Mark Peter Batho
Extension and application of fluid mechanics principles to hydraulic engineering problems. Open channel flow, pipeline systems, turbomachinery, unsteady flow in pipes, diffusion and mixing processes, groundwater, surface water hydrology. Prerequisite: CEE 342. Offered: WS.
This class will cover the topics listed in the Official description. Some will be covered in more detail than others. The primary focus is on pipe flow, pumps, turbines, and open channel flow.
There will be 3 labs. One will focus on pumps and the other will focus on open channel flow. Initially they may seem similar to the labs in CEE 342 but they concepts they focus on are quite different. The third lab is on Water hammer.
We will use the same textbook for this class as you are currently using in CEE 342. If you took Fluids at another university, the text you will need is as follows:
Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics (Hardcover), 5th Edition (2005) Bruce R. Munson, Donald F. Young, Theodore H. Okiishi

As a reference text, the Franzini Fluid Mechanics Text (2001) is also a good one.
