To be confirmed

1. Welcome

This is the second course in Fluid Mechanics, and in it we will be looking at refining and extending your understanding

of the subject.

2. Introduction

Instill more advanced concepts of fluid mechanics of incompressible Newtonian fluids, by building on foundations laid

in Fluid Mechanics II. Become familiar with industrial plant and equipment involved in such operations, enabling

learners to become functional in the market place.

3. Outline

The course is presented in the form of lecture/tutorial periods, augmented by laboratory practical sessions. The

lecture/tutorial periods are also used to discuss queries relevant to the sections being covered. The purpose of

practicals is to gain insight into practical fluid mechanics applications in the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory.

4. Assessment

Two test marks and the practical mark are necessary to obtain a Class Mark. If both Test 1 and Test 2 were written, the

make-up-test is not written:

Class Mark (%) = 0.4 x Test 1 mark (%) + 0.4 x Test 2 mark (%) + 0.2 x prac mark (%)

The tutorials consist of a question done at the end of section, to be handed in and marked in class.

The Class Mark must be 40% or greater to permit the learner to write the final examination.

Final Mark (%) = 0.4 x Class Mark (%) + 0.6 x Examination Mark (%)

To pass, a minimum Final Mark of 50% must be achieved, but with a minimum Examination Mark of 40%.

To be able to write the supplementary examination subject, a minimum Final Mark of 45% must be achieved.

The test dates are:

Test 1 Wednesday 20 August

Test 2 Wednesday 1 October

Makeup Wednesday 8 October

Fluid Mech 3

Sem 2 2014

The following book is the prescribed textbook:

.

MEYER C., 1995, Applications of Fluid Mechanics. CFM Pubs. (621.2 MEY)

This will be handed out to students during the first week.

The following list of books may be used as reference material and for supplementary reading:

DOUGLAS, 1986, Solving Problems in Fluid Mechanics Vol 1 & 2 Longman (620.106 DOU)

SAYERS, 1992, Fluid Mechanics an Intro Oxford University Press (620.106 SAY)

The library also contains various other references, dealing with fluid mechanics topics.

The course has a website go to http://dutmoodle.dut.ac.za/moodle and follow the links to Mechanical Engineering.

This website will be updated regularly with information for the course, so please check it whenever possible.

5. Practicals

Students will be advised at the beginning of the semester as to when they will be conducting the practicals. Due to the

nature of the course, the relevant sections of theory may not have been covered in class at the time of attending a

practical. The onus is on learners to read the practical manual for the practical, which will be handed out at the

beginning of the semester, in order to gain understanding of the practical. A copy of the raw data for the practical must

be handed in to the laboratory technician before leaving the practical session. The practical laboratory is located at S5,

Level 01, Steve Biko Campus.

Practical Report

After completion of a practical, a laboratory report must be prepared. This involves performing necessary calculations,

spreadsheet presentations and graph plotting where necessary. The lab report must include raw data, specimen

calculations for one set of readings, interpretations, conclusions and recommendations. The reports shall be handed

in no later than 7 days after the practical has been performed unless otherwise notified. The report must be

submitted electronically to fluidmech3dut@gmail.com . A hard (paper) copy is only required when asked for. The

email subject line must be in the following format:

Group No; Practical; Date performed

And the body of the email should include the names and student numbers of the group members. The document

should be in Microsoft Word format, either .doc or .docx format. The filename must be in the form of GroupNoPractical-DatePerformed.doc (e.g. Group4-Bernoulli-4April.doc). Emailed reports not in this format will not be

accepted. You will be required to sign a declaration form saying that the work is all original.

Students handing in reports whose calculations do not tie up with the readings taken on the day will be given a mark

of 0% for that report. Groups may be called upon to do a short oral presentation on their laboratory report, detailing

the procedures, results and conclusions.

Group Work

During the semester, the learner will be required to work in groups with designated partners, in practicals and tutorials.

The essence is for group members to work together, and not to divide the work between each other. For group work,

learners will be required to fill in a form detailing the work done, and evaluate the work done by others in the group.

Note that evaluations deemed as suspect will be dealt with. If a learner is given poor grades by fellow group members

more than twice, that learner may be fired from the group after consulting with the lecturer. Similarly, if one team

member feels that he is doing all the work in a group, that learner can quit the group after consulting with the lecturer.

Individuals who are fired or quit must then find a group willing to take them, provided group size doesnt become

excessive.

Tests 1 and 2 and the practicals are conducted on designated dates. Any excuse or absence from these must be

endorsed by an accredited person, explaining the circumstances for such an absence, including dates, times etc. If due

to illness, the medical certificate must be signed and stamped by a qualified medical practitioner. Non-compliance of

this results in no mark being entered into the register for that test. By noon, on the day of return to lectures, the

statement must be submitted to the lecturer. If later than that, it will not be accepted, resulting in no mark being

entered into the register for that test. The lecturer will contact the people involved to verify its authenticity and

admissibility. On the basis of this, a decision will be made to reject or accept the excuse. If rejected, no mark will be

entered into the register for that test. If accepted, the learner will be permitted to write a make-up test, or reschedule

their practical. No excuse is accepted for absence from the make-up test. Make up practicals will be conducted at the

end of the semester.

7. DP Requirements

For the course, an attendance rate of 75 % of lectures is required. Class registers will be taken every lecture. Also, for

the quizzes, a learner needs to attend at least 75 % of them. The Class Mark must be 40% or greater to permit the

learner to write the final examination.

8. Written Tests and Examination

Two tests, a make-up-test and the final examination are written on prescribed dates. Tests 1 and 2 have duration of 1.5

hours. Students granted a make up test due to absences will perform a make up test (duration: 2 hours) shortly after

Test 2 and it shall be based on work covered since the beginning of the course, up to that stage.

The Final Examination (duration: 3 hours) is based on work covered over the whole of the course. Test and examination

rules are available to learners registered for subjects offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering. The

following items serve as a summary of such rules:

The learner must be present at the test venue at least 5 minutes before a test and at the examination venue at

least 15 minutes before the examination.

No learner will be permitted to leave the examination venue during the first 30 minutes or the last 15

minutes of the examination.

For the examination, a seating plan will be displayed at the entrance to the examination venue, and

learners must seat themselves at their allocated desks.

Scripts, graph paper, etc., and the question paper will be provided by the invigilators.

For tests, bags are permitted in the venue and must be placed under the learners desk and cell phones contained

therein must be disabled.

Once in the test or examination venue, communication between learners is not permitted (talking, written

or gestures). Questions should only be directed to invigilators.

The test attendance register must be correctly completed with the learner's name and registration number.

Learners must ensure that their surname, initials and registration number appears on the cover of the answer

sheets/booklets. Multiple choice response cards must also be correctly completed, according to the instructions

given.

At the end of the examination or tests, learners must stop writing immediately when instructed to do so by the

invigilators.

Learners may not leave their seat, without the consent of an invigilator. Attention for requests to visit the toilet,

leave the exam venue, or query the question paper are made by the learner by raising one hand to attract the

attention of an invigilator.

9. Plagiarism

During this course, no plagiarism will be tolerated, and will be dealt with severely. Learners are expected to produce

their own work, in their own words. When using other authors material you will need to reference the work

properly, giving due credit and not simply copy the work. In the case of laboratory reports, the details of the practical

such as method need to be presented in the learners own words, to show that they understand the work. The details

on plagiarism are presented at orientation, and on the department notice board, and are found under G(13) in the

rulebook. No excuses will be tolerated, and any event of plagiarism will be brought to a Student Disciplinary tribunal.
