#### 6. Specific goals for the course

a. The student will be able to…

• solve applied math problems involving linear ordinary differential equations with boundary conditions;
• solve partial differential equations that can be analytically solved with boundary condition;
• identify how coordinate systems are used with ODEs and PDEs;
• simplify second order PDEs with assumptions;
• identify when an analytical solution to a PDE is possible and when numerical methods are required;
• identify the properties of fluids;
• calculate problems that involve pressure measurements;
• solve fluid statics problems using the basic equation of fluid statics;
• apply principles of fluid kinematics to differentiation among vector fields;
• describe physical phenomena of fluid flow;
• define and explain viscosity, density, and specific gravity;
• calculate surface forces on static fluids;
• differentiate between Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids;
• identify laminar flow and turbulent flow;
• calculate the Reynold’s number and it in fluid flow problems;
• apply the Bernoulli equation to sets of fluid problems;
• solve energy balances in the context of fluids and fluid motion;
• distinguish between approximations of and appropriate models for Bernoulli’s Equation (i.e friction losses, pumps, compressors, turbines, surface forces, gas-liquid flow, non-Newtonian fluids, and the Moody diagram);
• apply momentum balances using the governing equations of momentum to solve one dimensional velocity profile problems of external or internal viscous fluid flow;
• interpret the different approximations of the momentum balance;
• classify differential vs. integral forms of momentum analysis;
• calculate problems using the Navier Stoke’s Equations.identify different turbo- and fluid-machinery;
• explain why computational fluid dynamics is important;
• solve problems using external flow with applications: boundary layers, lift, drag; and
• calculate problems with dimensional analysis methods.
