Engineering Fluid Mechanics (2203ENG)

This course presents the principles of fluid mechanics and the application of these principles to practical, engineering problems. Topics covered in the course will include fluid properties, fluid statics, fluid flow in closed conduits, fluid viscosity and turbulence, forces developed by fluids in motion, introduction to flow around submerged objects, lift and drag, open channel flow, pumps and turbines. Applications relevant to environmental engineering fields such as water and wastewater treatment, fluid storage and distribution systems and open channel flow are investigated. In addition, the study of energy processes for turbines and pumps provides an introduction to fluid power analysis.
