Description

This course considers the fundamental concept of fluid mechanics with an introduction to the fundamental conservation equations (in integral and differential forms). The course objective is to give the students the necessary theoretical understanding to analyse and solve complex engineering problems in fluid systems. Applications to a variety of topics are provided including fluid statics, experimental similitude, pipe systems, and turbo machinery.

Learning Outcomes

  • Students will demonstrate specialist knowledge and skills through analysis of complex fluids problems in the context of the field of mechanical engineering.

  • Analyze pressure distributions in static fluids
  • Develop and use integral relations to solve flow problems
  • Use the differential equations representing conservation of mass, momentum, and energy to evaluate simple flows
  • Develop dimensionless groups and apply dimensional analysis
  • Determine the frictional, and evaluate minor losses in pipe systems
  • Evaluate the performance of pumps and fans and select suitable pumps for given applications
  • Develop equations to flow over a flat  plate, predict flow separation, and determine the drag and lift forces on bodies.

Additional Course Outline Information

Academic integrity

Harassment
* Harassment of any sort will not be tolerated.  Each UC student is here to learn and to experience a friendly and supportive community.
* It is every student's right to expect: respect and courtesy from staff and other students, including freedom from harassment of any sort; fair treatment; the ability to speak out about any issues that concern them, without fear of consequences for their safety and well-being.
* Furthermore, each student has the responsibility to: respect the rights and property of others; attend to their own health and safety, and that of others; and behave in a manner towards each other that does not reflect badly on the student body or the University.
* If you, or someone you know, has experienced harassment, please talk to your lecturers, directors of study, or head of department.


Dishonest Practice
* Plagiarism, collusion, copying, and ghost writing are unacceptable and dishonest practices.
* Plagiarism is the presentation of any material (test, data, figures or drawings, on any medium including computer files) from any other source without clear and adequate acknowledgment of the source.
* Collusion is the presentation of work performed in conjunction with another person or persons, but submitted as if it has been completed only by the named author(s).
* Copying is the use of material (in any medium, including computer files) produced by another person(s) with or without their knowledge and approval.
* Ghost writing is the use of another person(s) (with or without payment) to prepare all or part of an item submitted for assessment.

Do not engage in dishonest practices. The Department reserves the right to refer dishonest practices to the University Proctor and where appropriate to not mark the work.
The University regulations on academic integrity and dishonest practice can be found here.
