Aims

Students gain knowledge of theory of hydrodynamic phenomenons modelling including possible reduction of similitude scale. Overview of application of modern measuring techniques including contactless methods (laser, ultrasonic) for identification of flow structure. The measuring technology will be introduced to students in laboartory.
