Real External Flows

This course provides an overview of external flows, a branch of fluid mechanics that looks at situations where an object is moving in a fluid or the fluid is flowing over a stationary object. We will begin by analyzing the forces that are exerted by the fluid on the object. We will then talk about flow separation and free shear flows such as jets wakes and mixing layers. By thoroughly understanding the behavior of external flows, engineers can design fuel efficient aircrafts, automobiles and high speed trains.
