FLUID MECHANICS AND HYDRAULIC MACHINES

v Objective:

The subject Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines is a continuation to the first part of the subject and is included with an objective to familiarize students with the concepts of turbines, pumps, hydrostatic forces, etc. This subject is a part of the syllabus for mechanical, civil, automobile and similar branches of engineering.

‘Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines’ subject deals with the study of impact of fluid jets, fluid dynamics and hydrostatic forces on surfaces. It includes the construction, working and applications of hydraulic turbines, centrifugal and reciprocating pumps, etc. Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines uses the concepts included in thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics-1 while solving numerical problems and are applied in various theorems and laws of different devices.

v Syllabus:

Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines includes topics like:

1)      Real Fluid Flows

2)      Fluid Dynamics

3)      Boundary Layer Flows

4)      Hydrostatic Forces on Surfaces

5)      Flow through Pipes

6)      Centrifugal Pumps

7)      Reciprocating Pumps

The subject demonstrates the application of the laws of Fluid Mechanics to a wide range of systems. Students are prepared to formulate and solve equations of the control volume for fluid flow systems and apply Bernoulli’s equation to various devices. It is used to evaluate hydrostatic forces on various surfaces and predict stability of floating bodies, apply fundamentals of compressible fluid flows to relevant systems and calculate resistance to flow of incompressible fluids through closed conduits and over surfaces.

v Study Material:

It is difficult to understand different concepts of Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines completely by just referring to books. That is where online educational portals with online courses, tutorials and video lectures come into play. It is easy for students to understand different topics and study a subject in video format!
