Course Goals:
To master the elementary principles of fluid statics and dynamics. These include
control volume analysis and application of mass, momentum and energy
conservation principles. Topics include Bernoullis equation, laminar and turbulent
flows, viscous flows, dimensional analysis flow in pipes and pipe networks, boundary
layer theory and flow behavior in the presence of solid particles
