This course introduces the concepts of not only turbulent flows but also multi-phase flows, electromagnetic fluids, and functional 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.
Most of the flows are in a turbulent flows and the nature of the flow differs greatly depending on whether it is in a laminar flow state or a turbulent flow state. For example, the pressure loss of the flow in the pipe also differs greatly.
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 turbulent flows.
2) Explain the concept, characteristics and application of multi-phase flows.
3) Explain the concept, characteristics and application of electromagnetic fluids.
4) Explain the concept, characteristics and application of functional fluids.
