Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Explain and apply the concepts of mass, energy, and momentum balance, E1
  • Define , describe and apply the basic flow equations, such as the Navier-Stokes equations, AH14
  • Describe simplified governing equations, such as the Bernoulli or potential equations, their domain of validity and apply them in appropriate situations, AH15
  • Describe flow in simple geometries, such as over a flat plate, in a tube, or around a sphere or airfoil, AH9
  • Link flow behaviour with non-dimensional parameters (e.g. Reynolds and Mach numbers), AH2
  • Identify similarity laws and their use for dimensioning an experimental testbed, AH23
  • Describe the physical differences between laminar and turbulent flows, AH4

Transversal skills

  • Use a work methodology appropriate to the task.
  • Assess one's own level of skill acquisition, and plan their on-going learning goals.
