 On completion of the course students should be able to: 1. Qualitatively describe and categorise fluid flow regimes, including internal vs external flows; laminar vs turbulent flows; boundary layers and velocity profiles; separation and wakes. 2. Appreciate the importance of Dimensional Analysis techniques and dimensionless parameters in fluid mechanics; Reynolds number; Mach number. 3. Calculate form and skin friction drag forces using appropriate drag formulae and coefficients. 4. Solve basic hydrostatics problems involving manometers and submerged surfaces. 5. Explain the significance of pressure gradients parallel to, and normal to a streamline. 6. Understand the concept of continuity, and be able to use the continuity equation to calculate the flow rate in a duct using an appropriate velocity profile; 7. Understand physical basis of Bernoulli's equation, and apply it in flow measurement (orifice and Venturi meter, Pitot-static tube), and to a variety of problems involving area change and height change. 8. Solve basic problems involving pressure losses through pipes and pipe bends and fittings. 9. Understand the basic Momentum equation and the concept of a control volume. Use the equation to calculate impulse and reaction forces due to the interaction of a fluid stream with objects, and pressure drops.
