Tutorials start the week of Sept 10
is on Mondays at 9:30-11:20 AM in HSC-1A4
is on Thursdays at 9:30-11:20 AM in HSC-1A4
course is an introduction to the subject of fluid mechanics. It
includes the following topics: fundamental concepts, fluid
statics, conservation laws, incompressible inviscid flows,
Dimensional and similarity analysis, internal incompressible
viscid flows, introduction to boundary layers, and lift and
drag. While covering the basics and fundamentals of fluid
mechanics, the emphasis in this course will be on using those
basic principles to analyze various engineering systems.

You are expected to exhibit honesty and use ethical behaviour in
all aspects of the learning process. Academic credentials you
earn are rooted in principles of honesty and academic integrity.
Academic dishonesty is to knowingly act or fail to act in a way
that results or could result in unearned academic credit or
advantage. This behaviour can result in serious consequences,
e.g. the grade of zero on an assignment, loss of credit with a
notation on the transcript (notation reads: “Grade of F assigned
for academic dishonesty”), and/or suspension or expulsion from
It is your responsibility to understand what constitutes
academic dishonesty. For information on the various types of
academic dishonesty please refer to the
Academic Integrity Policy
following illustrates only three forms of academic dishonesty:
• Plagiarism, e.g. the submission of work that is not one’s own
or for which other credit has been obtained.
• Improper collaboration in group work.
• Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and
