Experimental Fluid Mechanics

Summer School of Mechanical Engineering, 5 ECTS

Institution University of Southern Denmark (SDU)
Campus Odense
Duration 2 weeks
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 1160 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 570 EUR
Only on campus*:   the course will only be offered if physical presence on campus is possible; otherwise it will be cancelled.

This course introduces methods and techniques for measurement and data analysis in experimental fluid mechanics, Students will learn to conduct aerodynamics performance test of airfoil in both wind tunnel and water tunnel. The obtained knowledge will be applied in a design process for aerodynamic devices for wind turbine blades. Performance test for add-ons (e.g. vortex generators) to change the flow separation on the blades will be examined. The potential increase in efficiency will be evaluated with reference to a clean airfoil.

Ability to analyze collected data from an experiment. Ability to design an experiment in fluid mechanics. Document the result from laboratory experiments in a report. Planning and conducting experiments in fluid mechanics.

Mandatory prerequisites: You must have completed two years of engineering studies. Furthermore, knowledge of basic fluid mechanics is required.

Admission/Tuition: NOTE: Exchange students from a partner university pay no tuition. Guest students pay tuition fees. Please read more:
