3. Recommended: An engineering fluid mechanics textbook. These are well-
respected reference books:
o Fluid Mechanics with Engineering Applications, Tenth edition, E.J.
Finnemore. and J. B. Franzini, 2002, McGraw-Hill, ISBN 978-
0072432022 (an excellent reference with an emphasis on civil
engineering applications)

Course Description:

Fundamentals of fluid behavior with an emphasis on water. Covers basic fluid

properties, flow classification, and fluid statics including forces on submerged
surfaces. Introduces and applies fundamental relationships: conservations of mass,
momentum, and energy. Hydraulic applications include flow in pipes and pipe
netwroks, steady flow in open channels, and hydraulic machinery. Co-requisite:
CENG 141L.

Course Goals:
One of the goals for this class is to foster the skills needed to be self taught learners.
Not all of the information that you need to know will be presented in lecture. I will
presume that you are acquiring some through your own reading and study. In addition,
you will be encouraged to refine your professional style of solving problems and
presenting solutions in excellent written form. Part of the homework will be dedicated
to solving problems in a clear and complete professional style.
