Logo for Fluid Mechanics
This course introduces fluid mechanics, the study of how and why fluids (both gaseous and liquid) behave the way they do. This course focuses on applications to two specialized situations: flow in pipes and flow around submerged objects (wings for example). In particular, the student will learn to calculate pressure drops in piping systems and forces around submerged objects when exposed to flow. The course concludes with a brief introduction to the complexities of compressible flow, as... More
