Course description

This course introduces the behaviour of fluids with a bias on liquids. It covers both the properties of fluids at rest (or relative equilibrium) looking at the forces exerted by the fluid on the surface and their effects, and the fluids in motion focusing on the change of energy as the fluid particles move from one place to another, and the impact of the force exerted by the moving fluid on the surface.


  • The aim of this course is to Guide the students’ understanding of the importance of fluids in engineering, derived from the principles of fluid Statics and dynamics together with the associated effect on contact surfaces. This will help the student in the design and analysis of hydraulic structures based on derived knowledge.
