Fluid mechanics often seem like pure magic. Things just happen to float or rise and sink in the air as if some invisible puppeteer is pulling his strings. But don’t let him fool you! He probably just mastered all the mysteries of fluid mechanics!
So, if you ever wondered how these big metal birds are flying, how gigantic water turbines are generating vast amounts of electricity to power your little smartphones or why racing cars are shaped that funny (believe it or not: Bernie Ecclestone’s weird fetishes only play a minor role in this one): Come to Vienna! We will reveal all our dark and secret knowledge to you, but only if you prove yourself capable of all the life-changing revelations that will come along!
Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, with the most aggressive language in the world! 😉 Let’s explore imperial buildings, awesome countryside, Vienna’s nightlife and dance some Waltz! And what about some Schnitzel and Sachertorte? Don’t miss out!
You will discover and understand the fundamental laws and motions in fluid mechanics. You will gain knowledge about the partially strange behavior of fluids. And you will learn what and how the invisible forces on objects derive from the motion of flows, where these forces come from and how to determine them.
Topics and content of the event:
Physical Fluid Mechanics: Course topics will be presented from a physically intuitive viewpoint and elucidate visual lab experiments with derivation of simple mathematical models. Course topics will range from fundamentals physical properties to daily life, environmental and industrial applications.
