Course Description

05-223 Fluid Mechanics W(3-2)

Analysis of steady ideal and viscous fluid flow systems using the Continuity, Bernoulli and Momentum equations. Boundary layer theory is treated in terms of viscous and pressure drag, lift and its importance in heat and mass transfer. Dimensional analysis and dynamic similitude are studied to provide an understanding of flow systems analysis and modelling. Introduction to pipe flow and open channel flow.

Prerequisites: 05-121,63-121.
