INSTRUCTION DIVISION FIRST SEMESTER 2012-2013 Course Handout (Part II) Date: 03.08.2012 In addition to Part I (General Handout for all courses appended to the Time Table), this portion gives further specific details regarding the course. Course No. : CE C371 Course Title : Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics Instructor-in-charge : SANGHAMITRA KUNDU Instructor : Anupam Singhal Course Description: Turbulent flow through conduits; lift and drag; pipe networks; boundary layer theory; open channel flow; uniform and varied flow; hydraulic jump; elements of sediment transport; introduction to hydrology and hydrological cycle; elements of meteorology; precipitation; mean depth of rainfall over area; evaporation, transpiration and evapo-transpiration; interception and infiltration; run off and factors affecting run-off; unit hydrograph; methods of determination of run-off. Scope and Objective of the Course: The problems encountered by man in the field of water supply, irrigation, navigation and waterpower, resulted in the development of the fluid mechanics. Fluid mechanics is that branch of science, which deals with the behavior of the fluids at rest as well as in the motion. This course will stress the governing principles of Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics; the assumptions made in their development and their limits of applicability, and will show how the principles can be applied to the solution of practical engineering problems such as water supply systems, waste water treatment facilities, dam spillways, flow-meters, hydraulic shock absorbers etc. Different kinds of flow of fluid under different conditions have also been included so that the students learn to apply in practical life.
