Teaching description

Knowledge of calculus (derivatives and integrals), algebra (basic vector and tensor operations), dynamics of a rigid body and thermodynamics

The course provides the fundamental understanding of the motion of a fluid. The conservation equations that describe the dynamics of a fluid are analyzed in the case of inviscid and viscous flows. During this process, a description of the main fluid properties is provided as well as the continuum assumption and the definition of Eulerian and Lagrangian frames of reference. The derived equations are used in order to describe the motion of fluid in canonical configurations such as the Poiseuille flow (flow between flat plates), the Couette flow (flow between flat plates in relative motion), and the Hagen-Poiseuille flow (flow inside a pipe). The forces exchanged between the fluid and an immersed body are analyzed by means of the potential flow theory and boundary layer theory. During this course, the Buckingham \pi theorem will be applied to canonical flows in order to derive a dimensionless description of the dynamics of the fluid. An outline about the main phenomena involving turbulence will also be provided.

Targeted fluid dynamics fundamentals: 

• main properties of a fluid, continuum vs particle description;
• the basic equations that describe the static, kinematics and dynamics of a fluid;
• the principal physical phenomena involved in the motion of a fluid;
• the main interactions between a fluid and an immersed body.

Every topic will be discussed and all the models derived on the blackboard.
