Course Aim
When completing the course you should:

· Master the equation of fluid mechanics.

· Know how to approximate these equations for a number of cases in fluid mechanics.

· Be able to break-down complex fluid mechanical problems into simpler cases and draw conclusions on the complex problem from analysis of the simpler cases.

Contents
Physical properties of fluids. Kinematics of the flow field. Equations governing the motion of a fluid. Flow of a uniform incompressible viscous fluid. Flow at large Reynolds number effect of viscosity. Irrotational flow theory. Test cases.

Realization
You will be assigned certain chapters in the book and problems related to these. You will then present the contents of the chapters and the solutions to the problems for the teachers and the other students. In addition each student will be assigned to real fluid mechanical problems to which they should reflect during their presentations. Occasionally lectures are held in order to introduce a subject or a methodology.

Examination
Each presentation is examined. These presentations are obligatory.

Examiner
Staffan Lundström

Literature. Valid from Autumn 2009 Sp 1 (May change until 10 weeks before course start)
