COURSE DESCRIPTION
Why are we studying fluid mechanics in a Civil and Environmental Engineering course?
Fluid mechanics is involved in nearly all areas of Civil and Environmental Engineering either
directly or indirectly. Some examples of direct involvement are those where we are concerned
with manipulating the fluid:
o
Sea and river (flood) defences;
o
Water distribution / sewerage (sanitation) networks;
o
Hydraulic design of water/sewage treatment works;
o
Dams;
o
Irrigation;
o
Pumps and Turbines;
o
Water retaining structures.
And some examples where the primary object is construction, yet analysis of the fluid mechanics
is essential are:
o
Flow of air in and around buildings; bio-climatic building design
o
Air Pollution dispersion and control
o
Bridge piers in rivers;
o
Ground-water flow.
Notice that nearly all of these applications involve either water or air. The following course will
be introducing generic fluid flow ideas and principles, and will demonstrate many of these
principles through relevant examples. Further to the laboratory coursework (CEE272) associated
with this class, there will be interactive multi-media demonstrations and illustrations of fluid
phenomena in the class.
AIMS
The aims of the course are to:

Introduce the basic language of fluid dynamics (pressure, streamlines, lift, drag etc.).

Familiarise students with the scope and applications of fluid mechanics.

Introduce the control volume concept

Teach the conservation of mass, momentum and energy equations, both for systems and
for control volumes.

Show how velocity and pressure are related.

Introduce the fundamentals of conduction, convection and radiation heat transfer.

Examine engineering applications, such as buoyancy, flow measurement, lift and drag
forces, etc.

Demonstrate the application of basic principles of Fluid Dynamics to civil and
environmental engineering problems.
OBJECTIVES
At the end of the course students should be able to:

Understand the concepts of mass, momentum, heat and energy in Thermofluid
Mechanics.

Understand the basic principles of hydrostatics.

Understand how to use manometers and other systems in the measurement of fluid flows.

Identify a thermofluid system or control volume and the flows of mass, momentum, heat
and work that are associated with a given problem.

Understand the origin of lift and drag.

Apply the conservation of mass (continuity) equation, the conservation of momentum
equation and the First Law of Thermodynamics (SFEE) to a control volume.

Decide when it is possible to apply Bernoulli's equation to fluid flows and to apply it.

Understand the concept of thermal conductivity/resistance.

Analyse 1-dimensional heat conduction problems.

Understand the fundamental relationships of fluid dynamics and apply them to
engineering problems.
