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.
