Unit Snapshot

Learning outcomes

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.
