Experimental Methods In Fluid Mechanics

This module teaches students various techniques and skills in carrying out fluid mechanics experiment. Major topics are: Similitudes and modeling; Wind tunnel design; Mean and fluctuating velocity measurement; Mean and fluctuating pressure measurement; Shear stress measurements; Wind tunnel blockage correction; End plate configurations; Flow visualisation; Signal analysis: data acquisition, probability theory, correlation studies, spectral analysis. This module is targeted at students who are working on a final year project which involves conducting fluid mechanics experiments and those who have interest in experimental fluid mechanics.
