Description

This course will provide a basic understanding of the behaviour of fluids on the macro- and micro- scale, where students are able to design pipe and pumping systems for single-phase fluids. There will also be unit conversion, dimensional analysis, and scale-up.

Learning Outcomes

At the completion of the course students will be able to
1. convert one set of units to another commonly encountered in engineering
2. carry out calculations for fluid mechanics involving static pressure, pipe flow profiles, pressure drop, pumping and other related topics
3. understand different types of flow measurement
4. have a practical understanding of uncertainties as seen in a laboratory flow system
5. write professional reports for an appropriate audience
5. be proficient at using Excel for fluid mechanics calculations
7. interpret and design systems with flows
8. source necessary information, data, literature, equipment, and materials
9. work as a team member and communicate with peer and staff
10. manage tasks timely not to cram.

Prerequisites

Subject to approval of the Dean of Engineering and Forestry.
