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:
understand the physical and mathematical foundations of fluid mechanics
perform basic calculations to analyse fluid flow systems
determine when viscous and compressible effects are important in fluid flows and how to use dimensional analysis for categorisation of flows
design industrial systems involving fluid flow
make measurements in fluid flows
develop skills in effectively and safely using laboratory equipment in a team environment for experimental investigation of fluid flow phenomena, and in reporting findings
understand the application of fluid mechanics in mechanical engineering professional practice.
