Mechanics is the physical science that deals with the effects of forces on objects. Mechanics can be divided into three main branches: rigid-body mechanics, deformable-body mechanics, and fluid mechanics. This course is an introductory level course on fluid mechanics.

None

Upon succesful completion of this course, a student will be able to

1. Recognize physical properties of fluids and use them in basic fluid mechanics problems, convert units, examine dimensional homogeneity in expressions

2. Analyze fluid static problems and examine pressure measurement setups

3. Recognize difference of dynamic and total pressures, apply Bernoulli’s equation to fluid mechanics problems without energy loss

4. Examine velocity and acceleration fields, formulate pathlines, streamlines and streaklines, express Eulerian and Lagrangian flow descriptions

5. Illustrate control volume analysis and analyze fluid mechanics problems that require the use of conservation of mass, momentum and energy principles

6. Interpret fluid element kinematics, employ vector calculus in the derivation of basic conservation equations, recognize the physical interpretations of mathematical terms in complex equations

7. Perform dimensional analysis, recognize common dimensionless groups, apply Buckingham Pi theorem to model studies
