|Fluid dynamics and heat transfer|
random old notes
At Olin College I often teach our course, Transport Phenomena, which provides and introduction to fluid dynamics and heat transfer.
Over the years I have developed my own set of notes and lectures for this course.
The book which is linked below is the required text for the students.
I aim to continually update and improve upon these materials every time I teach the course.
The level for the course is aimed at third year engineering undergraduates and assumes that the student is familiar with vector calculus.
In 2018 I did a fairly significant edit from the previous versions. In addition to these numerous changes, I also created a shorter "Fluids Only" version. The Fluid Dynamics and Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer books are largely the same, only the fluids only version is shorter and a little more focused.
Please contact me if you have any comments or suggestions on these materials. I hope you find something in here intereting or useful.
