4 Course
Objectives:
1.
To
describe the basic fundamental principles of fluid mechanics
such as continuum
concept, viscosity, pressure, hydrostatic force, mass conservation principle,
momentum conservation principle energy conservation, fluid frictions and boundary
layer.
2.
To apply the basic principle to
derive equations
that governs behavio
ur of flowing
fluid and simplifications of the equations such as Euler equation and Bernoulli
equation.
3.
To apply the governing equation in
solving practical engineering problems
.
5 Course Outcomes (CO):
At the end of the course, students are expected to obtain the course outcomes (CO), as
given in Appendix A, which shows the relationship between the CO and the Program
Outcome (PO).
Details of the PO is given in Appendix B.
