SIO 214a  Introduction to Fluid Mechanics - 2007   Rough Notes

Please read lecture 8 (Unsteady viscous flows in the rough notes)
The movie is best seen after lecture 9, which I hope we can do on Friday, you can find it at: http://web.mit.edu/fluids/www/Shapiro/ncfmf.html

Final Review

Resources:

Late homework is not accepted (my eye!)
Mid-term will take place in class, on Oct 26th and on the last day.
Final will be as scheduled, 11 Dec.
Main Text (different from last year): Kundu and Cohen, Fluid Mechanics, 3rd ed. Elsevier
Copies of the text, and a large collection of supplementary reading is on the reserve shelf for this class in the SIO library.
Alternate very good texts are:
Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics (Munson, Young and Okiishi) (beginner level)
Fluid Flow (Sabersky, Acosta, etc...)
There are a very instructive series of movies at:
