# Undergraduate Course: Fluid Mechanics (Mechanical) 4 (MECE10004)

 School School of Engineering College College of Science and Engineering Credit level (Normal year taken) SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate) Availability Available to all students SCQF Credits 10 ECTS Credits 5 Summary This course introduces concepts that go beyond the 'one-dimensional' treatment of flows in ME2 Fluid Mechanics. The linking theme is the generation of fluid forces on the surfaces of structures, typified by the lift and drag forces on an aerofoil. Course description Not entered

 On completion of the course, students should be able to: 1. describe the flowfield round a typical body immersed in a flow 2. explain how lift and drag forces arise from the interaction the body and flow 3. define and explain the significance of circulation, vorticity, transition, separation 4. use simple potential flow models 5. knowledge of the concept of turbulence and boundary layer 6. define the various forms of boundary layer thickness, explain their significance, and derive their values from given velocity profiles 7. use the von Karman equation to obtain quantitative solutions for laminar and turbulent boundary layers with uniform external flows 9. describe methods of boundary layer control
