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 content 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.
