The website

presents
the course syllabus and a course outline showing and lab schedules.
Pertinent information will be e
-
mailed to the class in a timely manner
; students’ SPSU

e
-
mail address will be used.


Students with disabilities should contact ATTIC as soon as possible
to insure appropriate
accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion.


Course Objectives:

Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics will be
demonstrated in a series
of laboratory exercises.

Hands
-
on experience and communication skills will be achieved.


Course

Objectives:

Students w
ill be able to do the following:

1.

Read and follow directions for laboratory experiments.
(a,c,f,l)

2.

Operate fluid flow equipment and instrumentation.

(a,c,l)

3.

Collect and analyze data using fluid mechanics principles and
experimentation
methods.

(a,c,f,l)

4.

Prepare reports following accepted writing and graphical techniques.

(g)

5.

Perform exercises in small teams
. (e)

6.

Demonstrate principles discussed in Fluid Mechanics lecture course
.

(a,c,f,l)

7.

Demonstrate appropriate work habits consistent w
ith industry standards.



Prerequisites:

ENGR

3121, ENGL 2010, MATH 2254.
ENGR 3343 may be taken
concur
r
ently.

Any student not meeting these requirements should contact the Instructor.
If it is noted during the semester that these requirements have no
t be met, the Instructor
may remove the student from the class and award a W or WF as appropriate.


Procedures and

Credits:

Experiments will be performed in small, assigned groups. Individual reports will be
prepared. A student must participate in collec
ting all lab data used in a report. Reports
are due one week after performing the lab exercise. Late reports will receive reduced
credit; a report over two
-
weeks late will not receive credit. Reports are graded on a 0 to
10 scale.

Lab report grades are

based on the following factors;

a. Technically correct

b. Grammatically correct

c. Adherence to the assigned Format

d. On
-
time


A schedule of lab experiments for each group is presented on the MET website.
It is the
student’s responsibility to know when
a lab is schedule, what lab is to be performed,
and the

location of the Lab.

Only one lab station per experiment is available; so
students have to rotate through the experiments. An acceptable work ethic requires that
an individual meets expectations.

Ea
ch lab session will include a discussion of the fluid principle involved, details of the
report, and the operation of the equipment.


Text:
The text required by the lecture course is acceptable.
