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

Course Outcomes
  • 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.
