EGM-331 Fluid Mechanics

Fundamental fluid statics: manometer, forces on submerged surfaces, Archimedes' principle. Details of course include one-dimensional incompressible flow; conservation laws and application to flowing systems, cavitation, impulse-momentum problems, vanes; pipe flows, laminar analyses, turbulent flows with emphasis on calculation of fluid properties. Other topics include one-dimensional compressible flow; conservation laws, specialization to isentropic situation, nature of speed of sound. Applications including effects of area change, converging and diverging nozzles, choking phenomena's, and normal shock waves.

Advisory: It is strongly recommended that you do not take any of the Nuclear Engineering Technology and Radiation Protection area of study courses unless your math skills, up to and including derivatives and integrals, are current. Students are responsible for making sure that they have the necessary knowledge.
