This unit provides an introduction to fluid mechanics, the study of the behaviour and motion of fluids, both liquids and gases. Applications of fluid mechanics range from studying the haemodynamics of blood flow to climate and ocean modelling, from micro-fluidics in power cells to the dynamics of large gaseous planets and stars. The unit deals with the physics of fluid flow (the underlying principles and theory) as well as the engineering aspects (application to everyday problems).
Where calculators are permitted in examinations, it must be selected from an approved list, which can be accessed from the Further Information link below.
