This is a first course in fluid dynamics for mechanical engineering students. By the end of this course, students will be able to: identify, recognize and define basic concepts in fluid mechanics, and apply those concepts to solve practical problems encountered in mechanical engineering and other engineering disciplines.
The topics to be covered include: 1. Introduction
2. Fluid statics
3. Control volume analysis
4. Local analysis
5. Potential flow
6. Dimensional analysis
7. Pipe flow
8. Boundary layers
