1 CE321: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics Fall 2009 Text: A Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Fourth Edition, D.F. Young, B.R. Munson and T.H. Okiishi, Wiley Objectives: To gain a basic understanding of the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and acquire experience in some applications to engineering practice. At the end of the semester, you are expected to know the following: 1. Calculate pressure in a static liquid; derive manometer equations; calculate the magnitude and location of fluid forces on a plane surface 2. Determine changes in fluid pressure with the Bernoulli Equation 3. Use conservation of mass, energy and momentum to analyze or design a flow system 4. Use dimensional analysis to present experimental data 5. Analyze flow in simple pipe systems that incorporate friction losses and minor losses; design simple pipe systems 6. Use Manning’s Equation and weir equations to analyze simple flow situations in a channel 7. Write technical lab reports and memos based on quantitative data that were obtained to answer specific questions 8. Conduct lab experiments and interpret data to answer specific questions 9. Function successfully as a part of team to conduct, analyze, and report the results of an experimental investigation 10. Recognize the importance of professional and ethical responsibility and practice those concepts in the conduct of this class. 11. Understand the process and importance of professional licensure HELPFUL INFORMATION My Teaching Philosophy: My goal in teaching is to prepare students to become confident and responsible professionals. My approach to teaching involves being a facilitator in the learning process as opposed to being an authoritarian favoring one-way transfer of information. My objectives, therefore, are to understand and respect individual differences in learning and do the best that I can to promote learning in the classroom by working with individual differences rather than against them. At the same time, I wish to impart technical skills and a sense of responsibility by encouraging students to play the role of professionals in the classroom. I expect students to put their best effort in this course. This involves participating in the in-class
