Synopsis:

The contents of the course is the introduction to mathematical methods in fluid dynamice. Concretely: mathematical modelling of fundamentals physical laws by means of partial differential equations, formulation of associated boundary or initial-boundary value problems for various type sof fluids as well as various type sof flows, properties and some speciál solutions of these problems.

Requirements:

Basic courses of calculus and differential equations (in the extent of the courses 01DIFR, 01MA1, 01MAA2-4, 01RMF held at the FNPE

CTU in Prague).

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Kinematice of fluids - the rate of deformation tensor, Reynolds? transport formula, compressible or incompressible flow, respectively fluid. 2. Volume and surface forces in the fluid, stress tensor. 3. Stokesian fluid and its special cases: ideal and Newtonian fluid. 4. Basic conservation laws (of mass, momentum, energy) and their mathematical modeling (equation of continuity, Euler and Navier-Stokes equations, equation of energy). 5. Second law of thermodynamics and Clausius-Duhem inequality. 6. Examples of simple solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations. 7. Laws of similarity. 8. Turbulent flows. 9. Boundary layer. 10. Basic qualitative properties of the Navier-Stokes equations - strong and weak solutions, questions of existence and uniqueness in steady and non-steady case.

Syllabus of tutorials:
Study Objective:

To learn basic principles of mathematical modelling in fluid dynamics, to learn and understand mathematical models of various type sof flows (compressible or incompressible, viscous or non-viscous, laminar or turbulent, etc.), to learn about basic methods and results in the field of qualitative properties of the Navier-Stokes equations.
