ENAM12003 Engineering Fluids

Course details

This course introduces students to key concepts and principles required to analyse problems involving engineering fluids. They explain how fluid properties relate to one another, apply principles of fluid statics, and analyse force and power associated with fluid flow. Students analyse head loss and pump performance in pipe systems, select fluid machines for given applications, and analyse drag acting on bodies in fluid flow. They prepare technical and laboratory reports that demonstrate critical evaluation of results and experimental uncertainties. Students are required to show they work productively, both individually and collaboratively, to solve problems, and document and communicate their work clearly in a professional manner.
A compulsory residential school is provided to promote development of course learning outcomes.
