Mechanics of Fluids II

Pre-requisite: ME 451

Navier-Stokes equations. Two-dimensional irrotational (potential) flow; the stream function and velocity potential simple flows and their superposition. Boundary layer theory; Von Karman’s integral momentum equation; laminar and turbulent boundary layers, flow separation and wake, drag and lift. Compressible fluid flow; compressibility effects, isentropic flow through variable area ducts, plane normal shock waves. Flow with heat exchange and flow with friction.
