Paper Description
This course covers the basic principles of fluid mechanics. Topics include fluid statics, fluid dynamics, Bernoulli and energy equations, momentum analysis of flow structures, flow measurement, dimensional analysis, internal flow in pipes and ducts, external flow over streamlined and bluffed bodies, pump sizing and selection, and an introduction to open channel flow.
Paper Structure
The paper content is delivered through a combination of online minilectures, facetoface lecture/tutorial combinations (called 'Lectorial'), facetoface laboratories and workshops, and facetoface tutorial (additional for students who are struggling).
Please note that the 'lectorials' start in the first week of the trimester, laboratories, and special help tutorial start in the second week , the Bottle Rocket challenge workshops start in the fourth week. All of these activities are an essential part of the learning for this paper.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Assessment
The learning outcomes are assessed using a combination of:
Assignments (20%)
Five assignments form an important part of the learning of the paper. Assignment problems allow you to practice important concepts, and therefore help cement your knowledge as well as prepare for the tests and exam. There will be a total of five assignments over the semester which will be released via Moodle. Do not copy from a class mate. Where copying is detected both scripts will get ZERO for the assignment. Do your own work.
Laboratories (15%)
There are a total of four laboratory worksheets to complete plus one practice report and one formal report that will be marked.
Test 1 (15%)  2 hour
There will be an open book facetoface test after 5 weeks. The test is worth 15% of your final grade. The date is shown below. The format will be discussed in class prior to the test. If you are taking the paper remotely then you will have the option to apply to take the test remotely. Please notify the convener that you will be taking the paper online.
Bottle Rocket Challenge (20%)
From the 3 Aug (week 4) to the 21 Sept (week 9) each laboratory group will design and build a bottle rocket and launch pad that is powered by a maximum air pressure of 60 psi and a maximum water volume of 1 litre. The rocket that travels the furtherest horizontal distance will be the winner (10%). Each student is to submit a set of photographs and calculations that model the flight of the rocket (10%).
Test 2 (30%)  3 hour
The final Test, held during Examination weeks, will cover the whole semester’s lecture material. It will be a open book facetoface test. Programmable calculators, not containing stored information, are allowed.
The format of the final Test will be discussed in lectures during the last week of the course.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 100:0. There is no final exam.

Online Support
This paper has a Moodle page (http://elearn.waikato.ac.nz) where you will be able to access lecture notes, lecture recordings, and assessment materials. There are also discussion forums where you can both ask and answer questions.
PLEASE NOTE: Moodle will be used for class notices etc. and it is your responsibility to check the site regularly. Instructions provided on Moodle and in lectures are considered to be given to the class as a whole.
Workload
36 hr 'Lectorials', 8 hr of labs, 12 hr of workshop plus 94 hr for viewing mini lectures, assessment and independent study.
