Fluid Mechanics-I: Course Outline (MAT 461)

Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics that studies the mechanics of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) and the forces on them.

Course Objective

The course will increase the basic level of the students in the field of fluid mechanics and will grow their knowledge from both mathematical point of view and also from application point of view. Also this course will help to those students who wish to undertake advance studies in fluid mechanics.

Course Contents

  • Constitutive equations;
  • Navier-Stoke’s equations;
  • Exact solutions of Navier-Stoke’s equations;
  • Steady unidirectional low;
  • Poiseuille flow;
  • Couette flow;
  • Unsteady unidirectional low;
  • Sudden motion of a plane boundary in a fluid at rest;
  • Flow due to an oscillatory boundary;
  • Equations of motion relative to a rotating system;
  • Ekman flow;
  • Dynamical similarity and the Reynold’s number;
  • Flow over a flat plate (Blasius’ solution);
  • Reynold’s equations of turbulent motion.
