## 6 points, SCA Band 2, 0.125 EFTSLRefer to the specific census and withdrawal dates for the semester(s) in which this unit is offered.
## SynopsisAn introduction to momentum transfer. Topics include fluid statics; differential and integral balances of mass, momentum and energy; flow measurement; pipe flow and frictional losses; dimensional analysis; pumps; compressible flow. ## Objectives
- Calculate fluid forces acting on bodies which are partially or fully submerged in fluids.
- Use control volumes to predict fluid behaviour with particular regard to the principles of continuity, momentum and energy, and the Bernoulli equation.
- Use dimensional analysis and modelling to plan experiments, to present results meaningfully and to predict prototype performance.
- Calculate lift and drag forces for bodies subjected to fluid motion.
- Compute flow rates in pipe networks under steady state conditions.
- Understand the typical operation and applications of Pumps and Compressors, their capabilities and limitations, and operating parameters that significantly affect performance
- To describe the nature of two-phase flows and to use simple models for prediction of pressure drops in such flows
- To classify non-Newtonian Fluids, use constitutive equations for these fluids to predict pressure drops in different flows
- Carry out simple experiments relating to fluid properties and flow behaviour.
