The basic principles of fluid mechanics are introduced. A generalised approach to fluid statics is used as an introduction to calculating the forces exerted by fluids on surfaces. Fluid dynamics is approached using a control volume formulation and basic pipe flow is introduced. Potential flow is applied to calculate the velocity and pressure fields over basic shapes.
