MECH 5000 [0.5 credit] (MCG 5300) Fundamentals of Fluid Dynamics

Differential equations of motion. Viscous and inviscid regions. Potential flow: superposition; thin airfoils; finite wings; compressibility corrections. Viscous flow: thin shear layer approximation; laminar layers; transition; turbulence modeling. Convective heat transfer: free versus forced convection; energy and energy integral equations; turbulent diffusion.
Also offered at the undergraduate level, with different requirements, as AERO 4302, for which additional credit is precluded.

MECH 5300 [0.5 credit] (MCG 5330) Engineering Acoustics

Review of acoustic waves in compressible fluids; acoustic pressure, intensity and impedance; physical interpretation and measurement; transmission through media; layers, in-homogeneous media, solids; acoustic systems; rooms, ducts, resonators, mufflers, properties of transducers; microphones, loudspeakers, computational acoustics.
