Course outline
This course is prepared to gain high knowledge
about Fluid
Mechanics
(
FM
)
discipline
.
Reservoir
analysis
is
the main concern of the course. The course combines
theoretical foundations with practical applications. We will begin with a general
overview in each topic and then go into more detail on several concepts.
Fluid
mechanics deals with the flow
of fluids
. I
ts study is important to physicists,
whose
main
interest is
in understanding
ph
e
nomena. The study or fluid mechanics is just as
important to engineers, whose main interest is in the ap
plications
of fluid
mechanics t
o
solve industrial problems.
Course objectives
Generic Objective of the Course:
Fluid mechanics deals with the study of all ﬂuids under static and dynamic situations.
The ﬂuid mechanics study involve many ﬁelds that have no clear boundaries
between them. Researchers distinguish betwe
en orderly ﬂow and chaotic ﬂow as the
laminar ﬂow and the turbulent ﬂow

Preparation for class
The structure of this course makes your individual study and preparation outside
the class extremely important. The lecture material will focus on the
major points
introduced in the text. Reading the assigned chapters and having some familiarity
with them before class will greatly assist your understanding of the lecture. After
the lecture, you should study your n
otes and work relevant problems.
With
drawal (pass/fail)
This course strictly follows grading policy of
the School of
Engineering
and
Applied Science
. Thus, a student is normally expected to achieve a mark of at
least 60% to pass. In case of failure, he/she will be required to repeat the co
urse
the following term or year.
Cheating/plagiarism
Cheating or other plagiarism during the Quizzes, Mid

term and Final Examinations
will lead to paper cancellation. In this case, the student will automatically get zero
(0), without any considerations
.
Professional behavior guidelines
The students shall behave in the way to create favorable academic and professional
environment during the class hours. Unauthorized discussions and unethical
behavior are strictly prohibited.
