Autumn 18 for programme students

Intended learning outcomes

  • The student should be able to formulate mathematical models of fluid mechanical problems including heat exchange and make relevant approximations of fluid phenomena.
  • The student should apply these models for simple cases and interpret the results.
  • The student should gain some skill in carrying out fluid mechanical computations.

Course main content

The student should be able to

  • Derive the energy and heat transport equations for fluid mechanic problems.
  • Derive Kelvins circulation problem and the vorticity equation.
  • Master classical potential theory including Kutta-Jukowskis theorem.
  • Compute the flow field for a number of so called exact solutions.
  • Understand fluid mechanics problems at high Reynolds numbers.
  • Carry out a simple simulation of flow. 


Seven two-hour lectures, five two-hour exercises and a lab exercise. The lab exercise is presented at a two hour seminar.


No special prerequisites apart from mandatory courses within the basic F-program.
