UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
There will be a 1-day compulsory laboratory class for Online and On Campus students that will be held on the Lismore campus. Please refer to http://scu.edu.au/timetables for further information on timetables. It is assumed that students are familiar with the basic properties of fluids, principles of hydrostatics, and principles of conservation of mass, energy and momentum, (e.g. as taught in the unit CIVL2010 - Hydraulic Engineering Fundamentals) and have basic skills in working with simple differential equations.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
describe how and why boundary layers form in real fluid flows, and how this affects the behaviour of real moving fluids
employ dimensional analysis, physical modelling and computational fluid dynamics to investigate simple fluid dynamics problems
analyse simple non-uniform and unsteady flows of incompressible fluids in open channels.
Prescribed learning resources
- No prescribed texts.
Fully enclosed shoes are required to be worn during laboratory classes.
Prescribed Learning Resources may change in future Teaching Periods.
