Advanced
Fluid Dynamics This class will cover the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, with a focus on inviscid flow. Upon completion of the class, students will have obtained the following: A sound physical understanding of the fluid mechanics; the ability to use vector calculus to solve problems in fluid mechanics; an understanding of the fundamental kinematics and conservation equations; and the ability to analyze a variety of flows, both compressible and incompressible.

Professor Jonathan P. Rothstein Office hours: Fridays 2:303:30PM; Wednesday 4:005:00PM http://www.ecs.umass.edu/mie/faculty/rothstein/courses.html Wilcox, Basic Fluid Mechanics, Fifth Ed., DCW Industries, 2013 The course grade will be based on the following: A set of homework problems will be assigned roughly once a week during
lectures. You should work through these problems carefully as they are
essential for your learning of the material. The problems will be typically
collected and graded on Tuesdays. [homework solutions
