Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines Detailed Syllabus for B.Tech second year second sem is covered here. This gives the details about credits, number of hours and other details along with reference books for the course.

The detailed syllabus for Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines B.Tech 2016-2017 (R16)  second year second sem is as follows.

B.Tech. II Year II Sem.     L/T/P/C
Course Code: ME403ES  BS 4/1/0/4
Pre-requisite: Nil

UNIT-I Fluid statics:
Dimensions and units: physical properties of fluids- specific gravity, viscosity, surface tension – vapour pressure and their influence on fluid motion- atmospheric, gauge and vacuum pressures – measurement of pressure- Piezometer, U-tube and differential manometers.

UNIT-II Fluid kinematics:
Stream line, path line and streak lines and stream tube, classification of flows-steady & unsteady, uniform & non uniform, laminar & turbulent, rotational & irrotational flows-equation of continuity for one dimensional flow and three dimensional flows. Fluid dynamics: Surface and body forces –Euler’s and Bernoulli’s equations for flow along a stream line, momentum equation and its application on force on pipe bend.

UNIT-III Boundary Layer Concepts:
Definition, thicknesses, characteristics along thin plate, laminar and turbulent boundary layers (No derivation) boundary layer in transition, separation of boundary layer, submerged objects – drag and lift. Closed conduit flow: Reynold’s experiment- Darcy Weisbach equation – Minor losses in pipes- pipes in series and pipes in parallel – total energy line-hydraulic gradient line. Measurement of flow: pitot tube, venture meter, and orifice meter, Flow nozzle
