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
