Syllabus ME 33, Fluid Flow, Section 1 Fall Semester 2005 Lectures : Room 135 Reber Building three times per week on Mon, Wed., and Fri., 12:20 - 1:10 p.m. Text : Fluid Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications , Y. A. Çengel and J. M. Cimbala, McGraw-Hill, New York, 2006 - required . Prerequisites : E Mch 12, Math 230 or 231, Math 251, and ME 23 or 30 or equivalent. Instructor : John M. Cimbala, Professor of Mechanical Engineering. www.mne.psu.edu/cimbala , 814-863-2739, jmc6@psu.edu . Office hours and schedule posted on website. Course Description : This course is an introduction to fluid mechanics, and emphasizes fundamental concepts and problem-solving techniques. Topics to be covered include fluid properties, fluid statics, fluid kinematics, control volume analysis, dimensional analysis, internal flows (pipe flows), differential analysis (including approximations such as creeping flow, potential flow, and boundary layers), and external flows (lift and drag). Brief introductions to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and turbomachinery (pumps and turbines) will also be provided. Students are expected to read the assigned portions of the text ! Students are also expected to be proficient in applying mathematics (e.g., integration, differentiation, and application of differential equations), statics and dynamics (e.g., free body diagrams), and thermodynamics (e.g., the first law, systems, and control volumes). Course Objectives : Upon completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Articulate the properties that distinguish fluids from other forms of matter, and the broad range of engineering applications which involve fluid mechanics. 2.
