The course is designed to enable students acquire basic conversational/speaking and writing skills in French language. Attention will be focused on the basic grammatical structural and relevant items of vocabulary (lexical items) of the language. The course will be essentially oral but there will also be reading, comprehension and practical exercises in class.

The study of fluid dynamics is complicated by the introduction of viscosity-dependent shear forces/stresses that were absent in the preceding treatment of stationary fluids. In the majority of flow cases analysis relies upon a body of empirical work, supported by the concepts of dimensional analysis and similarity. In this aspect of the course, we will establish the analytical techniques that will later be combined with the empirical representation of frictional forces to allow the study of real fluid behavior. To effectively deal with fluid dynamics, it is first necessary to identify flow categories, defined in predominantly mathematical terms that will allow the appropriate analysis to be undertaken by identifying suitable and acceptable simplifications. This aspect will also address the development of series of mathematically expressed principles that will allow the variations in flow parameters as result of the motion of the fluid to be predicted. Examples of such mathematically expressed principles are as follows: principles of continuity, energy and momentum. Steady flow energy equation (SFEE) will also be derived in this aspect and later be utilized to describe the behavior of real fluids.
