CIT 215 - Fluid Mechanics

This course is a study of pressure, flow, and viscosity in fluids. Forces on submerged areas and buoyancy are computed. Friction losses in pipelines, valves and fittings are calculated, series piping systems are analyzed. Pumps are also sized. Applications include analysis of flow through non-circular sections. Computer software programs are used to analyze and solve typical problems.
