ME 551 Advanced Fluid Mechanics

This course provides a continuation of the principal concepts and methods of fluid dynamics. Topics include mass conservation, momentum, and energy equations for continua, Navier-Stokes equations for viscous flows and its solution, similarity and dimensional analysis, boundary layers, potential and rotational flows, introduction to flow instability and transition to turbulence, and surface tension and surface tension driven flows.
