Course Objective This is an introductory study of fluid mechanics for engineering majors. The conservation principles, which form the basis of the study of fluid mechanics, will be introduced and used to develop methods of analysis for relatively simple flow systems.
Course Content Definition and properties of the fluid, the fluid behavior of the static state, the pressure and the measurement of the implementation of the basic conservation laws of the movement of the fluid, flow types and Reynolds Number, the law of conservation of mass, momentum and energy equations of mechanical, dimensional analysis and modeling, fluid flow in pipes, pump selection, flow speed, flow and pressure measurement.
