Course detail

Hydromechanics

FAST-DR71Acad. year: 2017/2018

The study includes mainly flow of newton fluids, partly also problems of unnewton fluids flow. Theoretical bases of kinematics of viscous fluids - three main equations. Up to date knowledge of pressure system flow and open channels in steady and unsteady regime.
