    Description

    Fluid mechanics, the branch of science that deals with the study of fluids (liquids and gases) in a state of rest or motion is an important subject of Civil, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering.

    Fluid mechanics deals with three aspects of the fluid: static, kinematics, and dynamics aspects:

    1) Fluid statics: The fluid which is in state of rest is called as static fluid and its study is called as fluid statics.

    2) Fluid kinematics: The fluid which is in state of motion is called as moving fluid. The study of moving fluid without considering the effect of external pressures is called as fluid kinematics.

    3) Fluid dynamics: The branch of science which studies the effect of all pressures including the external pressures on the moving fluid is called as fluid dynamics.

    Common Applications of Fluids :

    1) Hydroelectric Power Plants
    2) Hydraulic machines
    3) Automobiles
    4) Refrigerators and Air Conditioners
    5) Thermal Power Plants
    6) Nuclear power plants
