On completion of this module, a student should be able to:
apply approximate techniques, like those associated with boundary-layers and lubrication, to the solution of flow problems;
explain the theory of the Science of Flight;
derive Hooke's Law and apply it to problems in Solid Mechanics;
describe the concept of viscoelasticity and the industrial applications in which it arises.
This module continues the study of Newtonian fluid mechanics begun 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 differences when Solid Mechanics is considered. Finally, to introduce the student to the very difficult but important concepts of viscoelasticity.
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.
