|Subject Overview:|| |
At the conclusion of this subject students should have acquired an appreciation of problems involving fluids at rest and in motion and have developed a sound understanding of engineering hydraulics as applied to environmental and civil engineering situations.
Topics covered include fluid statics and kinematics of fluid motion; Bernoulli's equation, application of physical laws in solving flow problems via control volumes (involving the conservation equations of mass and momentum, the energy equation); dynamic similitude, dimensional analysis and physical scale modelling; flow in pipes, rotordynamic pumps, simple pipeline systems, pressure surges in pipes, discharge measurements in pipes; and flow past immersed bodies (introduction to boundary layer theory, lift and drag on immersed bodies).
|Assessment:||One written examination of 3-hour duration at the conclusion of the subject (85%) and one formal report on a 1-hour long experiment (15%) in the second half of the semester.|
