Syllabus
Prerequisites: Analytical and Stochastic Mathematical Methods for Engineering; Introduction to Partial Differential Equations; Continuum Mechanics and Dynamical Systems.
Target skills and knowledge: Introduce the students to advanced topics in fluid mechanics and its modeling
Examination methods: Oral examination and discussion of homeworks
Assessment criteria: Completeness and orderliness of essay; clarity of exposition; rigour in using the technical terminology. The level of correspondence to these criteria will determine the graduation of the judgment and, consequently, the final mark.
Course unit contents: Navier-Stokes equations; scaling and relevant dimensionless groups; solution procedures. Low intermediate and high Reynolds number flows. Hydrodynamic stability and transition to turbulence. Turbulence closure models. Shallow water equations. Sediment Balance and relevant morphodynamic equations. Conservation equation for passive tracers.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Frontal teaching and practical exercises, that the student has to further develop and deepen with his study.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lesson Notes and books for deepening the personal knowledge.
