MEE711 Boundary Layer Theory

[3–0, 3 cr.]

This course covers the effect of viscosity in near-wall flows. Topics include continuum fluid mechanics, exact solutions of Navier-Stokes equations, creeping flows, laminar and turbulent boundary layers, exact and approximate solutions of the steady state boundary layer equations, boundary layer control, stability of laminar flows, transition, fundamentals of turbulent flows.
