095962 - FLUIDS LABS
Course 095962 is an integrated course compound of two modules, each of them accounting for 5 CFU: 095960 FLUID LABS  as joint course with 096298 - FLUID LABS  (5 CFU), and 095961 FLUID LABS  as joint course with 096299 - FLUID LABS  (5 CFU).
The course aims at training master students in the analysis of fluid dynamic processes from different perspectives. Students learn to handle a variety of techniques in order to capture and model the complexity of full scale fluid dynamics phenomena: theoretical approaches, numerical modelling, experimental laboratory. Students are asked to combine information with different nature (theoretical vs. heuristic), origin (numerical/theoretical vs. experimental) and granularity (continuous vs. sparse) with the aim of understanding the physics of fluid.

The whole Fluids Labs course is based on theoretical, numerical and experimental analysis of a variety of prototipal flow fields, in the following indicated as Reference Cases (RC) namely:
RC1 - laminar channel flow
RC2 - turbulent channel flow
RC3 - cylinder in a turbulent channel
RC4 - pipe flow
RC5 - fluid-structure interactions
The theoretical background for the analysis is offered through 9 units:
U1 – kinematics
U2 – fluid properties: reaction of a fluid to stress
In the Experimental Laboratories the fluid dynamic processes are analyzed on the basis of demonstrations and laboratory measurements and / or experimental data provided to the students. Quantities measured or provided (with nods to the techniques of measurement used) are: velocity/ pressure/forces/ displacements. Type of processes:
Fluid-Structure Interactions, bluff bodies (cylinder, sphere) immersed in a steady flow, fixed or oscillating bodies
Interaction fluid / wall (velocity profiles on flat walls smooth and rough)
In the Numerical Laboratories numerical simulation (CFD) of benchmark configurations are performed and post-processed. Elements of numerical methods are briefly provided.
Fundamentals of continuum mechanics. Fundamentals of statistics. Fundamentals of numerical analysis.
Modalità di valutazione
1. Oral group presentation of work project of the experimental laboratory (max 10 points)
The presentation of the work projects aims at verifying students' ability in the explanation and discussion of their work. Organization of the presentation and the capacity of explaining the concepts, within the available time, are important for the evaluation, together with the capacity of answering questions on the project.
2. Individual oral exam (max 16 points)
Oral discussion is based on a number of assigments developed during the course, aimed at quantitatively and qualitatively analysing the reference flow fields. Students demonstrate knowledge of the theoretical contents, competence on fluid mechanics processes as well as critical reasoning skills by discussing the proposed phenomena.
