- General concepts and definitions. The blood as a fluid.
- General state of deformation of flowing fluids.
- Continuity equation.
- Ideal fluidsν.
- Viscous fluids.
- Momentum equation, Navier-Stokes equations.
- Energy equation.
- Laminar boundary layers.
- Thermal boundary layers.
- Turbulent flow – Turbulence models.
- Special issues (FSI, BHD, MHD, FHD, Nanofluids, Multiphase
flow, Hydrodynamic stability etc).
At the end of this course the student should be able to
- To know the physical properties of the fluids.
- To know the types of fluids (Newtonian, non Newtonian,
Ideal), as well the types of the flow (laminar, turbulent,
steady, unsteady, rotational, irrotational, etc).
- To be able to study the equilibrium of fluids.
- To be able to study the movement of fluids.
- To be able to study the dynamic of fluids.
- To be able to apply the kinematics equations of fluids for
the solution of the flow problems.
- To be able to apply the dimensional analysis and similarity
for the study of the flow fields.
- To be able to define the physical problem, the mathematical
problem and to select the suitable method for the solution, and
after that to valuate and interpret the results.
- To be able to apply the basic laws of Fluid Mechanics to
