This module provides an introduction to the theory of incompressible fluid dynamics, which describes the motion of liquids and gases at speeds small compared to the sound speed. Special attention is paid to a precise foundation of the various conservation laws that govern fluid dynamics, as this provides a convenient framework in which to study specific examples as well as extensions of the basic theory.
Pre-requisite(s): Before taking this module you must pass MT2506 and pass MT3504
