Fluid Mechanics 1 - MECH40002


The aims of the ME1 Fluid mechanics course is to establish a strong foundation and understanding of elementary fluid mechanics, on which subsequent courses will build on. Emphasis is on fundamentals. After extablishing the basics of the mathematical description of fluids, fluid statics and dynamics are covered, the latter employing control volume analysis. The knowledge is put to application, particularly in the last part of the course on internal flows.

ECTS units: 5
