Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to mathematically describe fluid mechanics. They will be familiar with the typical numerical implementation on both the theoretical and practical level. The students will be familiar with the handling and phenomena of higher fluid mechanics such as turbulence modelling, multiphase flow, heat transport mechanisms.
