COURSE INFORMATION
Open or CloseThis course is intended for graduate students wishing to have deep understanding in viscous flow and boundary layer. In this course, it starts with basic properties of fluid and derivation of basic equations for simple viscous flow problems. Student also will be introduced the boundary condition for viscous flow problems. Then, the derivation of basic equation of viscous flow regarded to conservation of mass, conservation of momentum and energy equation will be introduced. After that, a set of equations based from the conservation of momentum were used to solve Couette flow and Poiseuille flow. Finally, applying the momentum equation to solve boundary layer related engineering problems and incompressible turbulent mean flow problems.
 Derive basic equation of viscous flow regarded to conservation of mass, momentum and energy equations.
