Introduction to the fundamentals of fluid mechanics in the context of engineering applications. Topics covered include fluid properties, hydrostatics and pressure variations in non‐moving fluids, buoyancy, conservation laws of flowing fluids (mass, momentum, and energy), dimensional analysis, boundary layers, internal flow, external flow, drag and lift. Experimental uncertainty analysis is integrated into the course lecture and lab. Also, the evaluation of turbomachinery and use of pump/blower curves is addressed. Prerequisite: Grade of C‐ or higher in ENGR 381 and MATH 200.
