Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulics Machine Laboratory

OBJECTIVES

-To learn how different types of equipment are needed to measure in different parameters of fluid flow.

-To learn different characteristics of fluid when flowing in different manners.

-To learn how different parameters of fluid flow are to be obtained and controlled.

-To learn how different characteristics of fluid flow are to be measured.

-To learn  how a database of fluid flow is to be made and suggestions for the improvement of the design of equipment to enhance the efficiency.
