COURSE NUMBER EGR 212
COURSE TITLE: Applied Fluid Mechanics
COURSE HOURS BREAKDOWN: 4 credit hours --3 hours lecture --3 hours lab.
CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Topics include introduction to fundamental fluid mechanics theory including fluid properties, static fluids, kinematics of fluids, and the general energy equation. Applied topics include power requirements of hydraulic and turbo machinery, steady incompressible flow in pressure conduits and flaw measurements.
PREREQUISITES: EGR114, MAT 223 to be taken concurrently.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course, students should have the following information and skills:
1. A complete understanding of the basic principles of real live problems. The use of logical and methodical problem solving techniques.
2. These approaches will help the student in many fields, such as:
3. electromechanical engineering mechanical engineering
1. Properties of Fluids
2. Fluid Statics
3. Kinetics of Fluid Flow
4. Similitude and Dimensional Analysis
5. Steady Incompressible Flow in Pressure Conduits
6. Forces on immersed bodies and Steady Flow in Open Channels
7. Fluid Measurements

Because of the nature of the concepts to be discussed and because you are an integral part of the class and its success, you will need to attend every class. If an emergency prevents you from attending a class, you are responsible for finding out what you missed and you are responsible for obtaining notes frorn another student. This, however, cannot “make-up” for the lost experience.
Reading Assignments and Homework Problems:
This is a problem solving oriented subject. The more problems that you attempt to solve the better you will become at solving them. Even though the reading assignments are short their content is intense. Understanding the concepts is of vital importance to obtaining the skill you need to solve the problems.
Evaluation and Grading:
There will be 4 evaluations and one final. The final counts as 2 evaluations.
Evaluations-- 10 points each for a total of 40 points.
The final - 10 points.
There will be 12 homework assignments bich include in-class participation.
Homework --2 points for each assignment, for a total of 21 points.
Lab work vthich demands a complete lab report for each lab 31 points.
You can score a possible 102 points. 90 or more points equals a grade of 4.0 for an “A” This course will not be graded on a curve.
Optional extra points can be obtained by doing some problems by wñting a computer program to obtain a solution. These problems are marked with a “C “at the end of each chapter. The number of points for these problems depend on the problems difficulty and your programming approach. Each member of this class has been given access to the computer system on campus for the duration of this class.
