Theoretical and Applied Fluid Mechanics

We will introduce basic concepts of flow of fluids. We will discuss conservation laws and constitutive  equations. We will derive the Navier-Stokes equations, and study its exact and approximate solutions. Last, we will introduce the theory of hydrodynamic stability and then discuss turbulent flows. Throughout the course we will discuss a wide spectrum of flows from nature and engineering.
