MIA 503E  Advanced Fluid Dynamics
Course Objectives
1 Knowledge in the key areas of viscous fluid mechanics and use this knowledge in the solution of engineering problems of interest.
2 A logical basis as an introduction to a further course in turbulent and compressible flows.
Course Description
Basic concepts, definitions. Flow kinematics. Conservation equations of viscous flows. Dimensionless form of governing equations, dimensionless parameters in viscous flows.
