Class Format:Lecture and Exercise
Course Name : Automotive Engineering Automotive Engineering
Starts 1 : 2 Spring Semester 2 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory Compulsory
Lecturer : HOSSAIN Akter Designated Lecturer 

•Course Purpose
The purpose of this course is to understand the fundamental characteristics of fluid motions applied to many areas of fluid mechanics and learn the physical laws governing them.
Students will:
(1) understand the properties, basic principles, and concepts of fluids.
(2) learn about the basic equations derived from above, i.e. continuity equation, motion equation, and energy equation, and be able to use them in calculations, and
(3) comprehend the aspects and properties of fluids conceptually utilizing the engineering observations of practical examples.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Calculus 1, 2; Linear Algebra 1, 2; Fundamentals of Physics 1, 2, 3, 4;
Fundamentals of Chemistry 1, 2; Thermodynamics

•Course Topics
1. Properties of Fluid
2. Flow around bodies
3. Thermodynamics of fluid
4. Basic equations of fluid mechanics

Students will solve problems under faculty guidance.

Remarks: To obtain an excellent grade of this course, you have to prepare yourself properly by allocating enough time (i.e., it is your own duty/responsibility) for the assignment and final examination outside the course hours using the printed handouts of the lecture materials.

Printed handouts will be provided.

•Additional Reading
Fluid Mechanics; Robert A. Granger; Dover Publications (1995)

•Grade Assessment
Grades will be based on class participation, assignments and a final examination.

30% for attendance
30% for assignments
40% for final examination

The whole lecture schedules/plans (including the date of the assignment/report, and the date of the final examination and so on) will be announced at the first class of each semester. The contents of the lecture, based on the course topics, will be provided in every lecture. However, the items as stated above are subject to change with prior notice during the semester.

•Contacting Faculty
Students can ask questions at any time during classes.
Questoins during off-class hours can be asked at the lecturer's room (Engineering
