2019S, VO, 2.0h, 2.0EC


  • Semester hours: 2.0
  • Credits: 2.0
  • Type: VO Lecture

Aim of course

The students are guided through scientific and technological methods for the development of practice-relevant solutions in the field of applied fluid mechanics.

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

Flow measurement technology, application of practical flow simulation software, experimental, numerical and theoretical treatment of typical applied problems from modeling to problem solving.

The lecture contains:

  • Elements of Measurement Techniques
  • One Directional Flow Phenomena
  • Heat & Fluid Flow Applications
  • Elements of Fluid Flow Instabilities
  • Elements of Aerodynamics

To supplement the lecture, excursions to facilities of applied fluid mechanics are offered (for example Vienna Climatic Wind Tunnel, Austrian Institute of Technology, Technical Museum Vienna, shipyard of Austrian Airlines).
