Course Number: SEM-M-3052

Length of Course: 3 hours – Several topics can be combined to provide up to an 8 hour seminar session

Seminar Location: This seminar is available for on-site training


In Practical Fluid Mechanics, you’ll learn …

Topics

  • Key principles of fluid mechanics
  • Shear stress in a fluid
  • Conservation of mass
  • Conservation of momentum

Overview

Need to refresh your knowledge in solving practical fluid mechanics problems? For a given pump power, what kind of flow rate can be expected? For a system of pipes and valves, what kind of flow rate will result? Need to figure out a way to improve the efficiency of a system? Where do unnecessary pressure drops occur? What are the head losses?

In this seminar we will review and discuss various methods for answering these questions using real-life examples and solutions. The methods presented can be applied to the practice of many engineers, designers, analysts, experimentalists, and managers interested in solving fluid problems using classical methods.
