Course Description:
Pressurized Flow Hydraulics - 4EUS3HEC Goals In the first part, the course presents practical approaches of the fluid mechanics conservation equations. It introduces some methods to treat pipes networks problems and trains students to solve industrial problems related to hydraulic machineries. The second part of the course presents the theory of the transient hydraulic regimes. It sensitizes students to the problems of hydraulic instabilities and related issues. Contact Regiane FORTES PATELLA Content Application of integral relations (conservation of mass, momentum, and moment of momentum, generalised Bernoulli) to concrete examples Basic knowledge of calculations for pipe networks Basic knowledge of hydraulic machines: operation and inner workings Analysis of transient conduit flow: pressure fluctuations and water hammer Prerequisites Continuum mechanics: basic knowledge Fluid mechanics (course 1A from the 1st semester): Integral relations, hydrostatics, head loss Basic knowledge on the compressibility of fluids Basic knowledge of wave propagation Elasticity: pressurized thin wall tubes Tests ABOUT US STUDIES RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES STUDENT LIFE Number of hours Lectures : 26.0 Tutorials : 16.0 Laboratory works : 18.0 ECTS : 5.0 Page 1 Semester 3 - The exam may be taken in french or in english DS : un DS commun de 3h regroupant la totalité des notions vues lors des différents enseignements du module CC : CR TP ; CR BE ; préparation, synthèse écrite et présentation orale des cas d'étude traités. final assessment : (2xDS+TP+BE)/4 TP : salle GreEn-ER avec ventilateur, coup de bélier BE en salle informatique Additional Information Course list Curriculum->Engineer ME->Semester 3 Curriculum->Engineer HOE->Semester 3 Bibliography Mécanique expérimentale des fluides, R.
