|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
|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.
