torna indietro - *go back*

This is a joint course taught by Prof. Ballio and Prof. 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)
- 1
^{st}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 Laboratory**

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 laboratory**

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
