 Course Name Turkish Akışkanlar Mekaniği English Fluid Mechanics Course Code KMM 220 Credit Lecture (hour/week) Recitation (hour/week) Laboratory (hour/week) Semester 4 3 3 - - Course Language Turkish Course Coordinator Şerife Birgül Ersolmaz Course Objectives 1. To train students to acquire the knowledge and skills to analyze fluid properties and flow parameters. 2. To train students to acquire the skills to model fluid behavior using fundamental laws of physics and solve the model equations using analytical methods. 3. To provide students with real life engineering examples and train them to design flow systems. Course Description Properties of fluids, Fluid statics, Fluid flow, Basic equations, Mechanical energy equation, Macroscopic and microscopic mometum balances, Incompressible flow in pipes and channels, External flow, Pumps, Flow measurement. Course Outcomes Students will be able to: 1. Describe and explain fundamental concepts in fluid mechanics. 2. Determine and analyze fluid properties and flow parameters. 3. Solve problems involving static fluids (hydrostatics) such as pressure distributions, forces and torques, and buoyancy forces. 4. Use macroscopic mass, momentum and mechanical energy balances, appropriate fluid properties, and unit conversion factors to determine properties such as pressure, force, torque, mechanical work, power, and velocity that are associated with the transport of fluids within process units: along walls, through networks of pipes, around submerged objects. 5. Solve problems involving pumps and piping systems (i.e. friction loss, pressure drop, pipe diameter, and flow rate. 6. Set up microscopic momentum balances (e.g. Cauchy or Navier-Stokes), make reasonable simplifying assumptions, solve using appropriate analytical methods and apply appropriate boundary conditions to arrive at a predictive model for fluid flow within a particular geometry. 7. Develop mathematical models for mass flow rate, mean velocity, volumetric flow rate, power, torque, and force by starting with an analytical expression for pressure or velocity as a function of position to arrive at macroscopic fluid and mechanical properties. 8. Solve problems involving flow over common geometries and calculate the drag force.
