Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course will focus on advanced topics in fluid mechanics. External lecturers invited by the Linne FLOW Centre at KTH will introduce state-of-the-art theories and techniques.

Previous courses/summer schools focused on flow control, turbulent boundary layers, low Mach-number aero-acoustics in confined flows, Micro and complex fluids.

Intended learning outcomes *

The student shall acquire knowledge on specialized topics in fluid mechanics directly from world-renowned experts in the area.
The final project will allow the student to use the new knowledge to solve practical problems.

Course Disposition

Lectures are typically held during one week, from 3 to 6 hours lecture per day. Students will perform the final project alone or in pairs.

The course is composed of two of these one-week courses.

The new organization at KTH and the funding from VR directly aimed to Graduate Schools opened the possibility to have several highly specialized courses during the typical PhD time. Therefore the need to introduce this course, giving credits that the students can use towards the final degree in addition to the other PhD courses regularly given at KTH.

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites *

Participants should be enrolled in a PhD programme related to fluid mechanics, and have passed one basic course in fluid mechanics: SG2214 or SG2225 at KTH.

Examination and completion

Grading scale *

P, F

Examination *

  • PRO1 - Project work, 4.0 credits, Grading scale: P, F
  • PRO2 - Project work, 3.5 credits, Grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade *

The final project will be performed under the supervision of the teacher/teachers. Students are supposed to hand in a final report about the project that will be examined by the examinator/director of Studies of the FLOW Graduate School. Two such projects are required to obtain 7,5 ECTS.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
