General description This syllabus presents information about the Fluid mechanics course during the 2nd year of the degree in Mechanical Engineering, 2019-2020, in accordance to the guidelines by the European Space of Upper Education.

This is a first course in fluid mechanics, focusing on the topics that are relevant to Mechanical Engineering applications.
The course is intended to acquire essential knowledge needed to analyze devices with fluid as a working material, such us hydraulic machinery, lubrication devices, heating and cooling systems, pipes systems, pneumatic systems, aero and hydrodynamics devices, windturbines, etc.
It includes stress and strain rate descriptions, fluid statics, use of differential and finite control volume analysis with continuity, momentum, and energy equations, Bernoulli and Euler equations, incompressible viscous flow using Navier-Stokes equations, dimensional analysis, laminar and turbulent pipe flow.
