The Fluid Mechanics course builds on the knowledge gained in the subject of Chemical Engineering I and allows students to get more theoretical and practical knowledge about the properties of fluids, the balance of forces in fluids at rest, on movement of fluids in the force fields and principles of hydraulic machinery. The course is focused on engineering point of view and the practical problems of fluid mechanics are solved within the seminars.
Aim of the course -
