Additional Languages English

The course acquaints students with the following topics: Physical and mechanical properties of ideal and real fluids, hydrostatic pressure, head, hydrostatic forces on plane figures; Kinematics and dynamics of ideal and real fluid flow - Euler's equations of motion, Continuity equation and Navier-Stockes equations; Principles of conservation of mass, energy and momentum. Theory of one dimensional flow; Energy (Bernoulli's) equation for inviscid fluid. The following problems - potential flow, stream and potential functions, drag and lift forces on streamlined bodies are also considered.
