1 – Overall aims of course
This course aims to acquire the student learn ideal flow characteristics, equations of motion
and types of flow, flow function definition, flow around floating bodies, simpler and complex
types of ideal flow, pressure distribution on geometrical bodies, viscous flow and equations,
theoretical investigation of hydrodynamic airfoils and calculation of lift and drag forces, and
theory of surface waves.

2 – Intended learning outcomes of course (ILOs)

a- Knowledge and understanding:
The course enables the students to:

a1- define the ideal flow characteristics and derive the equation of flow motion.
a2- use the simple and complex types of ideal flow to calculate flow around bodies.
a3- estimate the pressure distribution around bodies from the principal and NASA sections.
a4- calculate the boundary layer characteristics for bodies.

b- Intellectual skills
The student will able to:

b1- establish the different type of flow by superposition method.

b2- estimate the boundary layer characteristics.
b3- calculate lift and drag of airfoil and wave characteristics.

c- Professional and practical skills

The course enable the students to:
c1- estimate velocity and pressure about floating bodies using the computer.
c2- estimate lift and drag for NASA airfoil sections.
c3- estimate drag force for flat plate by using boundary theory, applicable to ship.

d- General and transferable skills

At the end of this course the student will be ready to:
d1- define the characteristics of ideal flow, viscous flow, airfoil theory and waves.
d2- apply the gained knowledge to determine the hydrodynamic characteristic of floating
bodies and estimate the lift and drag force for airfoil section.
d3- calculate the pressure distribution using the NASA airfoil sections.
