Fluid Mechanics
CVE 303 | MME | 1st Semester |  Download Courseware PDF

Course Synopsis

This course provides some basic principles of fluid mechanics. Fluid mechanics may be defined as the study of behaviour of fluids under the influence, of forces. These forces are stresses and velocities that occur in a Newtonian and non Newtonian fluid in motion or at rest. The course is thought under two broad topics Viz; fluid statics and fluid dynamics. Fluid statics is the study of forces which keeps fluids in static equilibrium while fluid dynamics deals with the motion of fluids and forces which keep them in motion. Fluid dynamics can be subdivided into hydrodynamics and gas dynamics. Hydrodynamics is the study of fluid flows where there are no density changes. The flow of liquids falls into this category mainly but it also includes the flow of gases at low speeds. A subdivision of hydrodynamics is called hydraulics, which is the study of flow where density changes occur such as high speed gases flow through conduits or over solid surfaces. Aerodynamics is the study of gas flow which combines both low speed and high speed flows. The course will consist of theory and laboratory practical experiments. It is believed that the course will cover both B.Eng and Bsc degree levels for most universities in the field of fluid mechanics. It could also serve as an introductory course for masters degree programme in fluid engineering for most universities all over the world.

The conditions for the use of fracture mechanics parameters such as the critical strain energy release rate (G1C), the critical strain energy release rate (K1C), J integral and crack tip opening displacement (CTOD) to establish tendencies to failure of materials will be strongly emphasised. Understanding of the mechanisms of fracture such as fatigue, corrosion fatigue, thermal fatigue, creep, and stress corrosion cracking will also be covered. The use of varied microscopy techniques for fracture studies (fractography) will be studied. The philosophy of performing failure analysis and steps involved in failure analysis investigations will be covered. Case studies on documented engineering failures and failure analysis reports will be discussed.

Course Synopsis

This course is an exploratory practical course in physics. It is designed for students in Physics and allied disciplines. It is a course designed so as to provide hands-on training in the use of some laboratory equipments as well as in report writing. As a practical course, the focus is to impart useful skills on the students in order to enhance their knowledge in Physics. Students are made to perform some experiments in the laboratory. These experiments are taking from mechanics and properties of matter and Optics, which are the core aspects of the Physics courses taking by students at the first semester of their 100 Level. Here, six major experiments are to be set and demonstrated for students. They are: i).Measurements, ii) Determination of acceleration due to gravity using spiral spring method, iii) Determination of acceleration due to gravity using compound pendulum method, iv) Determination of moment of inertia of a rigid body, v) Determination of refractive index of glass using rectangular prism, vi) Determination of refractive index of glass using triangular prism.
