Objectives of the Course
Fluid mechanics consists of basic principles on momentum transfer which are crucial in Food Engineering Unit Operations in general. In this course, fluids and flows systems are examined by the engineering approach. It is aimed that students learn the basic principles of fluid mechanics and make practice in real food systems by solving related problems.
