**COURSE OUTLINE**

**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

4.
architecture

5.
industry

6.
manufacturing

**LEARNING ACTIVITIES/TOPICS:**

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

Attendance:

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.

Extra
Credit:

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.
