Unit Snapshot

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

describe how and why boundary layers form in real fluid flows, and how this affects the behaviour of real moving fluids

employ dimensional analysis, physical modelling and computational fluid dynamics to investigate simple fluid dynamics problems

analyse simple non-uniform and unsteady flows of incompressible fluids in open channels.
