Fluid flow and practical fluid mechanics is essential to any engineer’s knowledge base. This course will overview the basic principles of fluid flow including the three key attributes to solve all fluid problems. Bernoulli Equation will be discussed in detail to enable understanding of different types of energy in a fluid stream. Laminar and turbulent flow, head loss, and factors affecting head loss will also be dicussed in detail and explained with practical problems.
