Can anyone please tell me the topics I need to study from Fluid Mechanics, specially fluid dynamics to understand Heat Transfer in a better way?

  • $\begingroup$ honestly , its not very specific , our course has just begun and I came to know that mainly in convection concepts of fluid flow would be required so I just wanted to revise a few topics on fluid flow. $\endgroup$ Sep 18 '21 at 14:13

    $\begingroup$ Your university should list the course prerequisites. Personally I'd bone up on partial differential equations. $\endgroup$

Fluid mechanics is mostly used in handling convection problem, whether it is forced convection or natural convection. Additionally, on those two problems the concept that is used is mostly dimensionless number (like Re, Gr, Pr, etc.) and that's it, and also boundary layer concept. If there is one concept that you should try to understand, I think try to learn what those dimensionless number tell you about how the fluid behave.
