Introduction to fluid dynamics for Physics Students


Ideal Fluids (Equation of continuity, Euler's equation, Hydrostatics, Bernouli's equation, momentum and energy fluxes, circulation, potential flow, incompressible flow waves in fluids); Viscous fluids (Equations of motion, energy dissipation, flow in a pipe, small Reynolds numbers, laminar wake, damping waves); Navier-Stokes equations; Turbulence (Steady flow, rotary flow, instabilities of flows, fully developed turbulence); Boundary layers (Laminar layer, line of separation, turbulent boundary layer, drag); Heat transfer in fluids; Sound waves; Shock waves (Discontinuities, shock adiabatic, weak shocks); One-dimensional gas flow; Nonlinear equations for waves in fluids; basic notion if chaos in fluids.
