Hydrodynamics

ME-444

Lecturer(s) :

Gallaire François

Language:

English

Summary

Nondimensionalized Navier-Stokes equations result in a great variety of models (Stokes, Lubrification, Euler, Potential) depending on the Reynolds number. The concept of boundary layer enables us then to identify the different components of the hydrodynamic drag.

Content

The objective of this class is to describe and understand hydrodynamic flows by means of physical modeling. With help of dimensional analysis of the Navier-Stokes equations, several fluid models are introduced depending on the dominant physical effects: hydrostatics, capillarity, dissipation or inertia. This approach allows to describe important concepts like lift or wave dispersion and naturally leads to the concept of boundary layer so as to understand the appearance of drag,
