This course is intended to serve as an introduction to fluid statics, hydrodynamics and hydraulic machines for attendees with little or no fluids background. This course transitions from hydraulics concepts to laws, mathematical equations, sample problems and practical hydraulics case study examples. Manning’s Law, Bernoulli’s Law, Moody’s Graph, Darcy’s Equation, Fan Laws, and Hazen Williams Method – to name a few – are some of the principles and analytical principles that are discussed covered. 

Hydraulic machines, i.e., pumps and hydro-turbines are discussed; their operations and applications are explained and illustrated through numerical case studies. Hydraulic systems analyses are explained and illustrated through detailed case study. For those attendees or participants who possess prior fluids knowledge and experience, this course, is intended to serve as a refresher of the basics and an introduction to intermediate level knowledge on the subject of hydrostatics, hydrodynamics and hydraulic machines. The audience is engaged through Q&A, classwork, and ad hoc discussions pertaining to the topic.

The Topics to be covered in this course are as follows:
1. Hydrostatics concepts and analysis.
2. Hydrodynamics principles, laws and analytical techniques.
3. Application of Bernoulli, Darcy, Hazen-Williams, Manning, Water Horsepower, and other hydrodynamics equations. 
4. Study of hydraulic machines commonly applied in industrial and commercial environment.
5. Review of “wire to water “and “water to wire” power flow and efficiency 
6. Mathematical analysis involving matching of system head requirements with available pump curves.
