ME 441 Advanced Fluid Mechanics

Partial differential equations governing the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy of Newtonian fluids are derived. Dimensional analysis is used to simplify the governing equations and in particular justify the assumption of incompressible flow. Exact solution of the Navier-Stokes equations are presented. Boundary layer approximations to the governing equations are derived, and both exact and integral solutions are obtained. Also offered for graduate-level credit as ME 541 and may be taken only once for credit.
