# Fluid Mechanics Lectures and Courses

Fluid mechanics can be real trouble if you don’t know your basics well. Here are some Lectures That can help you understand fluid mechanics in-depth.

The courses can be used for Undergraduate as well as postgraduate students.

## 1. Walter Lewin

Walter Lewin’s MIT physics lectures are amazing. All the concepts are clearly explained. The practical demonstrations in the lectures are really going to make you fall in love with Physics. Below are three videos from 8.01x that will cover the relevant Thermodynamics concepts.

## 2. MIT Fluid Mechanics

Here is a complete course on Fluid mechanics by MIT. You watch these lectures if you are into engineering and this is your subject.

## 3. Yale Physics

Yale Physics is one of the most high-level physics courses for Physics beginners. The content of this course is really good. The professor covers all the relevant topics that are required and he will cover a lot more interesting topics that will broaden your mind.

Here is a lecture on Fluid mechanics from that course-

## 4. Intro to Fluid Mechanics, UCI

This is a complete Fluid mechanics course by UCI. If you are interested in this or it is a part of your curriculum in engineering then you should do it.

## 5. SBCCPhysics

SBCC Physics is another college-level physics course that you can do to understand physics. The special thing about this one is that it is detailed, more like tuition than a lecture series. You will learn many things including problem-solving tricks

Here are two videos for Fluid mechanics –

## 6. Fluid Mechanics by Prof. S.K. Som, Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kharagpur

Here is a detailed Fluid Mechanics course for Engineering students. NPTEL courses are one of the most detailed and in-depth courses in the world. You can do this if it is a part of your curriculum.

## Online Courses for Fluid Mechanics

Fluid power has the highest power density of all conventional power-transmission technologies. Learn the benefits and limitations of fluid power, how to analyze fluid power components and circuits, and how to design and simulate fluid power circuits for applications.

In this course, you will be introduced to the fundamental principles and analytical modeling of fluid power components, circuits, and systems. You will learn the benefits and limitations of fluid power compared with other power transmission technologies; the operation, use, and symbols of common hydraulic components; how to formulate and analyze models of hydraulic components and circuits; and how to design and predict the performance of fluid power circuits. This course is supported by the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power and is endorsed by the National Fluid Power Association, the leading industry trade group in fluid power.

This course is devoted to selected problems of classical (theoretical) and fluid mechanics which usually remains outside the standard course of mechanics. Despite the fact that the course is aimed at students with an understanding of the methods and approaches of classical and fluid mechanics, several lectures of the course are devoted to the revision of material from the course of classical (theoretical) mechanics.

The course is aimed at an audience interested in theoretical physics methods for solving problems of classical and fluid mechanics. The course is designed for an audience that has previously attended a general courses of classical and fluid mechanics and courses of higher mathematics: mathematical analysis and differential equations theory.

This course will brief you about the basics of fluid mechanics. We start with various definitions it’s explanations. Then into different concepts like viscosity, surface tension, capillarity, thermodynamic properties of fluids. We are explaining each concept by taking a daily life example. Then we formulate the mathematical expression for the same to measure the magnitude of each property

This is Advanced Fluid Mechanics which is a continuation of the Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics course. It includes:

Differential relations for fluid particles, fluid acceleration, Continuity equation, Potential flows, and Navier-Stokes equation are introduced. Dimensional analysis and similarity, the principle of dimensional homogeneity Pi theorem, non-dimensionalization of basic equations, modeling, and its pitfalls. Flow in ducts and boundary layer flows. Pressure drop calculations. Minor losses in fittings. Energy equation applied to pumps and turbines. Flow over immersed bodies. Drag and Lift Calculations. Matlab codes for potential flows are also supplied.
