Fluid Mechanics (CIT-215)
A study of pressure, flow, and viscosity in fluids. Forces on submerged areas and buoyancy are computed. Friction losses in pipelines, valves and fittings are calculated, series piping systems are analyzed, and pumps are sized. Applications include analysis of flow through non-circular sections. Computer software programs are used to analyze and solve typical problems. Prerequisite: MET 112. 3 lecture hours and 1 laboratory hour per week. 3 credit hours.
