Syllabus
Prerequisites: Mathematical Analysis 1,2; Physics 1.
Target skills and knowledge: To set the methodological basis for the mechanics of the incompressible Newtonian fluids, for open channel flows and groundwater flows.
Examination methods: Written examination (an exercise on hydrostatic and an exercise on steady fluid dynamics) and oral examination.
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 judgement and, consequently, the final mark.
Course unit contents: Definitions and general properties of fluids. Equilibrium of fluids at rest; forces on immersed surfaces. Principles of conservation of mass and momentum, in integral and differential forms. Fluid dynamics: constitutive relation fro Newtonian viscous fluids; Navier-Stokes' equations. Flow at high Reynolds numbers: definition of perfect fluid; Euler's equation; Bernoulli theorem and relavant applications. Vorticity dynamics (basics). Potential flows (basics). Laminar flows: motion between parallel planes and in pipes. Turbulent flows: Reynolds' equations: turbulent flow in pipes. Laminar and turbulent boundary layers (basics). Flow resistance in pipes: hydraulically smooth and rough wall; continuous (Darcy-Weisbach, Gauckler-Strickler and Colebrook-White relations) and localized (Borda) energy dissipations. Pipe networcs (basics). Pumps and turbines. Altimetric problems in long pipes Unsteady incompressible flows in pipes (draining of a reservoir, adaptation time of a pipe, mass oscillations). Waterhammer (basics). Steady open channel flows: uniform flow; resistance formulas; specific head; total force; subcritical and supoercritical flows; hydraulic jump;gradually varied flow profile. Stationary groundwater flows.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Frontal teaching and practical exercises
