About this Item

This Second Edition contains 18 experiments in Fluid Mechanics, selected from the prescribed curriculum of various universities and institutes. The laboratory work in Fluid Mechanics is undertaken by the undergraduate engineering students of several branches such as civil, mechanical, production, aerospace, chemical, biotechnology, electrical (wherever prescribed), and instrumentation and control (wherever prescribed). The first part of the book allows the students to review the fundamental theory before stepping into the laboratory environment. The second part enumerates the experimental set-ups, and provides a concluding discussion of each experiment. Appendix A gives various questions based on each experiment to test the student?s understanding of the learned material. Appendix B gives data on physical properties of water, air and some commonly used fluids in the laboratory, and also lists other standard data to be used in various experiments. Contents Preface PART I: THEORY OF FLUID MECHANICS Fluid Mechanics: An Introduction PART II: EXPERIMENTS Experiment 1. Flow Through a Variable Duct Area?Bernoulli?s Experiment Experiment 2.

About this title


Thirty experiments have been selected from the syllabi of courses on basic fluid mechanics and advanced fluid mechanics. The first fifteen experiments are designed to be performed by the students of several branches of engineering who study fluid mechanics as a common course (civil, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and control, and chemical engineering). The remaining fifteen experiments are meant to be performed by the students of civil engineering and mechanical engineering who study another advanced course on fluid mechanics. The book is divided into two parts. Part i allows the students to review the fundamental theory before stepping into laboratory environment. Part ii provides the step-wise details of experiments which include objective, brief theory of the experiment, experimental set-up, procedure, observations and calculations, graphs to be plotted, and a concluding discussion of the experiment. Appendix a gives several questions based on each experiment to test the student s understanding of the learned material. Appendix b gives data on physical properties of water, air, and some commonly used fluids in the laboratory, and also lists other related standard values to be used in the various experiments.
