MET 315LAB - Fluid Dynamics Laboratory
Practical application of fluid mechanics principles, labs include fluid properties, buoyancy forces, Bernoulli and fluid energy, fluid friction, pump performance and related measurement systems. Lab is two hours per week plus an associated lecture for four hours per week.
Prerequisite: ETSC 311 with a grade of C+ (2.3) or higher and MET 314 and MET 314LAB and MET 327 and MET 327LAB.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Assess the practical aspects of fluid statics & continuity by relating theory to various applications.
- Apply the Bernoulli equation and the general energy equation and evaluate the energy content within a flowing fluid.
- Predict the flow rate of fluids in ducts and pipes for compressible and incompressible fluids.
- Calculate and use dimensionless numbers such as Reynolds number, lift and drag coefficients, etc.
- Investigate terminology in the fluid dynamics technical field so that they may read, discuss and comprehend the relevant literature.
- Plan and conduct fluid mechanics experiments.
- Select proper instrumentation to support experiments and will calibrate various sensors and connect sensors to data acquisition systems.
- Perform computerized data analysis and be able to present and explain experimental results with clarity.
- Write various types of test reports common in the engineering field.
