COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Basic principles of fluid mechanics. Hydrostatic forces, kinematics of fluid motion, integral a
nd differential
representation of conservation of mass, momentum and energy, Bernoulli’s equation, dimensional analysis,
viscous flow, frictional losses, pipeline network analysis and design.

COURSE PREREQUISITES
:

ME 251, MATH 463, ME258

OUTCOMES
:
This

course will present and demonstrate to the students the following
:

A mathematical and physical understanding of the concepts of stress and strain rate in fluids.

The concepts of conservation of mass, momentum equations, and conservation of energy in both
integral and
differential formulations.

An introduction to the analysis of ideal and viscous flows and their application in solving practical fluid problems.
energy loss and the flow rates associated with different flow networks.

Evaluate a given fluid f
low problem and determine the proper use of dimensional analysis leading to an appropriate
design of experiments.

Introduction to various Fluid machines such as pumps and turbines.

REQUIRED TEXTBOOKS:

Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics
, 5th edition, by Muns

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Shall

be completed as per assigned schedule given in class.

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:

Shall

be completed using the engineering method for problem solving an
d solution presentation according to
schedule given in class.

EXAMINATIONS:

Shall

be taken as assigned in class. Since exam problems will reflect homework assignments, appropriate use
of the engineering method for problem solving and solution prese
ntation is expected.

Laboratory

In the laboratory, students will learn about measurement methods in fluid mechanics, and investigate concepts
discussed in the lectures.

SPECIAL NEEDS:

If you need course adaptations or accommodations because of a disabil
ity, you must file appropriate
documentation with Dr. George Tenney in the Office of Special Services. If you have emergency medical information that
needs to be shared with the instructor, or require special arrangements in case the building must be evac
inform the instructor.

ATTENDANCE:

Students are expected to attend all scheduled classes and lab sessions. Should an absence be necessary in a
required class, the student will be held responsible for all material or announcements presented
in that class,
whether or not the material is included in notes or other printed material.
