ME2201: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics - NPS Online
Properties of fluids, hydrostatics and stability of floating and submerged bodies. Fluid flow concepts and basic equations in steady flows: mass, momentum, and energy considerations. Dimensional analysis and dynamic similitude. Viscous effects and fluid resistance. Basic pipe flows, Moody Diagrams and losses in components.
1. Develop a good understanding of fundamental fluid mechanics principles.
2. Analyze fluid forces on submerged bodies and buoyancy and stability of floating bodies.
3. Apply the integral forms of the governing equations mass, momentum and energy to simple problems.
