Course description
In this course, students in small group will learn technical writing methods and oral presentation skills in the context of a real engineering problem under the supervisor. This course also enhances the development of essential skills for oral and written communications and teamwork.
Purpose of class
To develop the ability of technical writing methods, oral presentation skills and teamwork.
Goals and objectives
  1. Students will be able to consider research results on the theme and make a presentation about them theoretically.
  2. Students will be able to investigate information about the theme actively and improve your own skills.
  3. Students will be able to collect information and/or reference from various databases and use them effectively.
  4. Students will be able to complete the project according to schedule.
  5. Students will be able to select relevant methods to solve engineering problems and carry out them.

Theme:
Fundamentals of Turbulent Flow

Overview:
In contrast to laminar fluid flows treated in theories of fluid mechanics, almost all of real fluid flows are turbulent. Thus, fudamental knowledge of turbulence is required in order to use turbulent flows in engineering applications. In the present course, the students learn basic theories and applications of turbulence based on an introductory textbook. The students are expected to participate actively in the classes through discussions and presentations. The learning process is based on the consideration of solution to certain problems in turbulent flows. The students will learn the solving processes by making presentations, developing discussions and submitting reports.

Schedule:
1. Introduction - deterministic aspect of turbulent flows
2. Basic equations - conservation laws and Boussinesq approximation
3. Instability and transision to turbulence - instability theory
4. Features of turbulent flows and analysis of turbulence
5. Statistical treatment of turbulence - Reynolds decomposition
6. Wall turbulence - turbulent flows near solid boundaries
7. Free turbulence - turbulent flows without solid boundaries
8. Turbulent kinetic energy - transport equations
9. Redistribution of turbulent energy
10. Vortex and vorticity equations
11. Turbulence model
12. Correlation and Taylor hypothesis
13. Energy spectrum
14. Turbulent diffusion

Textbook:
"Turbulence", F.T.M. Nieuwstadt, B.J. Boersma, J. Westerweel, Springer, (2016) and some others

Preparation:
Review previous courses including Hydrodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer Engineering
preparation and report on subjects given in the seminar meeting. 1250minutes

Evaluation method and criteria
Your final grade will be calculated according to the following process:
- Defining the problem: 20 points
- Devising strategies: 30 points
- Solving the problem: 20 points
- Communication: 10 points
