Learning and Teaching Methods
In group tutorials the problem-solving competences of the students will be enhanced by solving additional exercises. In particular, the ability to apply solution strategies to similar problem descriptions are promoted.
Description of exams and course work
In a short question part the students should answer knowledge- and comprehension question in short phrases and proof, that they master the basics and contexts of inviscid and simple viscous flows.
In a calculation part should be proofed, that the students are able to recognize in a limited time and with limited tools the problems of fluid mechanics and find ways to their correct solution. There the students should demonstrate that they can quantitatively describe and analyse inviscid and simple viscous flows (incompressible and compressible).
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
