FSG3115 Applications of Fundamental Fluid Dynamics 7.5 credits

The course aims to give the research student knowledge about how different applied topics of basic fluid dynamics can be given to students through physical laboratory exercises. Furthermore it should give pedagogical experience by being an assistant with the education in the Fluid physics laboratory for students in the 1stand 2ndcycle.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course amount to that the research student is laboratory assistant and supervise students in at least three different laboratory exercises. The student will thereby get experience of different student bodies and the difficulties encountered of pedagogical and practical nature that can arise during a laboratory exercise. 

Intended learning outcomes

After completing this course the research student should be able to;

  • be able to, in a pedagogical way, supervise students through laboratory exercises, starting from introducing the theme and apparatus to analysing and reporting the results
  • understand how students at different levels perceive new physical phenomena and technical applications
  • give a seminar which present the experience as an assistant and give suggestions on improvements in one or several laboratory exercises both regarding execution and pedagogics. Also ideas for new exercises can be presented at the seminar.

Course disposition

In total at least 40 laboratories should be supervised, distributed on at least 10 occasions each for three different exercises.

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites

The course is suitable for research students in Engineering Mechanics. The research student together with the supervisor decides if the course should be part of the study plan. 

Recommended prerequisites

The course is suitable for research students in Engineering Mechanics.

Other requirements for final grade

An account for the expected number of laboratory supervision and a seminar, as detailed above

When the two above parts have been completed the research students applies to the examiner to be reported as pass on the course. The examiner checks if the amount of teaching, character and quality is sufficient to pass the course and that the seminar has been approved.
