On completion of this module, students should be able to:(1) describe the characteristics of a fluid and explain what different fluid properties mean; (2) distinguish between the properties of different fluids; (3) apply hydrostatic and force balance relationships to solve problems in stationary fluids; (4) differentiate between laminar and different types of turbulent flow; (5) classify flows in terms of how parameters vary with time and distance; (6) formulate the conservation laws of fluid flow; (7) analyse closed conduit and open channel hydraulic systems to apply these laws and determine parameter values for steady uniform flow situations; (8) demonstrate that you understand the role of friction in open channel and closed conduit hydraulic systems; (9) calculate energy losses in closed conduits; (10) design a closed conduit hydraulic system to convey a specified flow at a given pressure; (11) plan and conduct experiments, analyse and interpret the results and write up your findings in a coherent and logical manner.
