Fluid Mechanics

Fluid mechanics is a branch of continuous mechanics, in which the kinematics and mechanical behavior of materials are modeled as a continuous mass rather than as discrete particles. It is the study of fluids at rest as well as fluids at motion. In our department, several core courses (e.g., fluid mechanics, marine hydrodynamics, etc.) as well as optional courses like hydro-elasticity, sea waves and spectral analysis, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) are offered at the undergraduate level. Hence, the curriculum is designed to provide graduates with a firm foundation in the analytical, computational, and experimental essentials of fluid mechanics. Also, to prepare graduates to conduct higher research in this field. Research activity in this field focuses on fluid-structure interaction i.e., motion of deformable bodies through liquids, theoretical fluid dynamics, non-linear wave mechanics, ship waves, etc.
