Courses

Fluids mechanics (For GC)

This course is an introduction to fluid mechanics. Physical properties of fluids and the conservation principles (mass and momentum) are presented. The second part of the course is devoted to applications to open-channel hydraulics and pipeline flows.

Flood and dam break waves

The course provides computational methods for unsteady flow problems such as floods, waves, and dam failures. The emphasis is on the physical understanding of the phenomena, the governing equations (Saint-Venant equations) and aspects related to engineering practice.
