Course contents:

• Introduction, goals and objectives of this course; • Physical properties of fluids; • Fluid Statics; • Fluid kinematics; • Ideal fluid dynamics; • Principle of linear momentum and of angular momentum; • Real fluid dynamics; • Basics of turbulent flows; • Pipe flows without pressure losses; • Pipe flows with pressure losses; • Mass and heat transfer in fluids; • Characteristic numbers used in fluid dynamics for analyzing fluid-dynamic processes • Fluid-dynamic models used for describing environmental pollution phenomena • Conclusions related to relevance of fluid mechanics for environmental engineering

Teaching methods:

Giving lectures, presenting real case studies, explaining industrial processes based on fluids, conversation, exemplification, applying hands-on methods.

Learning outcomes:

 usage of basic fluid mechanics notions in solving environmental pollution problems;  gaining basic notions for further analyzing and assessing environmental pollution and protection field;  good expertise retrieval and systematic knowledge on the basis of deeper insights within the study of environmental pollution and protection subjects  basic notions for approaching environmentally friendly technologies (with small environmental impact)

Learning outcomes verification and assessment criteria:

Oral examination – 50%; continuous assessment by preparing reports and delivering results of practical work in the laboratory – 25%; implication in solving problems during seminars – 25 %
