Syllabus Description

Notes collected from Dr. Zvi Rusak's introductory graduate Fluid Mechanics class. Collected readings, lecturer and student notes with assignment prompts, and graded solutions where available here.

Taught by Prof. Rusak of RPI in the fall of 2019. Following are handouts and notes collected to honor him.

An introductory graduate course in fluid mechanics. Topics include: continuum hypothesis; perfect gas and departures from perfect gas; vectors and tensors; conservation laws for a continuum: mass momentum and energy; constitutive theory for fluids; viscosity and molecular transport; compressible Navier-Stokes equations; kinematics of the flow field: vorticity, streamlines; incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and their applications: Poiseuille flow, low Reynolds number flows, flows at large Reynolds number, boundary layers, external flows: flow stability and introduction to the theory of turbulence
