Description "Fluid
Mechanics" is a vast area and touches many aspects in our day today
lives. At the academic level, only fraction of this course is covered. In
undergraduate level of the courses, students get familiar with fundamental
aspects, governing equations of fluid flow and their application to simple
flow problems. Extending the depth of knowledge further, the course
"Advanced Fluid Mechanics" has been designed and framed to express
the concepts in a welldefined and vivid manner. The topics have been chosen
from the broad areas of "Fluid Mechanics" emphasizing mathematical
formulation of various flow problems. Attempt has been made to include
advanced theories so that students can expertise and pursue research in the
relevant areas. This course surveys the principal concepts and methods of
fluid dynamics. Topics include mass conservation, momentum, and energy
equations for continua, the NavierStokes equation for viscous flows,
lubrication theory, boundary layers and separation, circulation and vorticity
theorems, potential flow, an introduction to turbulence, lift and drag,
surface tension and surface tension driven flows. The class assumes students
have had two prior undergraduate classes in the area of fluid mechanics.
Emphasis is placed on being able to formulate and solve typical problems of
engineering importance. [Reference: from “MIT online open
