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.
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.
