About Course

In this Fluid Mechanics II course, the students will learn the fundamental principles of inviscid, incompressible two-dimensional flow (in cartesian and rotational reference frames), irrotational flow, vorticity, velocity potentials, stream functions, streamlines, and how to build flows using classical potential flow solutions to Laplace’s equation. Finally the line vortex, and flow around a cylinder with circulation will be presented to give students the basic principles of “lift”.

During the rest of the course, students will be introduced to one-dimensional compressible flow through the nozzles and pipes. Topics in Fluid Mechanics II  covered will include: critical states, choked flow, normal shocks, Fanno flow, Rayleigh flow finishing with the two-dimensional compressible flow, and oblique shocks. The final part of the course will consider fundamentals of flow in open channels including critical flow and the hydraulic jump.
