Course Description

A calculus-based course that explores the properties of fluids in various states and their reaction to forces acting on them in the context of practical engineering systems. Topics include: fluid behavior and fluid properties; hydrostatic pressure and forces; buoyancy and stability; conservation of mass, momentum, and energy; control volumes and system representations; dimensional analysis and similitude; scale analysis and modeling; internal and external flows; laminar and turbulent flows; fluid flow in pipes and ducts; friction, major losses, and minor losses; boundary layer characteristics, drag, and lift.
