Environmental Fluid Mechanics 1:
Mass Transfer and Diffusion


Students studying under the new curriculum can choose one of three exam possibilities:

  1. Take the 120 min written exam im Fach "Umweltfluidmechanik Grundlagen" im Schwerpunkt "Umweltfluidmechanik".  Exam dates will be posted here after they are set.
  2. Organize an oral or written exam together with other courses as an "Ergänzungsfachprüfung".  Exam dates and format must be scheduled with the respective professors.
  3. Take a 30 min oral exam over just this course as a Zusatzfach.  The exam date must be scheduled with Dr.-Ing. Tobias Bleninger or with Prof. G.H. Jirka Ph.D.

Written exams from previous years

To help students prepare for the exam, problems with solutions from previous years are available for download.  Please note that these problems were given under the old curriculum (for the Gruppenprüfung Wasserbau).  Written exams in the new curriculum may have different content.
