GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS TO STUDENTS
FLUID MECHANICS AND MACHINERY LABORATORY 
The purpose of this laboratory is to reinforce and enhance your under-standing of the fundamentals of Fluid mechanics and Hydraulic machines.The experiments here are designed to demonstrate the applications of thebasic fluid mechanics principles and to provide a more intuitive and phys-ical understanding of the theory. The main objective is to introduce a vari-ety of classical experimental and diagnostic techniques, and the principlesbehind these techniques. This laboratory exercise also provides practicein making engineering judgments, estimates and assessing the reliability of your measurements, skills which are very important in all engineeringdisciplines.
Read the lab manual and any background material needed before youcome to the lab. You must be prepared for your experiments before comingto the lab. In many cases you may have to go back to your fluid mechanicstextbooks to review the principles dealt with in the experiment.
Please actively participate in class and don’t hesitate to ask questions.Pleaseutilize theteachingassistantsfully. Toencourageyou tobepreparedand to read the lab manual before coming to the laboratory, unannouncedquestions may be asked at any time during the lab.
Never carry out unauthorized experiments. Come to the laboratory pre-pared. If you are unsure about what to do, please ask the instructor.
Carelessness in personal conduct or in handling equipment may result inserious injury to the individual or the equipment. Do not run near mov-ing machinery. Always be on the alert for strange sounds. Guard againstentangling clothes in moving parts of machinery.
Students must follow the proper dress code inside the laboratory. To pro-tect clothing from dirt, wear a lab coat. Long hair should be tied back.Shoes covering the whole foot will have to be worn.

In performing the experiments, please proceed carefully to minimize any  water spills, especially on the electric circuits and wire.
Makeyourworkplacecleanbeforeleavingthelaboratory. Maintainsilence,order and discipline inside the lab.
Don’t use cell phones inside the laboratory.
Any injury no matter how small, must be reported to the instructor imme-diately.
Start writing your Laboratory records early, don’t wait till the day beforethe lab records are due. Most experiments require a significant amount of analysis, which cannot be done properly if you start one or two days beforethe due date. Start early and give yourself time to get help in case you runinto problems, we can not help you if you wait till the last moment.
Wish you a nice experience in this lab!ii
