Fluid Mechanics

Contents and Volume

Fluid Mechanics exists in lots of natural phenomena and plays an important role in technology and engineering. In this lecture, the fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics are discussed. The topics are: Properties of the Fluids, Hydrostatics, Hydrodynamics (Bernoulli’s equation), Momentum equation, Frictional Pipe Flows and Gas Dynamics. The contents of the course are completed by exercises which will be held parallel to the lectures.

Teaching Plan

The lecture and exercises take place in every winter semester:

  • Lecture: 2 hours per week in the semester,
  • Plenar Exercises: an hour per week in the semester,
  • Exercises: an hour per week in the semester.

The course is passed if student attends at the final written exam of 180 min. duration and do it successfully. An additional exam is offered in the examination period of the summer semester.

Schedule in Winter Semester 2019/2020

The Lecture as well as the Plenar Exercise begin in calendar week 42, see Table below.
