Teaching language



Study of the fundamentals of fluid flows. Application to pipe flow and flow over immersed bodies.

Learning outcomes and competences

Acquired knowledge that will allow:

- the hydrodynamic and energetic analysis and project of a fluid transport system;

- the analysis and quantification of the forces involved in the flow of a fluid around an immersed object.


Working method
