The Math Section of ITD conducted the 8 th staff development workshop for the academic year 2018-2019 on 13th March 2019. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Naheed on the topic “Some basic problems: Flow between two parallel plates with and without porous medium”. The topic was chosen from FLUID MECHANICS. He discussed the fluid flow between two parallel plates along with some fundamental definitions. Using governing equations (Navier Stokes equations (Equation of Momentum) and Continuity equation) formulated first, physical model of the problem and later Mathematical Model and conclusions are drawn graphically. Later, some problems were discussed with the same governing equations by adding a porous term and conclusions are drawn graphically. In the above two types of problems, analytical methods are applied to obtain expressions for velocity, shear stress and average velocity of the fluid. The workshop was very informative and gave a brief idea about the topic under discussion. Math staff attended the workshop. The venue of the workshop was A121. The workshop was conducted under the guidance of Dr. Khalifa Al Shaqsi HoS math section, coordinated by staff development coordinator Ms. Manitha Rijo.
