The objectives of this course are to:
1. Develop a physical awareness of the phenomena of fluid
motion.
Course Objectives
2. Present the fundamental laws which govern all fluid
behavior and their applications.
3. Develop practical methodologies for solving engineering
flow problems.
4. Illustrate the extremely wide variety of fluid-related
phenomena in everyday life and in modern technology.
Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

## 1. Distinguish between states of matter, fluid types and types

of fluid flow. Analyze fluids at rest by applying principles
of hydro statics, including manometers.
2. Apply the concepts of Reynolds transport theorem,
integral forms of mass, momentum and energy
conservation equations for solving problems in steady,
incompressible flows.
Learning Outcomes
3. Analyze laminar and turbulent Flow in pipes. m Design
fluid delivery pipe system.
4. Apply the basic theory of dimensional analysis and
modeling to identify groups of dimensionless parameters
and predict performance of a prototype based on
measurements of performance of a model.
5. Analyze fluid flow domains using differential relations
and apply the differential forms of continuity, and
momentum equations.
