## CE8302 – SYLLABUS

### UNIT I FLUID PROPERTIES AND FLUID STATICS

Fluid — definition, distinction between solid and fluid — Units and dimensions — Properties of fluids — density,  specific  weight,  specific  volume,  specific  gravity,  viscosity,  compressibility,  vapour pressure, capillarity and surface tension — Fluid statics: concept of fluid static pressure, absolute and gauge pressures — pressure measurements by manometers-forces on planes — centre of pressure — buoyancy and floatation.

### UNIT II FLUID KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS

Fluid Kinematics — Classification and types of flow — velocity field and acceleration — continuity equation (one and three dimensional differential forms)- stream line-streak line-path line- stream function — velocity potential function — flow net. Fluid dynamics — equations of motion -Euler?s equation along a streamline — Bernoulli?s equation — applications — venturi meter, orifice meter and Pitot tube- linear momentum equation and its application to pipe bend.

### UNIT III DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS AND MODEL STUDIES

Fundamental dimensions — dimensional homogeneity — Rayleigh?s method and Buckingham Pi- theorem — dimensionless parameters — similitudes and model studies — distorted models.

### UNIT IV FLOW THROUGH PIPES

Reynold?s experiment — laminar flow through circular pipe (Hagen poiseulle?s) — hydraulic and energy gradient — flow through pipes — Darcy — Weisbach?s equation — pipe roughness -friction factor- Moody?s diagram- major and minor losses of flow in pipes — pipes in series and in parallel.

### UNIT V  BOUNDARY LAYER

Boundary layer — definition- boundary layer on a flat plate — laminar and turbulent boundary layer- displacement, energy and momentum thickness — Momentum integral equation-Boundary layer separation and control — drag on flat plate.
