EGM-331 Fluid Mechanics
Fundamental fluid statics: manometer, forces on submerged surfaces, Archimedes' principle. Details of course include one-dimensional incompressible flow; conservation laws and application to flowing systems, cavitation, impulse-momentum problems, vanes; pipe flows, laminar analyses, turbulent flows with emphasis on calculation of fluid properties. Other topics include one-dimensional compressible flow; conservation laws, specialization to isentropic situation, nature of speed of sound. Applications including effects of area change, converging and diverging nozzles, choking phenomena’s, and normal shock waves.
