EGR 360 Fluid Mechanics


This course serves as an introduction to fluid mechanics. In previous courses the basic laws for solids have been developed and implemented. The intent of this course is to formulate and apply analogous laws for fluids. The initial portion of the class focuses on defining a fluid and its properties. This is followed by an analysis of fluids at rest (hydrostatics) and the forces they impart on mechanical objects such as dams. The final portion of the class covers fluids in motion. A variety of analysis techniques are covered. Once developed, these analysis techniques are used to investigate a range of fluid dynamics problems such as the flow within piping systems, and external aerodynamic drag forces. Prerequisite: 2.0 or higher in MAT 272  (Differential Equations), ME 250 or EGR 250  (Statics).
