    • This course, Introduction to Marine Hydrodynamics, will introduce essential concepts, methods, equations and theorems related to understanding fluid static and dynamic performances. At first it will explain abstract concepts of continuum medium, compressibility, fluid viscosity, Newton's frictional law and the corresponding Newtonian fluids. Then fluid statics will be introduced, where Archimedes theorem will be derived and explained. Then kinematics of fluid, extending to Eulerian and Lagrangian descriptions of motion of fluid fields, concepts of streamlines, path lines, stream tubes, steady and unsteady flows, 1- and 2- and 3-dimensional flows, material (substantial) derivatives, equation of continuity, stream function and velocity potential, is taught. Also Helmholtz decomposition of flow field will be explained. Then fluid dynamics, covering Euler's equation, Bernoulli's equation and momentum equation, is discussed. Then a concept of vorticity and its related concepts of vorticity
