Learning outcomes:
Students will receive an overview of fluid mechanics. After successfully completing this course, students will be familiar with the basic hydraulic elements and will be able to combine them into simple hydraulic circuits. In addition, they will be familiar with the basic effects of steady flows and will be able to make rough calculations.
