Fluid Mechanics(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Fundamental and Applied Physics
Starts 1 : 3 Autumn Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory Elective
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
Thermodynamics, Elementary fluid mechanics/dynamics

•Course Topics
1.Vortex, circulation and integral of motion equation
2.Flow of incompressible non-viscous fluid
3.Flow of viscous fluid
4.Flow of compressible fluid

Printed handouts will be provided.

•Additional Reading
