This module continues the study of Newtonian fluid mechanics gegun in MA34310. It also includes introductions to the theories of solid mechanics and Rheology.
To continue the study of Newtonian Fluid Mechanics by discussing Boundary-layer Theory and Lubrication Theory. To show the subtle differnces when Solid Mechanics is considered. Finally, to introduce the student to the very difficult but important concepts of viscoelasticity.
On completion of this module, a student should be able to:
1. CONTINUATION OF NEWTONIAN FLUID MECHANICS: Including an introduction to Lubrication Theory and the Science of Flight.
2. INTRODUCTION TO SOLID MECHANICS: Including the derivation of Hooke's Law.
3. GENERAL RHEOLOGY: Including a detailed consideration of viscoelasticity. Industrial applications.
