This is an advanced course in Fluid Mechanics. The
subject Fluid Mechanics has a wide scope and is of prime importance
in several fields of engineering and science. Present course
emphasizes the fundamental underlying fluid mechanical principles
and application of those principles to solve real life problems.
Special attention is given towards deriving all the governing
equations starting from the fundamental principle. There is a well
balanced coverage of physical concepts, mathematical operations
along with examples and exercise problems of practical importance.
After completion of the course, the students will have a strong
fundamental understanding of the basic principles of Fluid Mechanics
and will be able to apply the basic principles to analyze fluid
mechanical systems.
