- International Fees
International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.
An introduction to the terminology, physics and applications of hydrostatics and hydraulics, this course covers fluids at rest and in motion. Topics include the properties of water, fluid pressure, hydrostatic force and buoyancy, head loss and the application of Bernoulli’s equation to hydraulic systems. Students will use energy conservation methods to solve pipe systems with multiple branches.
