Credits: 3


Prerequisite: Must have completed partial differential equations at the level of MATH 462; or permission of ENGR-Mechanical Engineering department.
Formerly: ENME651.
Equations governing the conservation of mass, momentum, vorticity and energy in fluid flows. Low Reynolds number flows. Boundary layers. The equations are illustrated by analyzing a number of simple flows. Emphasis is placed on physical understanding to facilitate the study of advanced topics in fluid mechanics.
