Provides advanced fluid mechanics concepts and their application in a range of civil and environmental engineering contexts. This course lays the foundation for subsequent environmental modelling and hydrological courses studied in the third year.
A1 To provide students with a thorough knowledge of the theoretical background and methods of fluid mechanics.
A2 To expose students to a range of applications of fluid mechanics.
A3 To provide students with the necessary skills to analyse fluid systems.
A4 To provide students with basic skills in experimental laboratory work.
A5 To improve basic reporting skills of the students
