Competency aims

The aim of the course is to give the student
knowledge of elementary fluid dynamics. The
student should also be able to analyze and design
pipe flow systems including pumps.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course the student is
expected to

  • Know some basic characteristics of fluids
    like density, viscosity etc.
  • Determine pressure drops, levels, flows and
    velocities in pipe flow systems by using the
    Bernoulli equation.
  • Determine pressure drops caused by frictional
    losses in pipe flow systems.
  • Determine the power for a pump in a
    pipe flow system
