095962 - FLUIDS LABS
Course 095961 - FLUID LABS  (5 CFU) is part of the integrated course 095962- FLUIDS LABS (10 CFU). Content of this sheet also refers to the course 096299 - FLUID LABS  (5 CFU), offered as unified course with this one.
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 compound of two integrated sections of 5+5 CFU (theory + labs) which are based on theoretical, numerical and experimental analysis of a variety of prototipal flow fields. In this part of the course Fluids Lab 2, will be considered the following Reference Cases (RC):
RC3 - cylinder in a turbulent channel
RC5 - fluid-structure interactions
The specific theoretical background for the analysis is offered through the unit 9:
U9 – fluid-structure interaction
In the Experimental Laboratories (RC5) 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 (RC3) numerical simulation (CFD) of a benchmark configuration is performed and post-processed. Elements of numerical methods are briefly provided.
Applications in complex cases
If possible, There will also be seminars on complex cases, numerical and / or experimental. We will consider the analysis of processes and their modeling. Possible topics: Multi-phase flows / Wave energy / Control Valves
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
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
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.
3. Individual oral exam - additional assignments
Additional optional assigments are proposed for the different reference flow fields. If developed by the students, results are discussed during the individual oral exam.
Final mark results from the sum of the single parts.
