Fluid Mechanics is the course of applied Mechanics concerned with the static and dynamics of liquids and gases. A Fluid either in motion (Fluid Dynamics) or at rest (Fluid Statics) and the subsequent effects of the fluid upon the boundaries, which may be either solid surface or interfaces with other fluids are presented. The course can help undergraduate students to understand hydrostatics and fluid movement. This course are divided into twelve parts, they include:

(1) The Properties of Fluids

(2) Hydrostatics

(3) Element of Fluid Dynamics

(4) Similarity

(5) Losses of Energy in Pipe-lines and it’s Calculation

(6) Incompressible Plane Potential Flow

(7) Basic Theory of Boundary Layer

(8) Turbulent Jet

(9) Element of Gasdynamics

(10) Expansion waves and Shock Wave

(11) One-Dimensional Pipe-Flow

(12) Characteristic of Steady Two-Dimensional Supersonic Flow
