In this course, students investigate fluid mechanics and apply related principles to practical civil engineering problems. The primary topics covered in this course include fluid properties, the measurement of pressure, the forces due to static fluids, and the use of the general energy equation to analyze fluid flow in pipes and conduits accounting for energy losses due to friction. An introduction to the analysis of steady open channel flow is also presented.

Prerequisite(s): CIVL 11 + MATH 18
