Fluid Mechanics

Course Summary

This course is based on Multimedia Engineering Fluid Mechanics made available by University of Oklahoma.
This is an introductory course in fluid mechanics based on the excellent multimedia ebook developed in University of Oklahoma. The material include case studies, examples and simulations with visually appealing graphics for illustration purposes. Topics covered include fluid statics and kinematics, fundamental laws, Navier-Stokes and Euler's equations, modeling and similitude, inviscid flow, viscous flow, drag, lift, boundary layer and open-channel flow. (Video lectures are not available for this course but the excellent content available more than make up for it)
