Course Description

Course Objectives

To make the students develop and enhance the knowledge and awareness of fluid mechanics and its applications in practice. The students will be introduced to fluid properties and hydrostatics forces and learn to link the concepts and applications of Bernoulli’s & Euler’s to flowing fluids, the concept of control volume approach including the principles and applications of continuity, momentum, energy and the study the concept of dimensional analysis and its importance for analyzing model studies and for correlating the results of experimental research to their everyday world and previously learned concepts. However, the students should have background knowledge in statics and calculus.

Expected Course Outcomes

Upon completion of this course the student should be able to understand the following:

  • Fluid Properties.

  • Fluid Statics on Plane and Curved Surfaces. Concept of buoyancy, Stability of Immersed and Floating Bodies.

  • One-Dimensional Continuity, Bernoulli's and Euler’s Equations and its applications.

  • Impulse & Momentum Principales and its applications.

  • Energy Equations and its applications.

  • The Concept of Dimensional Analysis and Similitude.

Extending the student’s knowledge of concepts of fluid mechanics and its application in practice, and learning the analysis and problem solving pertinent to the mechanics of fluid flow.


Attendance: Class attendance is obligatory. Excusable absence must be verified according to university regulations.

Assignments: Homework must be the student’s individual work, and be submitted on the due date at the beginning of class. No credit will be given for late homework.

Projects: Regulations for the project assignment will be announced later on.

Exams: There will be no make-up exams given, unless the student had emergency surgery, an accident, or similar emergency on the day of the exam. The grade will be zero form missed exam.

Conduct in the classroom: While in the class room, cell phones and laptops should be turned off. Students Should keep the classroom quiet and come to class on time, and not step outside during the lecture.

Course components

  • Books (title , author (s), publisher, year of publication)

  • Homework and laboratory guide (s) if (applicable).

  • Fluid Properties: Density & Surface Tension Center of Pressure on a Submerged Plane Surface Impact of a Jet of Water Fluid Meters in Incompressible Flow Pipe Flow Pressure Distribution about a Circular Cylinder Drag Force Determination.

  • Cognitive skills (thinking and analysis)

  • The students should link the scientific concepts they are learning with real applications by giving live examples where the subject concepts are applied.

  • Communication skills (personal and academic)

  • Students gain a lot of information by searching through the internet and references and from local firms in order to solve problems relevant to this course.

  • Practical and subject specific skills (Transferable Skills)

  • The knowledge of fluid mechanics is of practical importance for engineers who wish to be specialized in thermo-fluid sciences and is of importance also for industry and other advanced courses. To teach the student the basic concepts of fluid mechanics in order to go forward in under standing other advanced topics in mechanical engineering.
