CVE 361 Civil Engineering Fluid Mechanics Lab

Fall Semester

The main intent of this course is to supplement and enhance the material taught the Fluid Mechanics lectures via hands-on laboratory experiments.  Additionally, this course is designed to (1) provide experience with the setup, calibration, and execution of experiments; (2) demonstrate the important aspects of data analysis and evaluation; and (3) give experience designing and conducting experiments.  The course is split into two parts.  In the first part students conduct a series of experiments designed to demonstrate principles of fluid mechanics.  A wide range of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities are available for these experiments.  In the second part, students, working in teams, are required to design, construct, and execute an experiment of their own.  Technical writing is emphasized.  CVE majors only. Prerequisite: EGR 250  with a grade of 2.0 or higher. Corequisite: EGR 360
