This course will provide the student with a basic understanding of fluid properties, fluid statics and dynamics, and fluid flow. The flow of incompressible fluids in pressure systems constitutes the major portion of this course.
Pre-Requisites:
None
Intended Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this course students will be able to:
1. understand the basic concepts of fluid mechanics.
2. understand the mathematical description of fluid flow.
3. understand the conservation principles governing fluidflows.
4. be able to solve inviscid flow problems using streamfunctions and velocity potentials.
5. be able to compute forces on bodies in fluid flows.
6. be able to solve (analytical and numerical) viscous flow problems.
