Fluid Mechanics Quiz Screencasts

Each screencast has at least one interactive quiz during the video. The description above each video provides a brief summary.

Description: Uses a force balance along a streamline to derive the Bernoulli equation.

Description: Demonstrates how to use the Blasius solution to solve for different parameters in boundary layer flow.

Description: Shows how the simplified Navier-Stokes equation for two-dimensional laminar flow can be transformed to a solution that can be solved using numerical analysis.

Description: Detailed definition of 'fluid' and describes how to characterize fluids.

Description: A differential element of a static fluid is analyzed and the relationship between pressure and height is determined.

Description: Newton's second law in a differential form is used to determine the basic equation for a pressure field.

Description: Integrate the equation of motion in the z-direction and use boundary conditions to find the velocity distribution.

Description: Determines the force from a brace acting on a rotating gate that levels a water reservoir on the other side.


Description: Derives the equations to calculates the resultant force on a gate that is completely submerged gate in water and derives equations to determine the location of the resultant force.

Description: Derives relationship between fluid height and pressure based on equations of motion for fluid at rest.

Description: Derives the equations for relating pressure to fluid height for incompressible and compressible fluids.

Description: Use the Bernoulli equation to solve for the velocity of steadily flowing air exiting a nozzle.



Description: Shows how to take a simplified version of the Navier-Stokes equation, and using boundary conditions, produces a velocity profile.


Description: Introduces the concept of buoyancy and gives several examples.
