Fluid Mechanics pdf notes

Engineering Mechanics II

Fluid convergence on a shore.

Course Highlights

This course features a complete set of Prof. Madsen's hand-written lecture notes, and exams and assignments that were prepared by the instructor and teaching assistant David Gonzalez-Rodriguez.

Course Description

This subject provides an introduction to fluid mechanics. Students are introduced to and become familiar with all relevant physical properties and fundamental laws governing the behavior of fluids and learn how to solve a variety of problems of interest to civil and environmental engineers. While there is a chance to put skills from calculus and differential equations to use in this subject, the emphasis is on physical understanding of why a fluid behaves the way it does. The aim is to make the students think as a fluid. In addition to relating a working knowledge of fluid mechanics, the subject prepares students for higher-level subjects in fluid dynamics.
