Course Description The fundamentals of fluid dynamic phenomena and related models are given in this course. In the first part of the course, the laws and the physical and mathematical models governing the dynamics of fluids are derived on the basis of the knowledge supplied by previous courses in the fields of physics, mathematics, theoretical mechanics, numerical methods and applied thermodynamics. Starting from the most general mathematical model of the Navier-Stokes equations, which is analyzed and discussed in details, the classical simplified models of fluid dynamics are derived, based on dynamical approximations criteria, assumptions on the rheological and thermodynamic state equations of the specific fluid and flow conditions, or properties of the flow domain and boundary conditions. Steady and unsteady exact solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations, the Euler equations, the Prandtl's thin layer and the potential flow models are presented, the latter having particular impact on low speed aeronautical applications. The theoretical aspects of fluid dynamics are treated in constant touch with their practical, natural or industrial implications and supported by the physical insight supplied by the still unequalled films of the National Committee for Fluid Dynamics. Fellows will also be introduced to basic experimental techniques and will acquire capabilities in the prediction of the aerodynamic performances of airfoils.
