Course Overview

Bernoulli's equation is a special case of the general energy equation that is probably the most widely-used tool for solving fluid flow problems. It provides an easy way to relate the elevation head, velocity head, and pressure head of a fluid. It is possible to modify Bernoulli's equation in a manner that accounts for head losses and pump work.

This course discusses:

  • General energy equation
  • Simplified Bernoulli equation
  • Head
  • Energy conversions in fluid systems
  • Restrictions on the simplified Bernoulli equation
  • Extended Bernoulli equation
  • Application of Bernoulli's equation to a venturi
