Du vil få en reduksjon i antall studiepoeng (som oppgitt under), dersom du avlegger eksamen i dette emnet og har bestått følgende emne(r) fra før av:

SMN6197 Fluid Mechanics 5 stp

Course content

Introduction to Fundamental of Fluid Mechanics: fluid characteristics, elementary fluid dynamics, fluid kinematics, differential analysis of fluid flow, flow over immersed bodies, lift & drag, differential analysis of fluid flow, dimensional analysis, similitude & modelling, viscous flow in pipes, turbomachines and ventilation & pressure distribution in buildings.

Student project - Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD): The students are going to investigate a fluid flow problem using numerical simulations and to make the necessary documentation and reporting from the project.

Topic for student project will selected by the students themselves and report-format will be given by lecturer.

Students have to pass the student project prior to the exam.


Objectives of the course

After passing this course the student should have obtained the following learning outcome:

Knowledge and understanding

The student shall have the knowledge and understanding about;

  • Fluid Mechanics and how basic equations for fluid flow can be derived (Bernoulli, Navier Stokes, Energy Equation), which equations can be used to solve practical problems in various flow situations.
  • how laboratory and numerical models can describe complex flow fields.

Skills

The student should be able to;

  • see the connection between basic equations and solution of practical flow problems.
  • identify which problems can be computed with simplified approaches and which cases that need a more advance approach/knowledge.
  • compute or model basic fluid flow problem and perform reporting from the project.

Competence

  • The student will manage to apply theoretical concepts and terminology of Fluid Mechanics in analysis and solution of practical fluid flow problems.
