Course description and aims

This course introduces the concepts of functional fluids, multi-phase flows, and electromagnetic fluids whose flows are not single-phase Newtonian fluid flows without external forces and cannot be dealt with the standard fluid mechanics, and covers the fundamentals to utilize them in the wide engineering fields.
Generally, fluid flows are not only single-phase Newtonian fluid flows without external forces which can be dealt with the standard fluid mechanics, but also complex flows such as functional fluids, multi-phase flows and electromagnetic fluids, and engineers are required to have the knowledge to solve many kinds of engineering problems. This course focuses on the functional fluids, multi-phase flows and electromagnetic flows and covers the knowledge from the fundamentals to the application.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain the concept, characteristics and application of functional fluids.
2) Explain the concept, characteristics and application of multi-phase flows.
3) Explain the concept, characteristics and application of electromagnetic fluids.

Keywords

Functional fluids, multi-phase flows, electromagnetic fluids, fluid mechanics

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

In each class, concepts, characteristics and application of functional fluids, multi-phase flows and electromagnetic fluids are introduced.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Non-Newtonian fluids and functional fluids (electro-rheological fluids, magneto-rheological fluids, etc.) Understand the non-Newtonian fluids and the functional fluids
Class 2 Electric field driven flows (electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis), application of functional fluids Understand the electric field driven flows and the application of functional fluids
Class 3 Gas-liquid two-phase flows, boiling two-phase flows, and vapor flows Understand the gas-liquid two-phase flows, the boiling two-phase flows, and the vapor flows

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)

None required.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Non required.
