# Fluid Mechanics

7.5 ECTS creditsInstruction is in the form of lectures, calculation exercises and laboratory work.

Course emphasis is on the calculation of stationary force in still and flowing Newtonian fluids. Applications can concern determining forces on smooth and curved surface emerged in fluid, forces generated by flow through curved pipes, by contraction and expansion and by the propulsion of watercraft.

The course includes the following components:

- Newton's laws and basic vector algebra

- Description of fluid properties such as density, viscosity and property dependance on temperature

- The concept of control volume

- The pressure concept

- Techniques of measuring static pressure on plane and curved surface

- Surface tension

- Momentum flux

- The no-slip concept

- Measuring drag and lift force

- Shear stress and shear stress velocity
