EVE 3185 - Fundamental Fluid Mechanics with Laboratory

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): SSE 3135 OR EVE 3135 with “C” or better, or permission of instructor

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): MTH 3420 and SSE 3160 OR EVE 3160; with “C” or better, or permission of instructor

Description: Students in this course are introduced to the basic principles of fluid mechanics and their use in hydraulic engineering. This course covers the properties of fluids and water, fluid statics, fluid kinematics, mass, energy, and momentum principles within fluid dynamics, dimensional analysis, and boundary layers. Students are introduced to the application of fluid mechanics principles to the analysis of flow in pipes and open channels, as well as forces on immersed bodies. This course contains a laboratory that reinforces fluid mechanics principles, such as hydrostatic forces and Bernoulli’s equation, as well as introductory hydraulic engineering applications, including flow in pipes, head loss, and open channel flow.

Cross Listed Course(s): SSE 3185
