This class helps students to understand fluid mechanics concepts and help them to become able to do their university assignments and projects related to fluid mechanics.
I will cover FLUID MECHANICS, FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS, Cengel for undergrad courses. and for Graduate level I'm able to use the "Bird transport phenomena" and "fluid mechanics of kundo".
Curriculum for this class
PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS
This topic covers fundamental properties of fluids, including density, viscosity ad surface tension. It lays the groundwork for understanding fluid behavior.
PRESSURE AND FLUID STATICS
Examines how pressure varies in a fluid at rest and introduces concepts such as Pascal's law. Static equilibrium of fluids is discussed, including hydrostatic forces on surfaces. Furthermore, the buoyancy force will be discussed and related problems will be introduced and solved.
Focuses on the motion of fluids without considering the forces causing the motion. Describes concepts like streamline, pathline, and streakline, providing a foundation for fluid flow analysis.
BERNOULLI AND ENERGY EQUATIONS
Introduces Bernoulli's equation, which describes the relationship between pressure, velocity, and elevation in a fluid flow. The energy equation extends these concepts for energy analysis in fluid systems.
MOMENTUM ANALYSIS OF FLOW SYSTEMS
Applies Newton's laws to fluid motion, discussing the conservation of linear momentum and its application to analyze the forces and moments in fluid flow.
DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS AND MODELING
Introduces the Buckingham Pi theorem and dimensional analysis, providing a method to relate variables and derive dimensionless parameters. Scaling laws and similarity criteria are discussed.
Examines fluid flow within pipes and ducts. Covers topics like pipe flow, pipe networks, and pressure drop calculations in various internal flow configurations.
Likely focuses on the Blasius equation, which is a solution to the boundary layer equations for laminar flow over a flat plate. It's an essential topic in boundary layer theory.
Discusses lubrication as it relates to fluid mechanics. Covers the principles of fluid film lubrication and the analysis of lubrication regimes.
Analytical solution to Navier-Stokes equation
Explores the analytical solution to the Navier-Stokes equation, which is a set of partial differential equations that describe the motion of fluid substances.
Reynolds Transport Theorem
The Reynolds Transport Theorem is used to relate the time rate of change of a quantity for a system to the time rate of change observed within a control volume moving with the fluid. It provides a systematic way to incorporate both local and convective changes in a fluid system.
