Introduction to turbomachinery

The student obtains an insight to thermal and hydraulic turbomachinery and the different engine types in the field and learns basic rules for the design and analyses.

Aeroelasticity and fluid-structure interaction

Static and dynamic response of coupled fluid-structure systems as a result of extraneously-induced excitation, motion-induced excitation, and fluid-instability-induced excitation.

Cavitation and interface phenomena

Introduction, basic concepts; cavitation bubble collapse; dynamique des cavits; cavitation in vorticalstructures; industrial applications.
