The course is administrated by

Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology

Type of course

The course can be taken as a single course.

Course contents

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.
