This is a joint course taught by Prof. F. Ballio and Prof. S. Malavasi
Programme of the course
The course is compound of two parts (theory + labs).
Teaching objectives for the whole course (parts 1+2) are:
- Phenomenological analysis of relevant processes in fluid dynamics
- Comparative analysis of alternative models in fluid dynamics
- Applicative examples at engineering scale
The theoretical section (part 1) comprehends:
- Fundamentals of continuum mechanics
- Ideal fluid model (Bernoulli's theorem)
- Viscous fluid model (Newtonian fluids)
- 1st Principle of thermo-dynamics (integral form) / energy interpretation of Bernoulli's theorem
- Turbulence in fluids: Reynolds-averaged equations, closure models
- Boundary layer: wall laws
- Fluid-structure interaction: flow around bodies, wakes
The Laboratory section (part 2) comprehends: Physical and Numerical Laboratories
The fluid dynamic processes are analyzed on the basis of demonstrations and laboratory measurements and / or experimental data provided to the students.
Type of processes:
- Fluid-Structure Interactions, bluff bodies (cylinder, sphere) immersed in a stady flow, fixed or oscillating bodies
- Interaction fluid / wall (velocity profiles on flat walls smooth and rough)
Quantities measured or provided (with nods to the techniques of measurement used) are: velocity/ pressure/forces/ displacements
Numerical simulation (CFD) of benchmark configurations; data analysis and post-processing of experimental and numerical data. Elements of numerical methods.
Possible configurations: Channel flow / Cylinder (2D / 3D) / Multi-hole plate (3D) /
Applications in complex cases
There will also be seminars on complex cases, numerical and / or experimental. We will consider the analysis of processes and their modeling. Possible topics: Multi-phase flows / Wave energy / Control Valves
