Basic concepts of Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics course with all fundamentals including properties of liquid, pascal's law, fluid kinematics, equation of continuity, Bernoulli's equation and viscous flows. Below is complete outline of the subject as taught in mechanical engineering undergraduate course. It is compulsory for all mechanical engineers to revise basics of hydraulics and fluid mechanics and other courses to stay updated with knowledge of the subjects and for a better performance during interviews. It has been learnt that many interviewers like to ask basic questions from fluid mechanics during interview. Once you have gone through all the short topics given below, you will be in a position to answer all interview questions related to hydraulics/ fluid mechanics.
