Course Objectives
To introduce fluid mechanics and establish its relevance in civil engineering; develop the
fundamental practical and theoretical principles governing the
behav
ior of static and flowing
fluids; and demonstrate how these are used in Civil Engineering.
Course Description:
This course introduces students to the subject of fluid mechanics. Fluid mechanics examine the
behavior of fluids, both liquids and gasses, at r
est and in motion. This examination will rely on
Newton’s laws of motion, as well as the fundamental thermodynamic principles of conservation
of mass and energy.
Learning Outcomes:
Each chapter in this book
begins with learning outcomes so that
students
can identify what
knowledge they s
hould be gaining by studying each
chapter
