On completion of this module, a student should be able to:
1. describe the fundamental concepts of continuum mechanics and, in particular, explain the difference between solids and liquids.
2. make use of a tensorial framework, and explain its advantages.
3. derive the governing equations for a Newtonian viscous fluid and solve them exactly for some simple flows.
This module provides an introduction to Newtonian Fluid mechanics.
To introduce the basic concepts of solid and fluid mechanics and to set up the governing equations for a Newtonian viscous fluid. To provide a number of exact solutions of these governing equations.
2. DERIVATION OF THE NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS FOR NEWTONIAN VISCOUS FLUIDS (such as water and air).
3. SOLUTION OF CLASSICAL FLOW PROBLEMS.
4. APPLICATIONS TO THE SCIENCE OF FLIGHT AND INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES SUCH AS LUBRICATION.
