Fluid Mechanics

MET 3200 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Studies underlying concepts, principles, and definitions relative to the behavior of fluids at rest and in motion. Covers physical properties of fluids, distribution of force and static pressure on walls containing fluids, and buoyancy and stability in submerged or floating bodies in static fluids. Studies principles, definitions, and characterization of fluid flow, the effect of moving flows in submerged bodies, and foundations of aerodynamics. Discusses approaches to solving engineering problems involving fluids in motion and applicability of principles of fluid flow in analysis, design, and/or selection of common engineering devices and systems.
