Unit Code: PHY604

Unit Title: Fluid Mechanics

This unit further explores the fluid concepts introduced in PHY501 – Fundamentals of Physics. This is an introductory course in Fluid Mechanics. The subject Fluid Mechanics has a wide scope and is of prime importance in several fields of engineering and science. The unit emphasizes the fundamental underlying fluid mechanical principles and application of those principles to solve real life problems. Special attention is given towards deriving all the governing equations starting from the fundamental principle. There is a well-balanced coverage of physical concepts, mathematical operations along with examples and exercise problems of practical importance. After completion of the unit, students will have a strong fundamental understanding of the basic principles of Fluid Mechanics and will be able to apply the basic principles to analyse fluid mechanical systems.
