Information regarding the general organization of the "Fluid Mechanics" exam:

The first part of the exam starts at 8:15 and lasts until 10:00. The second part starts at 10:15 and lasts until 12:00. Each part consists of two examples and provides a maximum of 20 points per part. The overall points will be added and result in the final mark. For the further processing concept paper will be provided. Only writing utensils and a calculator approbated by the ÖH are allowed on the examination site.

The exact examination site will be announced via the seating plan at afternoon. The plan can be accessed on the institute homepage, section "student corner" via the menu option NEWS.

Preparation for observed exams:

We recommend getting in touch with Assoz.Prof.Dr. Gamsjäger about the observed exam. He will provide assistance in this matter.
