Thi
s course introduces the student to basic concepts of fluid mechanics and hydraulics.
Starting with fluid properties and fluid statics,

the student would understand how these
concepts are used for the calculation of hydrostatic forces and the stability of
floating
bodies. The student

is introduced to the concepts of fluid flow, ideal and real fluids and
their limitations, laminar and turbulent flows, the concept of the boundary layer and flow
resistance, the concept of flow separation and the wake, frictio
nal and form drag

and lift
on immersed bodies. Dimensional analysis and the concept of similitude will help
reinforce the fundamental considerations essential for experiments with fluid
phenomena. By the end of the course, the student should understand th
e concepts of
conservation of mass, momentum and energy and how these can be applied to flow
measuring devices, to the estimation of frictional losses for flows in pipelines, to pumping
systems and other engineering applications.

Brief Description


This is an introductory module in slope stability and earth retaining structures. The topics
covered include slopes and embankments, earth pressure and retai
ning structures, and
