Course Objectives This course aims to develop an understanding of the characteristics of fluids, to teach the principles of fluid mechanics and the analysis and modeling of fluid flow in closed systems observed in mechanical engineering applications, to derive differential equations related to the fluid motion, to apply conservation principles of momentum, mass and mechanical energy.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • recognize the type of fluid-flow occurring in a physical system.
  • formulate a mathematical description of a simple fluid-flow system.
  • calculate accelerations and pressure variations in fluid motion by using Euler’s and Bernoulli’s equations, and lift and drag forces for simple aerodynamic shapes.
  • analyze momentum fluxes through a control volume.
  • use appropriate fluid mechanical principles and conservation laws for momentum, mass and energy in combination to control volumes in ideal fluids.
Course Content Fundamental concepts. Properties of fluids. Fluid statics. Pressure distribution in fluids at rest. Fluids in motion. Pressure changes in fluid movement. Velocity and acceleration fields. Fluid Dynamics. Control volume analysis: Reynolds transport theorem. Momentum, mass and energy balances. The Bernoulli's equation. Fluid Kinematics.
