introduces students to study of the mechanics of flow of liquids and gases
through pipes. This course extends the study of fluid statics and dynamics to
applications engineering such as in open channels, fluid machinery.
To be familiar
with all the basic concepts of fluids and fluid flow phenomenon, conservation
equations and their applications to fluid flow problems.
By the end of this
course, the student should be able to:
knowledge of fluid static principles.
knowledge of fluid dynamics principles.
knowledge of principles of fluid flow in pipes.
A student on
completing this course is expected to:
- Determine the
quantity and flow velocity of water through the pipes.
- Explain the
meaning of the various terminologies related to fluid mechanics.
Bernoulli’s equation in solving fluid mechanics problems.
- Carry out an
experiment of the flow velocity of water through a pipe.
