Course Objectives

To introduce the foundations of fluid dynamics, various formulations of governing equations and their mathematical properties in order to establish a firm basis for other modules.

Learning Outcomes

Distinguish and analyse the governing equations of fluid dynamics in various formulations for compressible and incompressible viscous and inviscid flows.

Estimate the impact of different physical phenomena based on dimensional analysis.

Examine mathematical properties of governing equations and be able to critically evaluate correct boundary/initial value problems for various flows.
