Fluid mechanics


Question Description

Course Project Assignment

you will be required to complete a course project. This project is focused on addressing the ABET outcome that graduates will have knowledge of contemporary issues.

Contemporary Issues in Fluid Mechanics

For this option, you will develop a 2-3 page overview or research summary of a contemporary issue in fluid mechanics. This could focus on a current research topic in fluids or a more applied topic, but either way, it must be a contemporary issue. Several examples would include: fluid mechanics in a microgravity environment, the skirts that we are nowseeing on many semi’s for drag reduction, the process of “fracking” when drilling for gas andoil, or even the guy skydiving that attempts to break the sound barrier. Look for any current research topic in fluid mechanics or a topic that industry is pursing in the area of fluids.

Your assignment will be submitted on an 8.5 x 11 page, single space, Times New Roman font, 12 pt, with 1” margins. If you include a graph, photo or image, you can go up to three pages. Three pages is the MAX. Make sure to list ALL references used to develop this summary. Note;I will be using the “Turn-It-In” software to check for plagiarism.

Fluid Mechanics
Most people tend to wonder whether there is a chance for one to fall fast and exceed the
speed that sound takes to reach its destination. It is imperative to understand that people who opt
to jump from out of space consider certain forces on the surface of the earth such as the
gravitational pull. Some of these forces or fluids influence how fast an object falls from above. In
the same, an individual that decides to fall from the sky or out of space has to consider the forces
that will act against him as well as those that will be in support of his or her motion. Felix
Baumgartner is one of the famous jumpers that proved an individual indeed could fall at a faster
speed than that of sound in 2012.
In contemporary society, scientists have made efforts to build objects that are capable of
working along the forces of gravity of the earth’s surface that could prevent a safe, free fall from
the sky or out of space. For instance, a person that plans to jump from up above needs to get to
space first before making the jump. The out space is known to lack atmosphere that could
support the life of a person. Thus, an individual will need the supply of oxygen gas to allow him
or her to remain alive as they plan to make the jump. Thus, measures have ...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
