Experimental Methods in Fluid Mechanics the complete guide in 2020

  • Course level: Beginner

Description

This Experimental method in Fluid Mechanics (FMs) course deals with the experimental techniques in (FMs). One part of the course focuses on different techniques and challenges associated with the measurement of flow features.

Another part of the course has an emphasis on the statistical analysis of experimental data. Thus, this course would provide an understanding of several experimental methods in (FMs) and would unveil hypotheses concerning the cause-and-effect relationships. It represents the most valid approach to the solution of theoretical advancement in the field.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Undergraduate students of Mechanical/Chemical/Aerospace Engg. (5th semester onwards) and postgraduate students specializing in the thermofluids/Fluid Mechanics/Aerospace/Automobiles; industry personnel associated with Fluid Machinery/automobile and aerospace engineering; faculty members associated with Mechanical/Chemical/Aerospace Engg.
