Fluid Mechanics: Course Description

Fluids and gasses are a rich source of energy and force, whether used to mix ingredients in a dinner recipe or to propel rockets into deep space. In this OpenCourseWare from Utah State University, fluids and gases are broken down into their component properties, including density, weight and viscosity. They are then analyzed for potential energy use. This course discusses the powers at play in flow and momentum principles, touching specifically on energy potential as it relates to pressurized systems. This undergraduate-level course also examines fluid measurement techniques that help determine hydraulic grade lines for drainage systems in urban settings. This free OpenCourseWare is taught by USU Professor Urroz, Ph.D.

Lecture notes and homework problems with solutions are available online. To take advantage of this free course, visit the mechanics of fluid and gas course page.
