The subject contains consideration of properties of liquids and gases, hydrostatic forces, pressure definition. The Fluid Dynamics course is based on motion equations of liquids and gases. Real flows described in terms of border layer equations and turbulence length. Non dimensional methods used for process modeling. Heat losses and flow types are analyzed. Methods of pipe, valve, pump and fan selection. Flow parameters described in nozzles, channels, around the body..
