MET 2301 Fluid Mechanics
Essentials of fluid properties, fluid statics, flow measurements, force of a fluid jet including turbo machinery, open channel flow losses through flow in pipe and duct and pump and fan performance and operation. Two classroom, two lab hours per week.
Prerequisites: MET 2201 or MEE 2101
- Apply basic fluid concepts to determine the flow of water through an open channel.
- Develop free body diagrams and apply the concepts of statics to illustrate force equilibrium in a fluid medium.
- Look up and apply basic fluid properties, use properties in the solution of fluid problems, and use instrumentation to measure viscosity, density and specific gravity.
- Apply Bernoulli's equation to solve fundamental fluid problems including the measurement of fluid flow.
- Calculate the frictional losses of a piping system.
- Use existing data to determine aerodynamic effects of moving a body through a fluid medium.
- Using the concepts of applied physics, determine the force of a fluid stream on flat plates and on pipe bends.
