Technologists have a particular need to understand the behaviour of fluids. This course presents the fundamental concepts of fluid behaviour, under both static and dynamic conditions, and is designed to give you the ability to analyse many practical problems in which fluid is the working medium. The aims of this analysis are to estimate forces of objects due to the fluid which can be either static or flowing, to detect causes of decline in performance, and to recommend solutions to prolong the life and improve efficiencies of fluid systems. Heat transfer in its three different modes is also introduced to enable you to analyse simple thermal systems.
