Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics
- Garant předmětu:
- Department of Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamics
This course aims to provide students with a solid understanding of the core principles of fluid mechanics and thermomechanics and the ability to apply this knowledge to basic problems in stage technology. By the end of the course, students will be able to comprehend and analyze basic quantities and relationships in fluid mechanics and thermomechanics, as well as to independently solve basic problems in this field using analytical, numerical, and experimental methods. The course will focus on practical applications of these principles in stage technology, with particular emphasis on cooling of stage technologies and environment, air flow in the stage and auditorium, simulation, remote monitoring, and management of this environment. Additionally, a part of the course will be dedicated to exploring ways to enhance the energy efficiency of stage technology operations.
