • Prepare students for working in industry.

 

Role

Course Leader

Buoyancy Driven Flows - CIVE97063

Aims

The aims of this module are to:

  • provide a description of the coupled atmosphere ocean system and how each system forces, and is forced by the, other
  • understand the roles of wind forcing and buoyancy fluxes in the atmosphere and ocean boundary layer and calculate momentum air-to-sea fluxes
  • describe wave spectra and their evolution due to wind forcing and wave breaking
  • introduce the role of the Earth’s rotation in geophysical fluid dynamics.
 

Role

Course Leader

Fluid Mechanics for the Built Environment - CIVE97159

Aims

Our urban landscapes are becoming increasingly complex and populated, presenting broad-ranging challenges regarding the sustainability and resilience of cities and buildings. In the design and operation of healthy, energy efficient buildings, understanding the interaction between heat flow, air flow, urban form and human activity is crucial. These topics are increasingly active areas of research and industry in relation to the design of a sustainable built environment.

This module aims to equip students with techniques and understanding that is necessary for the prediction, design and control of flow systems in the built environment. With an emphasis on problem-solving techniques, a focus of the module will be practical design and operational problems.
