What you'll learn
  • Determine the variation of pressure in a fluid at rest
  • Calculate the forces and moments exerted by a fluid at rest on plane or curved submerged surfaces
  • Have a working knowledge of viscosity and the consequences of the frictional effects it causes in fluid flow
  • Calculate the capillary rise (or drop) in tubes due to the surface tension effect
  • Utilize Integral relations for a control volume and differential relations for fluid particles to analyze fluid flow problems.
  • Use control volume analysis to determine the forces associated with fluid flow
Requirements
  • Physics and Calculus
Description

Introduction to fluid properties, viscosity, surface tension, pressure distribution in fluid, hydrostatic forces on plane and curved surfaces, buoyancy , and pressure measurement using manometers and barometers. Integral relations for a control volume, mass conservation, linear momentum equation, energy and Bernoulli equations are discussed.

37 problems are solved in order to bridge the gap between knowledge and application.
