151-0125-00LHydrodynamics and Cavitation4 credits3GO. Supponen
AbstractThis course builds on the foundations of fluid dynamics to describe hydrodynamic flows, with a focus on interfacial and surface tension effects, lubrication and surface waves, and provides an introduction to cavitation: theory, measurement techniques, and industrial and medical applications.
ObjectiveThe main learning objectives of this course are:
1. Identify and describe dominant effects in liquid fluid flows through physical modelling.
2. Explain tension, nucleation and phase-change in liquids.
3. Describe hydrodynamic cavitation and its consequences in physical terms.
4. Recognise experimental techniques and industrial and medical applications for cavitation.
ContentThe course gives an overview on the following topics: hydrostatics, surface tension effects and capillarity, lubrication theory, surface waves, water hammer, tension in liquids, phase change. Cavitation: single bubbles (nucleation, dynamics, collapse), cavitating flows (attached, cloud, vortex cavitation). Industrial and medical applications, and measurement techniques.
