MOHAWK VALLEY COMMUNITY COLLEGE
ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY & THE TRADES DEPTARTMENT
(previously MT252 Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer
This course covers the fundamental topics and appl
ications of fluid mechanics.
fluid properties, fluid statics, conservation of energy and mass, pipe and duct flow, pumps, and
measurement of fluid properties and states.
An introduction to heat transfer is included,
applying theory to ther
mal and hydraulic systems.
MA121 Fundamentals of College Mathematics or a higher level mathematics
course which includes trigonometry, or permission of the De
an of Mathematics, Engineering,
Physical Sciences, and Applied Technology.
Applied Fluid Mechanics
This course is intended to introduce Mechanical Engineering Technology students to the
behavior of flui
ds and the flow of heat in the context of standard engineering applications. Upon
completion, the student should have both a qualitative and quantitative understanding of thermal
and hydraulic systems, and be able to assist in product design or testing of
Student learning outcomes:
The student will be able to explain the behavior of fluids and the flow of heat in the context
of standard engineering applications.
The student should have both a qualitative and quantitative understanding of t
hydraulic systems, and be able to assist in product design or testing of such systems.
The student will be able to demonstrate their understanding of energy relationships in a fluid
flowing through a system of valves and piping.
The student wi
ll be able to analyze a typical piping circuit for pressure drops and power
requirements and flow rates.
The student will be able to determine the heat flow through typical walls and heat
The student will demonstrate their skills using spreads
heets to analyze problems in fluid
