Below are some details about few courses I teach within both the Supaero engineer and MSc Graduate Programs. Apart from these courses, I also give lectures in the following courses :

  • Approches alternatives en mécaniques des fluides, Supaero 1st year
  • Pratique expérimentale, Supaero 1st year
  • Mécanique et thermodynamique des fluides, Supaero 2nd year
  • Experimental Approach in Fluid Mechanics, MAE 2nd semester
  • Physics and Modelling of Turbulence, MAE 3rd semester

 Fluid Mechanics and thermodynamics - 1st year

This course is aimed to give the essential notions on thermodynamics applied at the engineer level, to present the physics of the models driving the fluid dynamics and to introduce main elements on propulsion. In this course, I teach the first part related to the elements for the description of fluid matter and its dynamics, the transition from a description at the microscopic level to the macroscopic one (continuous medium hypothesis, local thermodynamic equilibrium assumption, kinetic theory of gas, perfect gas model), the fluid kinematics (strain, rotation, shear, streamline, trajectory and emission line), the first and second principles of thermodynamics.

 Physics of heat transfers - 2nd year

This course is aimed at giving the major notions related to the physics of heat transfers. Nicolas Gourdain starts with conduction (heat fluxes, Fourier’s law, thermal conductivity, steady and unsteady heat equation) ; I keep on with convection (heat transport equation for fluids and its application to teh different regimes of the thermal boundary layer) ; and Sébastien Massenot ends with radiative heat transfers (energetic properties of radiation, black body and Planck’s law, emissivity of grey bodies, radiative transfers between Lambertian surfaces, shape factors).

 Turbulence and numerical simulation- 3rd year

Within this course of the Fluid Dynamics major where Laurent Joly and Julien Bodart deal with the modelling of free and near-wall turbulence (RANS and LES), I give a series of introduction lectures to the physics of turbulence. It starts with fundamental notions and the statistical treatment of turbulence before presenting the two-point correlation theory and the spectral approach which enables the derivation of Kolmogorov spectrum. I keep on with the specificities of near-wall turbulence (mean velocity profile and Reynolds stress dynamics). Moodle link to this course
