UUM 511  Viscous Flow
Course Objectives
We first develop the governing equations. Next, we nondimensionalize these equations identifying important nondimensional parameters such as Reynolds number, Mach number, Prandtl number and the ratio of specific heats. Next, some exact solutions to NavierStokes equations are given.
Course Description
We first develop the governing equations. Next, we nondimensionalize these equations identifying important nondimensional parameters such as Reynolds number, Mach number, Prandtl number and the ratio of specific heats. Next, some exact solutions to NavierStokes equations are given.
An approximation to the governing equations called the boundary layer approximation, developed by Prandtl is next described. It is shown that this theory may be used to compute boundary layer characteristics such as boundary layer growth, skin friction and can identify where separation will first occur.
The course ends with a discussion of transition when, where and how it occurs. Empirical methods for identifying transition are presented followed by a brief overview of turbulent flows.
