Competency aims

The aim of the study unit is to give the student a knowledge on elementary fluid dynamics that has relevance in design and analyses of fluids at rest and in motion.

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 -Model laminar fluid flow using using finite element method (FEM) on COMSOL
