The course covers the theoretical fundamentals and flow physics, to give a deeper understanding of technical flows. In addition to the basic equations of fluid mechanics and exact solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations, laminar and turbulent flows, and the boundary layer theory are the main topics of the lecture. Furthermore, potential flows, the similarity theory, and compressible flows will be treated.

  • Derivation of the basic equations of fluid mechanics from tensor mechanics and thermodynamics
  • Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids
  • Boundary layer theory
  • Special forms of flow equations for certain types of flows (e.g. boundary layers, incompressible, frictionless, low Reynolds numbers, natural convection)
  • One- and multi-dimensional compressible flows, method of characteristics
  • Potential flow (2D and 3D)
  • Similarity mechanics and dimensional analysis
  • Introduction to turbulent flows
