2.26 Advanced Fluid Dynamics

Class Info

Fundamentals of fluid dynamics intrinsic to natural physical phenomena and/or engineering processes. Discusses a range of topics and advanced problem-solving techniques. Sample topics include brief review of basic laws of fluid motion, scaling and approximations, creeping flows, boundary layers in high-speed flows, steady and transient, similarity method of solution, buoyancy-driven convection in porous media, dispersion in steady or oscillatory flows, physics and mathematics of linearized instability, effects of shear and stratification. In alternate years, two of the following modules will be offered: I: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics of Coastal Waters, II: Capillary Phenomena, III: Non-Newtonian Fluids, IV: Flagellar Swimming.

This class has 18.085, and 2.25 as prerequisites.

2.26 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by R. Stocker, T. R. Akylas and G. H. McKinley.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 5-134.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
