CE 397 – Experimental Methods in Fluid Dynamics

Graduate level course introducing methods and techniques of experimental data collection and analysis for environmentally-motivated turbulent flows. The course will be laboratory and programming intensive, with students exploring acoustic techniques, optical techniques (particle image velocimetry, laser induced fluorescence, among others), and more.  3-4 labs across the entire semester, no weekly lab.  Note: some laboratory experiments will be held at the J.J. Pickle Research Campus.

CE 319F – Elementary Mechanics of Fluids

Undergraduate course in fluid properties, hydrostatics, elements of fluid dynamics, energy and momentum, boundary layers, similitude, pipe flow, metering instruments, drag forces. Three lecture hours and two laboratory hours a week for one semester.
