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.
On completion of this module, a student should be able to:
1. INTRODUCTION TO CONTINUUM MECHANICS: Including the distinction between Solids and Fluids.
2. DERIVATION OF THE NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS FOR NEWTONIAN VISCOUS FLUIDS: Like water and air.
3. SOLUTION OF FLOW PROBLEMS AND APPLICATIONS TO THE SCIENCE OF FLIGHT.
