The course aims at creating a fundamental understanding of fluid mechanics. A comprehensive treatment of the fundamental equations is followed by application to different types of flows. In particular laminar and turbulent flow for internal and external flow situations, respectively. The course also includes an introduction to numerical methods as well as introduction to turbulence modelling.
After the course the student should be able to apply the governing equations on classical flow cases (eg Couette flow). The student should be able to solve a variety of flow cases using appropriate numerical methods as well as having a fundamental understanding about the properties of these governing equations

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.
