CHEME 3230 - Fluid Mechanics

Spring. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: CHEME 2190 , ENGRD 2190 , and MATH 2930 .

R.N. Zia.

Fundamentals of fluid mechanics. Macroscopic and microscopic balances. Applications to problems involving viscous flow.

Outcome 1: Demonstrate the ability to explain the physical mechanisms governing fluid behavior in a variety of materials and settings. (a,g)

Outcome 2: Solution of the equations of motion: solution of the microscopic balance equations for hydrostatics, unidirectional flows, boundary layer flows, and other simple flow situations. (a,e,k)

Outcome 3: Solving engineering fluid dynamics applications involving macroscopic mass and momentum balances, and Bernoulli’s equations. Use of macroscopic balances together with unidirectional flow analysis. (a,e,k)

Outcome 4: Understanding the role of nonlinearity, instability, and turbulence in fluid dynamics. (a,g)
