This course covers the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, including fluid statics and dynamics, equations of motion, dimensional analysis, boundary layer theory, flow in pipes, turbulence, fluid machinery, potential flow, CFD and aerodynamics. Laboratory work to illustrate the concepts learned in this course. Experiments include fluid statics, forces on a submerged surface, center of pressure, manometers, surface tension, flow visualization, Bernoulli’s equation, control volume analysis, viscous flow in pipes, flow over bodies, turbomachinery, and thermodynamic cycles.
