CHEME 3230 - Fluid Mechanics

Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: ENGRD 2190  and MATH 2930 .

S. Hormozi.

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.

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.

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.

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