ENG211 Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics

Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics concerns the continuous deformation of gases and liquids under shear stress. First we establish the properties of fluids and introduce hydrostatic principles before delving into dynamics of flow for incompressible fluids (mainly) water. In Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics you will learn how to formulate and solve fluid hydrostatics and pressure problems, analyse pipe flow situations using the Bernoulli equation, determine appropriate pump sizes for pipe systems, and analyse open channel flow situations using Manning's equation.
