  • WPF MAP-O from SEM 1

Prerequisites / Organizational information

  • Downloads zu der Vorlesung sind auf der Instituts-Homepage zu finden / downloads to the lecture are find on the institute-homepage


  • Motivation, history organization of the lecture

  • Introduction, continuum, pressure, surface tension

  • Scalars, vectors and tensors

  • Fluid statics and buoyancy

  • Governing equations: Integral analysis of fluid flow

  • Governing equations: Differential analysis of fluid flow

  • Spcial forms of governing equations

  • Similitude, dimensional analysis, and modeling

  • Solutions of basic internal and external flows

  • Applied examples of the course material

The Students
  • will learn the mathematical fundamentals of integral and differential modeling fluid flows

  • can classify different types of fluid flow phenomena and derive the necessary non-dimensional parameters

  • can simplify and utilize mathematical models for the solution of different types of flows

  • have the chance to see the direct application of the content in the research and development work conducted at LSTM-Erlangen
