CEE 3310 Fluid Mechanics

Course description

Covers hydrostatics, the basic equations of incompressible fluid flow, potential flow and dynamic pressure forces, viscous flow and shear forces, steady pipe flow, turbulence, dimensional analysis, laminar and turbulence boundary layer, flows around obstacles, and open-channel flow. Includes small-group laboratory assignments. Outcome 1: Develop an analytic foundation and physical/experiential sense in fluid statics and fluid dynamics. Outcome 2: Develop general skills in dimensional analysis. Outcome 3: Expand on students’ abilities to identify and analytically state and solve engineering problems. Outcome 4: Expand on students’ abilities to use engineering judgement to assess the correctness of a solution approach and solutions.

Prerequisite: Non-Cornell students must get permission of instructor to enroll.
