A basic understanding of fluid mechanics through the study of the properties, stationary behavior, and flow characteristics of incompressible fluids. The fundamental constitutive relations and conservation equations governing the pressure, velocity, and free surface elevation of the fluid. Hydrostatic forces, pipe flow, and open channel flow as examples of hydraulic engineering. Prerequisites: CE-ENGIN 240 or M&I-ENG 210, MATH 331, and M&I-ENG 230.
