To understand the basic concepts of fluid mechanics for undergraduate students in Civil
Engineering. The course will begin with the fundamental concepts of fluid flow and proceed to
cover various flow phenomena and approaches to analyse the flow phenomena. Some important
applications shall also be covered.


Fundamental Fluid Properties: Engineering units of measurement, mass, density, specific
weight, specific volume, specific gravity, surface tension, capillarity, viscosity, bulk modulus of
elasticity, pressure and vapour pressure. Fluid Statics: Pressure at a point, pressure variation in
static fluid, Absolute and gauge pressure, manometers, Forces on plane and curved surfaces
(Problems on Gravity Dams and Tainter Gates), buoyant force, stability of floating and
submerged bodies, relative equilibrium.

Kinematics and Dynamics of Flow: Introduction to basic lines - Streamlines, Streaklines,
Pathlines. Various types of fluid flow. Velocity potential function, Stream function, Vorticity and
Circulation, Flow net. Basic equations of fluid flow like Energy equation, continuity equation and
momentum equation. Bernoulli’s equation and its applications.

Laminar Flow and Turbulent Flow: Introduction to laminar & turbulent flow, Reynolds
experiment & Reynolds number. Velocity distribution, Laminar and turbulent boundary layers
and laminar sublayer, boundary layer concept, aging of pipes. Losses due to sudden expansion
and contraction, losses in pipe fittings andvalves, concepts of equivalent length, hydraulic and
energy gradient lines, siphon, pipes in series, pipes in parallel, branching of pipes. Concept of
Water Hammer transmission of power.

Open channels: Channel geometry and elements of channel section, velocity distribution, energy
in open channel flow, specific energy, types of flow, critical flow and its computations, uniform
flow and its computations, Chezy’s and Manning’s formulae, determination of normal depth and
velocity, Normal and critical slopes, Economical sections. Basic assumptions and dynamic
equations of gradually varied flow, characteristics analysis and computations of flow profiles,
rapidly varied flow hydraulic jump in rectangular channels and its basic characteristics, surges in
open channels & channel flow routing.

Forces on immersed bodies: Types of drag, drag on a sphere, a flat plate, a cylinder and
anaerofoil development of lift, lifting vanes, Magnus effect.
Fluid Machines: Turbines: Classifications, definitions, similarity laws, specific speed and unit
quantities, Pelton-wheel turbine-their construction and settings, speed regulation, dimensions of
various elements, Action of jet, torque, power and efficiency for ideal case, characteristic curves.
Reaction turbines: construction & setting, draft tube theory, runaway speed, simple theory of
design and characteristic curves, cavitation.
