This module formally introduces the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and classical equilibrium thermodynamics. It examines applications of single-constituent fluids and provides background for all applications in engineering. Fluid mechanics is one of the underpinning sciences in engineering. Most engineering processes involve fluid flow, including flow over aircraft, through combustion engines, chemical processing, manufacturing and cardiovascular flow. In this module, we work from first principles to describe the hydrostatic pressure variation, analyse moving flow using the mass conservation, energy conservation and momentum balance equations and look at energy exchange by work and heat transfer.
