# MECH9261: Fluid Mechanics 2

### 2024 unit information

This unit aims to provide students with a detailed understanding of the theory and practice of fluid mechanics in the context of mechanical engineering. At the end of this unit students will have the ability to critically assess and solve problems commonly found in fluid mechanics practice, such as sizing pumps and piping systems, designing channels, and determining the lift and drag characteristics of submerged bodies. Additionally, they will develop a structured and systematic approach to problem solving. Course content will include dimensionless analysis, Bernoulli equation, pipe flow, frictional losses, laminar and turbulent boundary layers, open channel flow and hydraulic jump, lift and drag, compressible flow and shock waves, turbomachinery.

## Unit details and rules

 Prerequisites: ? AMME9261 or AMME9200 None MECH8261 Linear Mathematics, Vector Calculus, Differential Equations and Fourier Series

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

• LO1. determine the appropriate flow and geometrical parameters of pipe and duct systems, turbomachinery, sub- and supersonic nozzles, open channels in order to be able to design real world fluid systems
• LO2. solve fluid mechanics problems related to: turbulent and laminar pipe and duct flow, boundary layers, drag and lift on immersed bodies such as wings, turbomachinery - pumps, fans and turbines, compressible flow - including nozzles and shocks, open channel flow - constant and varying channels and hydraulic jumps
• LO3. simplify fundamental theory in order to use it in the analysis of real-world pipe flow, boundary-layer flow, lift and drag calculations, turbomachinery, compressible flow and open-channel flow calculations
