9/2/2008 1 Fluid Mechanics 3502 Day 1 Syllabus Introduction Fluid Properties Part I Introduction y Fluid Mechanics SMU y Four tools of fluid mechanics Fluid Mechanics –For Civil Engineers is all about SMU Storing- Moving- Using- To design and manage these systems we need to know The STATE of the Fluid ll f CE PRE RE d VELOC TY --- Usually for CE PRESSURE p and VELOCITY v The interaction of the fluid with its surroundings (Forces) Most problems in CE 3502 will involve finding --- a pressure, a velocity, or a force (energy-work-power) We use 4 sets of tools to determine the State and Forces e.g., Density, Specific Weight, Viscosity 1. Knowing Fluid Properties Response to shear stress Four tools of Fluid Mechanics
