Fluid Mechanics II

Course Summary

This course is based on 16.03-16.04 Fluid Mechanics made available by Massachusetts Institute of Technology: MIT OpenCourseWare under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.
This course covers the physical properties of a fluid and their consequence on fluid flow, expressed in terms of Mach and Reynolds numbers. Students are taught the conservation principles of mass, momentum, and energy for fluid flow and how to apply the basic mathematical tools that support fluid dynamics. They will learn the conceptual and quantitative models of inviscid, steady fluid flow over simple bodies (airfoils, wings) and in channels. This is a continuation of the course Fluid Mechanics. A few of the more important topics will be taken to a moderately advanced level in this course. (Video recordings of lectures are not available but this course includes a good set of lecture notes and course material)
