CE3213 FLUID MECHANICS AND MACHINERY LT P C
(Common for Manufacturing, Mechanical, Mining 3 1 0 4
and Industrial Engineering)
AIM:
The student is introduced to the mechanics of fluids through a thorough understanding of the
properties of the fluids. The dynamics of fluids is introduced through the control volume approach
which gives an integrated under standing of the transport of mass, momentum and energy.
OBJECTIVES:
 The applications of the conservation laws to flow though pipes and hydraulics machines are
studied
 To understand the importance of dimensional analysis.
 To understand the importance of various types of flow in pumps and turbines.

compressibility, vapor pressure and gas laws – Capillarity and surface tension – Flow
characteristics: Concepts of system and control volume. Application of control volume to continuity
equation, momentum equation and moment of momentum equation.
UNIT II FLOW THROUGH CIRCULAR CONDUITS 9 + 3
Laminar flow through circular conduits and circular annuli. Boundary layer concepts. Boundary layer
