Zeal to learn the subject


Understanding fundamental principles of fluid is required in various field of engineering.

Course Outcome

After learning the course the students should be able to

  1. To know about the basic fundamentals of fluid mechanics and respective properties of the fluid
  2. To understand pressure head
  3. To understand the behavior of the fluid under static condition
  4. To know about the basic fundamentals for governing equations of fluid mechanics and engineering
  5. To understand the importance and application of dimensional analysis
  6. To understand and differentiate the ideal fluid flow and real fluid flow
  7. To understand the basic of turbulent and compressible flow

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
