MET 315 - Fluid Dynamics
Fluid statics, continuity, Bernoulli, and the general energy equation, laminar and turbulent flow, friction losses in pipes and ducts, pump performance and selection, compressible flow, and fluid measurements. Four hours lecture per week.
Prerequisites: ETSC 311 with a grade C+ (2.3) or higher, and MET 314 and MET 314LAB and MET 327 and MET 327LAB. Co-requisite: MET 315LAB.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Develop an understanding of the practical aspects of fluid statics and continuity by relating theory to various applications.
- Learn to predict the flow rate of fluids in ducts and pipes for compressible and incompressible fluids.
- Demonstrate the ability to plan and conduct fluid mechanics experiments. Students will demonstrate the ability to write various types of test reports common in the engineering field.
- Earn terminology in the fluid dynamics technical field so that they may read, discuss and comprehend the relevant literature
- Demonstrate the ability to select proper instrumentation to support experiments.
- Perform computerized data analysis and be able to present and explain experimental results with clarity.
