The objective of this lab-based course is to illustrate the physical concepts of fluid flows and to introduce students to techniques for measuring fluid flow and pressure. The course reinforces the theory related to the properties of a fluid when at rest (static) and when in motion. Key topics include: flow through pressurized pipe networks, analysis of minor losses, water flow in open channels, measuring devices, pumps, and static fluid forces.
