MER 310 - Thermal-Fluid Systems I
(3 cr.) This course focuses on fluid mechanics while introducing and integrating corresponding topics of thermodynamics. Properties of fluids and hydrostatics as well as conservation principles for mass, energy and linear momentum are covered. Principles are applied to incompressible flow in pipes, external flows, Bernoulli's equation, dimensional analysis, Navier-Stokes, boundary layer development, lift and drag. Laboratory exercises are incorporated into classroom work. Prerequisite: MA 242 or MA 251; PHY 121; MA 365 or MA 265; Every Year, Fall
