FE Exam Fluid Mechanics - Internal Flow:

In the following segments, we review and solve practice problems for the internal flow topic of the Fluid Mechanics FE Exam. Specifically, we cover

- Reynolds Number, Laminar and Turbulent Flow

- Extended Bernoulli's equation and head loss;

- Velocity Distribution in a pipe/between parallel plates

- Head Loss due to Flow, Major Losses, Darcy Friction Factor, Manning Friction factor, Moody's Chart/Diagram

- Minor Losses in Pipe Fittings, Contractions and Expansions

- Pressure Drop for a Laminar Flow in a Pipe

- Flow in Non-Circular Conduits and Ducts, Hydraulic Diameter, Hydraulic Radius

- Multipath Pipeline Problems

- Hazen Williams Equation, Pipe Partially Filled

- Manning's Equation, Open Channel Flow

These topics are tested on FE Mechanical, FE Chemical, FE Environmental, and FE Other Disciplines.

We often refer to the reference manual, which is freely available after creating an account with the NCEES.
