Module Level Level 2
Module Credits 5.00
Academic Year 2021/22
Semester SEM1

Aims and Fit of Module

To introduce the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and to lay a solid foundation for subsequent work involving mechanical and mechatronic engineering.

Learning outcomes

Students completing the module successfully should be able to:
A. Apply methods from the theory of vector fields to the study of fluid flows.
B. Use mathematical techniques to analyse and solve basic engineering problems in fluid mechanics.
C. Recognise and analyse different types of flows appearing in robotic and mechatronic systems.
D. Demonstrate independent learning, problem solving and design skills.

Method of teaching and learning

This module will be delivered through a combination of formal lectures, and tutorials. An In-Class test will be provided in Week 5 and a continuous assessment will be provided in Week 10.
