MEC3102 Fluid Mechanics

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Engineering & Surveying
School or Department : Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering


Pre-requisite: (MAT2500 and MEC2101) or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCEN or GDET or METC or MEPR or GCNS or GDNS or MENS


This course presents the fundamental concepts of fluid behaviour both under static and dynamic conditions. This course is designed to enable the student to analyse and design any practical systems in which fluid is the working medium. The contents of this course includes statics and dynamics of fluid flow, dimensional analysis, internal viscous flow (eg laminar and turbulent flows in pipes and ducts), viscous flow around bodies, boundary layer and compressible flow.
