Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
The following modules (or equivalents) should be preferably completed prior to, or in conjunction with, this module:
 EB720 Fluid Mechanics 2
 VBH 624 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 1
 VBH 625 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 2
The purpose of this module is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to apply Fluid Mechanics principles to a variety of real world engineering applications including simple flow networks and pump & turbine design. It further extends the knowledge obtained in Fluid Mechanics 1 & 2, and also facilitates articulation to Degree courses in Engineering (Mechanical/Manufacturing)
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
VBG878 Fluid Mechanics 3
On completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1. Solve problems involving viscous fluid flow through pipes and pipe networks.
2. Solve simple engineering problems involving Couette flow and Lubrication.
3. Use Dimensional Analysis techniques to model hydrodynamic systems and hence predict their flow behaviour.
4. Solve simple engineering problems involving Vortex flows.
5. Solve simple engineering problems involving the effects of External (open) flows on bodies of various shapes.
6. Analyse the performance of and specify design parameters for hydraulic machinery such as pumps and turbines.
Details of Learning Activities
Class room lecturing, problem solving with different data"s and parameters and Applying mathmatical steps. Students will be educated to thing and analyse the data available and find the solution. Refer the steam tables, entropy and enthalpy chart to analyse the steam characters
