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 lectures, facetoface laboratories, facetoface workshops, and facetoface tutorials.
Please note that the Lectures, Water Network Design Challenge Workshops, and Tutorials start in the FIRST week of the trimester, whereas the laboratories start in the SECOND week of the trimester. All of these activities are an essential part of the learning for this paper.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
The learning outcomes are assessed using a combination of:
Inclass Quizzes (5%)
There will be six biweekly quizzes starting Week 2 in the Thursday lecture. Only students attending the lecture will be able to sit the quiz. The best of five quizzes will be used toward your grade.
Laboratory Assignments (20%)
There will be five laboratory assignments worth 4% each.
Test (10%)  2 hour
There will be a 2 hour facetoface test in the PWC on Tuesday 7th September from 6 pm  8 pm. The format will be discussed in class prior to the test. You may bring a 'cheat sheet' (1 x A4 sheet of paper with notes written on both sides).
Water Network Design Challenge (15%)
Groups of approximately 4 students will design and model water distribution networks to meet a given specification. Each group member is required to develop either a metered or unmetered network (10%), and each team is required to submit a group report (5%).
Exam (50%)  3 hour
The final exam will cover the whole trimester's lecture material. It will be a closed book facetoface exam. Programmable calculators, not containing stored information, are allowed. A formula sheet will be provided. The format of the Exam will be discussed in the tutorials during the last week of the course. Students must get a minimum of 40% in the exam to pass the paper.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
