Learning Objectives

The objectives of the course are:

1. Give the basic elements of continuum mechanics and fluid dynamics (II module).

2. Understanding the mechanics of continuous physical phenomena and fluid dynamics.

3. Understanding of the different solution methods: why it has been proposed a solution method? What are some alternative methods? Understanding how the analytical solutions obtained are related to the physics of the problem.

4. It will be privileged the understanding of the physical part,the methods and the analytical resolution.

Course Structure

Lectures and exercises done by students at home and in class.


Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be
necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in
line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.
