In this course, it is intended to give the students clear physical concepts about the ‘ambiguous’ fluid mechanics. Although indispensable, minimal mathematical formulations are employed; instead, typical examples of application and physical interpretation will be introduced. Ultimately, the students are encouraged to develop engineering sense to create practical usage of fluid mechanics. The course will be taught in English.
For undergraduate students who have studied Fluid Dynamics, the objective of this class is to get accustumed with a class given in English. For those who have not studied, it is to study the basics of Fluid Dynamics.
