Im currently taking a course in Introductory Fluid Mechanics, and as part of this course I have to do a research project. Problem is, I have no idea what topic to research.
The instructor said we can do original work, or, we can find a paper that we think is interesting, read and understand that paper fully, and do a presentation about it. I'm leaning more towards original work (seems more beneficial to me), but like I said, I don't know what to look for.
If you could give me some interesting topics/problems that are accessible to a FOURTH YEAR UNDERGRADUATE student in Mathematics, I would greatly appreciate it. My programming knowledge is limited but I do know a bit of stuff, so CFD is not completely ruled out as long as the computing work is not too advanced.
This project is worth 10% of my final grade, so it does not need to be something that is a massive undertaking. I have to give a 15 minute presentation on it, to give you some guidelines of what is expected by the instructor as far as the depth of the project goes.
Thanks in advance.
