This laboratory looks at the principles of fluid mechanics and hydraulics through laboratory experiments. Experiments cover fluid properties, hydrostatics and pressure measurement, velocity and flow measurement, orifices, venturi meters and weirs in addition to flow in open channels and pumps.
The primary objectives of this laboratory are as followed:
- To investigate a group of fluid mechanics principles studies in the fluid mechanics course.
- To learn how the main parameters and properties used in fluid mechanics can be measured.
- To practice on the laboratory devices.
- To connect theory with practice.
