Course Description ME330 is an introduction to fluid mechanics, in which students learn to apply the basic laws of mechanics (conservation of mass and energy, Newton’s laws) to a flowing fluid. This course provides the foundation for further course work in various areas of fluid mechanics. Also, through the study of several applications, students develop the tools needed to work with common fluid dynamic systems in practice. Course Objectives After completion of this course, students should be able to: General: Identify the properties characterizing a fluid and their dimensions. Define and explain the meaning of various dimensionless parameters, such as Reynolds and Mach numbers. Apply dimensional analysis and similitude to deduce dependencies and to scale experimental or theoretical results. Hydrostatics: Calculate pressures in static fluids. Use manometers to measure pressure. Determine forces and moments on submerged surfaces. Calculate buoyancy forces and determine stability of floating bodies. Hydrodynamics:
