Objectives

At the end of this course the student should be able to

  • To know the physical properties of the fluids.
  • To know the types of fluids (Newtonian, non Newtonian, Ideal), as well the types of the flow (laminar, turbulent, steady, unsteady, rotational, irrotational, etc).
  • To be able to study the equilibrium of fluids.
  • To be able to study the movement of fluids.
  • To be able to study the dynamic of fluids.
  • To be able to apply the kinematics equations of fluids for the solution of the flow problems.
  • To be able to apply the dimensional analysis and similarity for the study of the flow fields.
  • To be able to define the physical problem, the mathematical problem and to select the suitable method for the solution, and after that to valuate and interpret the results.
  • To be able to apply the basic laws of Fluid Mechanics to biomechanics.
