Fluid Mechanics

Fluid mechanics is an engineering app for mechanical engineering students and professionals. The branch of science that deals with the study of fluids (liquids and gases) in a state of rest or motion is an important subject of Civil, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering.

The app covers full syllabus of mechanical engineering. There are complete chapters, topics and video tutorial with easy explanation which makes the content easy to understand.

There are some important topics in the app which are viscosity, Centrifugal Pump, properties of fluid, fluid mechanics, turbines, hydraulic turbines, fluid coupling, centrifugal pumps, pump installation and centrifugal pump.

Fluid mechanics deals with three aspects of the fluid: static, kinematics, and dynamics aspects:

1) Fluid statics: The fluid which is in state of rest is called as static fluid and its study is called as fluid statics.

2) Fluid kinematics: The fluid which is in state of motion is called as moving fluid. The study of moving fluid without considering the effect of external pressures is called as fluid kinematics.

3) Fluid dynamics: The branch of science which studies the effect of all pressures including the external pressures on the moving fluid is called as fluid dynamics.

Common Applications of Fluids :

1) Hydroelectric Power Plants
2) Hydraulic machines
3) Automobiles
4) Refrigerators and Air Conditioners
5) Thermal Power Plants
6) Nuclear power plants
7) Fluids as a Renewable Energy Source
8) Operating Various Instruments
