AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course will provide basic knowledge on fluid mechanics. In particular we will derive the equations of motion and will discuss some simple solutions. WE will also discuss how a turbulent flow can be studied with simplified models. In the second part of the course we will discuss free surface flows, with applications to river hydraulics (propagation of flood waves) and maritime engineering (basic notions of sea waves).

TEACHING METHODS

The course foresees 50 hours of lessons. During each lecture students will be asked to actively participate by solving exercises and by discussing the contents of the lecture.

The exam course consists of an oral discussion of the contents of the course. Students will have to show an understanding of the subject, the ability to synthesise and illustrate the main concepts and critically elaborate the acquired knowledge.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The main contents of the course are as follows:

    1. Basics of fluid mechanics

      • basics of kinematics and dynamics of fluids

      • the Navier-Stokes equations

      • some simple solutions of the Navier Stokes equations

      • irrotational flows

      • introduction to turbulent flows

    2. Free surface flows

      • models for free surface flows (3D, 2D, 1D)

      • flood waves

      • sea waves
