Educational Material Types
  • Notes
  • Slide presentations
Use of Information and Communication Technologies
Use of ICT
  • Use of ICT in Course Teaching
  • Use of ICT in Laboratory Teaching
  • Use of ICT in Communication with Students
Basic training on the use of CFD code (ANSYS). Multi-media (Powerpoint) are used for the lectures and to present their work. “Blackboard”, a course management system, is used for posting announcements, giving instructions and delivering lecture notes.
Course Organization
Laboratory Work
Written assigments
Student Assessment
The students (in 2-memper groups) are assigned a project on multiphase flow. They present the results orally (in class) and they are graded by their fellow students (50%). They also submitt a written report which is graded by the instractor (50%)
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Multiple Choice Questions (Formative)
  • Written Exam with Short Answer Questions (Formative)
  • Written Assignment (Summative)
  • Written Exam with Problem Solving (Formative)
  • Labortatory Assignment (Formative, Summative)
