ERT 205/3 FLUID MECHANICS ENGINEERING
This course covers and emphasizes fundamental concepts, principles, theories and problem-solving techniques pertaining to fluid properties, static and kinematics, control volume analysis, momentum analysis of flow system, dimensional analysis, internal flows (pipe flows), differential analysis, and open channel design. Upon the completion of this course, student would be able to design the right sizing of pipes and open channels and to analysis their flow characteristic.
Ability to analyze and interpret the essential parameters describing a fluid system and recognize the common devices used in measuring pressure and flow rates.
Ability to analyze and solve problem related to pressures, forces, and stability in static fluid systems in steady or unsteady, uniform or non-uniform, laminar and turbulent fluid.
Ability to design the open channel and related hydraulic structures using fundamental approaches such as Froude number and specific energy.
