Course: ME 490. Fluid Dynamics (3)
Prerequisite: ME 390. Second-semester fluids course with applications to systems of engineering interest. Potential flows, boundary layers, duct flows, lubrication theory, lift and drag. 1-dimensional compressible flow with area change, friction, heating/cooling, normal shock waves, oblique shock waves and Prandtl-Meyer expansions. Both numerical and analytical solution techniques are explored. Available for graduate credit.
