  • Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
Semesters
Semester 1 Credit Value: 10
ECTS Credits: 5.0

Aims

The aim of the module is to provide understanding of and ability in the application of fluid mechanics in Civil Engineering.

The module topics include: the engineering applications of hydraulics, resistance to flow, velocity profile development, drag of immersed bodies, pipeline design, development of fraction equations, pipe network analysis and design, performance characteristics of hydraulic machines, steady flow in open channels, uniform flow resistance formulae, application of resistance equations, design of rigid boundary channels, design of erodible channels, energy principles, and momentum function applied to hydraulic jumps and forces on structures.

Outline Of Syllabus

Engineering Applications of Hydraulics. Resistance to flow ( Boundary layers: laminar and turbulent; Velocity profile development; Drag of immersed bodies, drag coefficients). Pipeline design (Flow in pressure pipelines; Development of fraction equations; Design of pipelines; Pipe network analysis and design).
