C E 360 Fluid Mechanics (3)
The course objective is to provide students with the fundamental physical and analytical principles of fluid mechanics through the understanding of the: conservation of mass, conservation of energy, and the conservation of momentum equations. The student will demonstrate the understanding of these fundamentals by solving problems dealing with: fluid properties, fluid statics, pressure on plane and curved surfaces, buoyancy and floatation, kinematics, systems, control volumes, conservation principles, ideal imcompressible flow, impulse-momentum, and flow of a real fluid.
Fluid mechanics is a prerequisite to all courses in hydrosystems and environmental engineering. It is typically offered fall and spring semesters and during summer session. A series of homework problems are assigned after each lecture and there are typically 3 examinations given during the semester and final examination during the final examination period.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
