Fluid Dynamics - a.y. 2016/2017
Period (Year/Semester): III/I
Required/expected prior knowledge: General Physics, Mathematical Analysis II, rational Mechanics
Lecturers: Gennaro Cardone
Acquisition of the foundations of Fluid dynamics. Learn the use of elementary methods for the calculation of one-dimensional flows in incompressible and compressible regimes. Application of these methods to engineering problems of interest to the mechanical engineer.
