Applications.
 Dimensional analysis and physical similarity. Basis of
Dimensional Analysis. Buckingham Theorem. Dimensionless
parameters. Physical Interpretation. Similarity.
 Flow in ducts. Introduction. Losses in Pipes: empirical
equations, DarcyWeissbach, Friction factor. Dependence of
friction factor with roughness and Reynolds number. Equations for
the calculation of the friction factor. laminar and turbulent
solution. Colebrook equation  artificial and natural roughness.
Methods of Calculation of friction factor in turbulent regime:
iterations, approximate formulas and diagrams. The Moody diagram.
Local losses computation. Interference.
 Introduction to flow in open channels. Introduction and basic
concepts. Dimensional Analysis of the problem. Flow
classification. Uniform flow: Analysis and optimums
section. Nonuniform flow: Specific Energy, Critical Depth.
Hydraulic jump.Open channels flow meters.
 Lab sessions: during the semester there will be different lab sessions regarding: fluidstatics, conservation laws, ideal flow, intro to CFD or flow in ducts.
The teaching methodology will consist of three different types
of activities:
 Lectures delivered at the classroom. In these classes the
concepts previously commented will be introduced and explained by
the lecturer. In addition, exercises related to the matter studied
will be also solved. The methodology used will be that indicated
previously.
 Lab sessions: five lab sessions of two hours each will be
held, all of them at the fluid mechanics experimental lab. These
will consist of a theoretical introduction, followed by the
measurements acquisition by the students. The students will
subsequently analyze the results and compare them with the
theoretical concepts studied to write an individual final report of
each session. The methodology used will be that indicated
previously.
 The collective mentoring sessions will consist of seminars
related to the subject. The methodology used will be that stated
above.
Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support
A minimum mark is needed to pass the exam.
The attendance to the practical sessions is mandatory. If a
student has not attended all the laboratory practice sessions, he /
she will not allowed to attend the exam and, therefore, will not be
graded.
By means of the above assessements, the competences CC2 and
CT4 will be evaluated, as well as the corresponding results.
