This course consists fundamental of fluid mechanics and fluid power system. Fundamental of fluid mechanics including properties of fluid, fluid in static and fluid in motion. Fluid power system including fluid power principles, devices, materials, hydraulic and pneumatic systems with emphasis on pumps, compressors, motors, and actuators.
By the end of semester, students should be able to:
CO1: Use the fundamental of fluid mechanics and fluid power including properties of fluid, fluid flow, hydraulics system and pneumatics system to solve problems in both of these fields.
CO2: Apply the Bernoulli's equation and energy equation to solve problems in fluid mechanics.
CO3: Sketch and construct basic pneumatic and hydraulic circuits, as well as construct own experimental techniques in order to understand the fundamental concept of fluid mechanics.
CO4: Demonstrate theoretical and experimental data in spoken presentation and written lab report.
