Objectives of studying the discipline

The aim of the course is to study the most complicated sections of hydromechanics and gas dynamics, construct new models of fluid and gas motion, study the interaction of liquid and gaseous media with elastic bodies, and develop new analytical and numerical methods for solving problems.

 As a result of the study the master student should be able to:

–       to choose a model and to implement the initial-boundary problems of hydroaeromechanics;

–       to carry out a mathematical solution of the problems of fluid mechanics and gas;

–       to improve models of hydroaeromechanics and aeroelasticity;

–        develop analytical, approximate and numerical methods for the problems of fluid and gas mechanics;

–       apply the basic methods of mathematical and numerical modeling to solve theoretical and applied problems in the field of hydro- and aeroelasticity.
