Hydromechanics - course description

Course name: Hydromechanics

ECTS: 3

Language of instruction: Polish/English

Teaching methods/load: Laboratories (30h / semester)

Teacher responsible: Dr Anna Szajewska

 

Prerequisites

Student has basic knowledge in mathematics and phisics (fluid mechanics and hydromechanics in particular) that is essential to understand practical problems connected with processes occuring during the flow of water in hydraulic installations (fire protection devices in particular).

 

Description of learning outcomes

The primary didactic aim is for the students to aquire the ability to solve theoretical and practical problems connected with fluid characteristics at rest and in motion and connected with tactical firefighting systems

 

Content:

  • Organizational classes. Learning the laboratory rules, the stands, OSH regulations, division into groups. Giving general information about pressure units and error analysis.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on determining air output in axis-symmetrical air flow.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on setting linear and local loss in smooth lines, using piezometric tubes.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on setting characteristics of rotodynamic pumps connected serially or parallelly.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on investigating hydraulic impact in rigid copper lines.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on investigating rotodynamic pumps characteristics and setting pump efficiency curve.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on to setting pressure loss in fire hoses.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on investigating the process of creating negative pressure in vacuum system, using a vacuum pump.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on investigating a circular supply water system model.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on investigating simulations of tactical extinguishing systems.
  • Performing a laboratory exercise on investigating liquid jets characteristics used in fire protection.
