### Spring 2019-2022: Multiphase Flow (ME 125AS/225AS)

Multiphase systems encompass a large number of situations: particles in a fluid, water drops in a spray, air bubbles in water, biological fluids, etc. As a result, modeling multiphase flows is important to understand industrial processes (construction materials, oil and gas industry), environmental situations (rain, dispersion of contaminants) and biological systems (blood flow, micro-organisms in porous media). This course is an introduction to multiphase flows and to the methods used to describe their dynamics. This course covers: (1) the dynamics of particles dispersed in fluid, (2) the mechanics of granular materials and (3) the formation of liquid drops and sprays. Recent research topics in this area will be presented.

### Winter 2020-2024: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics II (Undergraduate, ME 152B)

The overall course objective is to familiarize students with fluid mechanics concepts. For each area of fluid mechanics, the objectives are to learn concepts and physical principles and to develop the ability to solve and analyze problems. The course covers dimensional analysis and similitude, incompressible viscous flow, turbomachinery, boundary-layer theory, and introductory considerations for one-dimensional compressible flow.

### Fall 2019-2021: Hydrodynamic Instability and Turbulence (ME 225F)

Spring 2024: Hydrodynamic Instability and Turbulence (ME 125F/225F)

Hydrodynamic instabilities and turbulent flows are ubiquitous in fluid mechanics, from natural phenomena to industrial and technological applications. The goal of the course is to provide an introduction to the transition to unstable and turbulent flows. We will discuss some classical hydrodynamic instabilities and the analytical tools available to predict their existence and the patterns generated. The second part of the class will focus on turbulence and the methods of statistical analysis available to provide a thoughtful description of such flows. Classical features of turbulent flows will be covered: free turbulent flows, flow near a solid wall, homogeneous turbulence, etc.
