Course Synopsis
This course is an introduction to industrial fluid mechanics. According to J. C. R. Hunt (a
famous fluid mechanics specialist): “industrial fluid mechanics broadly covers those
aspects of the design, manufacture, and operation of industrial products that are related to
fluid-flow problems; the subject includes the related fluid-mechanics research and its
application, as well as the technology associated with fluid flow.” In general, such flows
are too complex to analyze exactly.
Why study Industrial Fluid Mechanics?
By studying typical industrial problems, you will develop the skills needed to perform a
good analysis and diagnosis on the types of engineering and research problems which may
be faced during your professional career, and devise ways to solve them.

Learning Objectives
By the end of the course it is expected that students will be able to:
- Extend what you have learned to more complicated “industrial” systems
- Obtain exposure to a broader range of fluid mechanical problems
- Provide ability to extend to other problems
Textbook
Lecture notes will be provided on the course website. Informational sources could be
found via the following textbook:
Fluid Mechanics – Fundamentals and Applications, Yunus Cengel and John Cimbala
Problem sets
After each major topic (7), an assignment based on a problem set will be distributed.
Term Project
Each student will be required to carry out an independent project. For this project you
will make contact with a local company (e.g. Ballard, Scott Paper, Lafarge, etc.) and ask
an engineer at the company to describe some industrial fluid mechanics problem they
face or faced (e.g. designing a new piping network, monitoring flow conditions
somewhere, etc.). Then, in a formal technical report you will document both options the
company considered and any additional options that you think they should have
considered, for addressing this problem. This report must be quite specific, and include
appropriate engineering calculations and drawings and appendices with instrumentation
specifications.
