The course should enable the student to:
 Understand the basic laws and the principles that govern the behavior of fluids .
 Perceive the basic concept of ideal and real fluids.
 Realize the similarity between model and prototype.
 Model and analyze a common fluid engineering problems.
 Lay the ground for various courses related to fluid mechanics aspects.

Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to:
 Grasp the concepts of a fluid and basic flow analysis techniques.
 Deal with continuity and Bernoulli's equations in various fluid flow problems
 Treat fluid flow in pipe network with full consideration of pipe losses.
 Interpret the fluid pressure variation in stati's and dynamic situations.
 Estimate the fluid forces on surfaces and submerged bodies.
 Apply effectively energy and linear momentum equations in fluid flow.
 Distinguish between laminar and turbulent flow.
 Carry out fluid flow measurements< such as pressure, speed, flow rate and be familiarized with the relevant measuring devices, transducers and measurement techniques
 Perform experimental work including hydrostatic force on surfaces, flow of fluid through pipes and other topics related to the applications of fluid mechanics in mechanical engineering.
