OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

The course aims to provide students with basic knowledge of fluid mechanics for the study of transport processes. During the course, several simple examples of practical interest will also be formulated and solved

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

The main objectives of the course are:
1. To provide the basic knowledge on fluid mechanics, as a starting point for the description of mass transport processes
2. to provide basic theoretical knowledge needed to better understand which are the most suitable models for the study of mass transport processes in different contexts

MODALITA' DIDATTICHE

The course includes lectures

PROGRAMMA/CONTENUTO

The course program can be mainly divided into two:
1. Fundamentals of fluid mechanics
in this part we will recall some basic principles of fluid mechanics and in particular: kinematic references. Dynamics of viscous fluids: Navier-Stokes.Fluido Ideal; Bernoulli's theorem; Vorticity dynamics; turbulent motions
2. Fundamentals of diffusion and dispersion processes
molecular diffusion: fundamentals, Fick law, fundamental solution, method of images, examples of applications; turbulent diffusion: fundamentals, tensor of turbulent diffusivity, examples of applications; Dispersion: foundations, theory of Taylor (dispersion in the ducts) and Elder (dispersion in free-surface currents);

ESAMI

MODALITA' D'ESAME

The exam involves the development of a training exercise based on the numerical simulation of a real case study and an oral exam on the course contents

MODALITA' DI ACCERTAMENTO

The oral test is intended to determine the level of understanding achieved by the student primarily on the foundation parts. The student must demonstrate that they know how to steer, especially in relations between the concepts explained in class. The questions will cover all of the material presented in class and often will request the ability to connect various topics
Exercise practice of numerical simulation will be used to assess the student's ability to apply critically the theoretical concepts explained during the course
