Content and learning outcomes
Fundamental phenomena and concepts. Statistical methods. Shear-flow turbulence and the turbulent boundary layer. CFD models for turbulent flow. The theory of isotropic and homogeneous turbulence.
Intended learning outcomes
The primary aim of the course is to give the students an overview of turbulent flow and turbulence.
After completing the course a student should be able to;
- use statistical methods to describe and analyse turbulent flow,
- describe and explain the lengthscale structure of turbulence, and
- use an understanding of turbulence to describe the strengths and weaknesses of common CFD models for turbulent flow.
Literature and preparations
English B / English 6
SG2214 Fluid Mechanics, or equivalent.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 6.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, 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
Practical laboratory exercise; homework; and a written test or oral examination.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
