322.047 Applied Fluid Mechanics Laboratory
This course is in all assigned curricula part of the STEOP.
This course is in at least 1 assigned curriculum part of the STEOP.

2019S, LU, 2.0h, 2.5EC, to be held in blocked form

Properties

  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 2.5
  • Type: LU Laboratory Exercise

Aim of course

Introduction to various important fluid flow processes and important measurement methods in fluid mechanics. Students independently develop technological solutions for practice-relevant flow problems utilizing experimental techniques.

The lecture is part of the Applied Fluid Mechanics Module consisting of an in interlinked lecture (VO), a CFD project (PR) and a laboratory exercise (LU).

Subject of course

Application of experimental methods for typical applied problems.

The laboratory exercise is organized in units of 4 hours each on the following topics:

  • Measurement of Fluid Properties (viscosimetry)
  • Elements of Measurement Techniques (classical optical measurement methods, free convection; shallow water channel)
  • One Directional Flow Phenomena (diffusion and fingering in a Hele-Shaw cell)
  • Elements of Fluid Flow Instabilities (Particle Image Velocimetry or Laser Doppler Anemometry, Taylor-Couette experiment)
  • Elements of Aerodynamics (icing of a wing profile in the subsonic wind tunnel (hot wire anemometry, 6-component force balance)

Examination modalities

At the beginning of each exercise unit the knowledge of the respective documents (lecture notes) is checked.

Protocols are written, which are to be handed in at the end of the exercise unit, but at the latest by the next exercise unit.

The marks are based on the knowledge of the lab contents, on active participation, cooperation and on the submitted reports.

The laboratory of the Institute of Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer is located at Arsenal, Franz-Grill-Straße 9, Object 214.
