Course Number: FLD-001
Course Field: Fluid Flow
PDH Credits: 3

Course Overview

Understanding the quantities measured by the volumetric flow rate and mass flow rate is crucial to understanding other fluid flow topics. The continuity equation expresses the relationship between mass flow rates at different points in a fluid system under steady-state flow conditions.

This course discusses:

  • Properties of fluids
  • Buoyancy
  • Compressibility
  • Relationship between depth and pressure
  • Pascal's law
  • Control volume
  • Volumetric flow rate
  • Mass flow rate
  • Conservation of mass
  • Steady-state flow
  • Continuity equation
