The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers its 'Engineering Mechanics II' course as free OpenCourseWare. The original course is required in both the undergraduate Civil and Environmental degree programs and applies the principles of solid mechanics learned in the previous course to fluids. Fluid mechanics studies the behavior of both liquids and gasses, and it investigates the ways that these fluids interact with solids.

Engineering Mechanics II: Course Description

Professor Ole Madsen taught the original 'Engineering Mechanics II' lecture course. It was designed for Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering students. Students in this 'Engineering Mechanics II' course learn fundamentals of fluid mechanics like the Bernoulli Equation, hydrostatics, fluid flow, turbulence and momentum. Then, they apply these principles to real-world engineering problems like pipe and channel flow. Students also explore the ways that fluids interact with devices like pumps, windmills and turbines that provide populations with water and energy.

'Engineering Mechanics II' OpenCourseWare includes lecture notes, a reading list, assignments and exams with solutions, recitation notes and problems and other downloadable course materials. If you are interested in taking this free course, navigate to the fluid mechanics course page.
