About CEE 3600 A

Provides an understanding of the mechanics of incompressible fluids (fluid statics and fluid flow) with a focus on applications common in Civil Engineering such as flow meters, flow in closed conduits, and elements of hydraulic machinery (systems with pumps, cavitation, NPSH). Credit not for both CEE 3600 and CEE 3615. Prerequisites: MATH 2248; CEE 1100 with a grade of C- or better or CEE 1150 with C- or better. Co-requisite: CS 1210.


Open to CEMS & PACE students; Prereqs enforced by the system: MATH 2248 and a C- or better in CEE 1100 or 1150; Coreq: CS 1210

Section Description

The course aims to provide an understanding of the basic principles of fluid mechanics and applications to civil and environmental engineering problems. Students will be introduced to the mechanics of incompressible fluids – fluid statics and fluid flow, and develop the skills needed for the design and analysis of hydraulic structures in civil, and environmental engineering, including flow in closed conduits, open channels, and elements of hydraulic machinery.

Section Expectation

Students should expect to spend 8-10 hours a week on coursework outside of class, with additional time in class and lab recitations for the team projects. The syllabus, weekly homework assignments, the solutions, and example exams will also be provided online.
