Course aims

Students will be introduced to the application of conservation laws and force balance under steady and unsteady fluid flow. They will apply the obtained knowledge of general mechanics while learning about the continuum mechanics principles. They will conduct simple experiments to understand the theory. Having obtained the fundamental knowledge, they will be able to solve practical fluid flow mechanics problems, pressures and pressure forces under steady and unsteady flow in particular, and they will be introduced to more complex engineering problems solutions.
