CE 1161 FLUID AND SOLID MECHANICS 3 1 0 100

OBJECTIVE
At the end of this course the student is expected to have a knowledge of the concepts of Forces, Equilibrium, Stress, Strain, Shear force, Bending moment and torsion and should be able to apply these concepts to simple problems in beams and shafts. Further, he /she is also expected to gain knowledge of the fundamentals of fluid flow and their applications to flow through pipes and hydraulic machines. He / She should be able to solve application problems in these
areas.

2. SHAFTS AND SPRINGS 8
Torsion – Shear stresses in circular solid and hollow shafts - Torque and power – Helical and leaf springs – Load, deflection, stress and stiffness relationships.

3. FLUID PROPERTY AND FLOW CHARACTERISTICS 9
Surface tension – Capillarity – Viscosity – Newton’s law – Fluid pressure and pressure head - Fluid velocity – Uniform and steady flow – Reynolds number - Classification as laminar and turbulent flow – Continuity equation.

4. FLOW DYNAMICS AND MEASUREMENT IN PIPE NETWORKS 9
Euler’s and Bernoulli’s Equations – Manometer, Venturi meter and orifice meter - Pressure losses along the flow – Categorisation into minor losses - Flow through circular pipes – Statement of Darcy – Weisbach equation – Friction factor – Pipes in series and parallel - Hydraulic gradient.
