## Description

This course considers the fundamental concept of fluid mechanics with an introduction to the fundamental conservation equations (in integral and differential forms). The course objective is to give the students the necessary theoretical understanding to analyse and solve complex engineering problems in fluid systems. Applications to a variety of topics are provided including fluid statics, experimental similitude, pipe systems, and turbo machinery.

## Learning Outcomes
