OVERVIEW

Advanced course on fluid mechanics.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES (FURTHER INFO)

The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge necessary to address the study of motion of bodies in  viscous fluids. The course describes the equations for the motion of fluids, as well as relevant models for  marine hydrodynamics.

Teaching methods

frontal lectures
