## 20801845 - ADVANCED HYDRODYNAMICS

The objective of the course of Advanced Hydrodynamics is the to reach a good knowledge of the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and to introduce the student to several advanced topics (industrial hydro- and fluid dynamics, non newtonian fluid mechanics, bio-fluid mechanics, etc.). At the end of the course, the students will be able to make numerical calculations by using a computer, in order to simulate the evolution of technically interesting hydrodynamic phenomena.

Programme

Kinematics of fluids: analysis of the deformation in the neighbourhood of a point. Vorticity and related theorems. Decomposition of the velocity fields. The governing equations of Fluid Mechanics: mass, momentum and energy budget. Hydraulic models: the 1D scheme. Application to the analysis of unsteady pipe flows. The method of characteristics. Computational methods for the 1D scheme. The Navier-Stokes equation and its approximations in Hydrodynamics: low Reynolds number flows, lubrication theory, boundary layer theory, natural and forced convection, the Boussinesque approximation. Ideal flows. Turbulence for uncompressible fluids.
