Prerequisites and co-requisites
1. Fundamental concepts: Introduction to fluids; characteristic lines, mass flow and volume flow; thermodynamic properties of a fluid. 2. Stratification and turbulence 3. Control volume: conservation of mass, conservation of linear momentum, conservation of energy 4. Differential equations: Local balance, continuity equation, Euler equation, friction law, Navier Stokes equation, equation Bernoulli. 5. Applications: Free surface flow and flow in pipes
Introduction to Environmental and Hydraulic Fluid Mechanics. Flows in rivers, reservoirs and estuaries. Dams, Turbines and pipes flows. Establishment and rationale of the Navier-Stokes equations
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
The student is expected to deepen basic knowledge on static and dynamic fluids of ideal and real fluids, including rotation
Teaching methodologies and assessment
Theoretical and theoretical-practical classes with applications that complement each other. RULES OF EVALUATION: Continuous Assessment - Mini tests distributed during the semester with a maximum duration of 1 hour. The final mark for continuous assessment is given by the arithmetic mean of all written tests without a minimum grade. Requirements for approval of UC by continuous assessment, to obtain an average final grade of mini tests greater than or equal to 10 values. Assessment by Exam - Students not approved by Continuous Assessment can take a final exam in the 1st and / or 2nd periods. Requirements for approval of the UC by exam obtain a final exam grade equal or superior to 10. For grades of 89, a supplementary oral test is provided.
