Learning outcomes

The aim to introduce basics of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics to students. Special emphasis is placed on the theoretical aspects including derivation of basic relation between particular quantities. In addition, students will gain advanced knowledge related to fluid flow, and introduction to aerodynamics.
The graduate will get knowledge of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics with an emphasis on the theoretical basis. Students will be capable to discuss and to derive the basic relationships and equations. In addition, students will have an overview of fluid flow and fundamentals of aerodynamics.
