10 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: The module is designed to consolidate and extend the students' understanding of basic fluid flow properties, fluid flows, and applying analysis techniques to solve engineering fluids problems. The module will cover the use of both integral control volume and differential analysis techniques. These will be applied to a range of simple engineering fluid systems, Newtonian laminar analysis will be applied to internal flows. The boundary layer will be introduced and related to the concepts of drag and heat transfer. The concepts of compressible nozzle flow, choking and shock waves will be covered. Sub-sonic and sonic compressible flow will be introduced. The students will also be introduced to computational fluid dynamics using FLUENT and given hands-on experience.
