Fluid Mechanics

Content
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.

OPAL-Course Fluid Mechanics

Mastery Goals
Students acquire the basic knowledge necessary for understanding fluid mechanics and are able to apply it. They have a deepened understanding of detailed questions and are able to analyse fluid mechanical issues independently.

Admission Requirements
None, but a basic knowledge of mathematics and physics and a certain technical imagination are recommended.
The lectures and exercises are held in German.

Exam
The course is passed if the 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.

The course Fluid Mechanics will be held in digital form from 15.10.2020.

The lectures of the course Fluid Mechanics are held in compressed form as recorded and set to audio presentations. These presentations are made available to the participating students thematically step by step in the OPAL-Course Fluid Mechanics .

The plenar exercises of the fluid mechanics course take place in the form of video recordings with sound. These video recordings are also made available to the participating students thematically step by step in the OPAL-Course Fluid Mechanics .
The objectives of the plenar exercise are to briefly review the fundamentals and derivation of fluid mechanics equations from the lecture and, in particular, to teach the application of the equations found for the calculation of specific fluid mechanics problems.
The solution and calculation methods of these exercises are presented handwritten in digital form and explained via an audio track. The digital scripts of the hall exercises (pdf download in the  OPAL-Course) serve as support.

The exercises of the course Fluid Mechanics take place in the form of digital self-study. The digital exercises are made available to the participating students thematically step by step in the OPAL-Course Fluid Mechanics. The solution approaches, the detailed calculation methods and solutions of the exercises follow later, also in digital form (pdf download in the OPAL-Course).
The aim of the exercise is to enable the participating students to understand and solve fluid mechanics problems independently.
At the exercise dates of the individual exercise groups, digital consultations via the video conferencing program BigBlueButton will take place with the lecturer in order to briefly discuss the calculated exercise tasks and to briefly answer any open questions regarding the exercise complex. The access link to the webroom can be found in the OPAL-Course .
