# GATE 2021 Class Notes  Mechanical Engineering FLUID MECHANICS,PDF

In this blog, I will be telling all the Mechanical branch students how to prepare fluid mechanics(F.M) subject for GATE/IES. As all the mechanical branch aspirants will be aware that fluid mechanics(F.M) is one of the most important subject for mechanical branch. It is one of the core subjects and the concepts should be clear to prepare for other subjects as well.

So, now question comes that how do you prepare it? What books to use? Which notes to be used? Which topic is most important ? I will be answering all these.

## From last year GATE papers :-

 YEAR 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 Fluid mechanics 10 8 11 10 9 13 5

The above table shows the marks distribution for GATE/IES paper. It can be seen that the range of marks for this subject varies from 5 to 13 average being 9.4 which is 9.4 % of total marks. Obviously, the marks distribution also shows, it is one of the most important subject who’s question are mostly easy and you can score 100% in  fluid mechanics.

## Books required for FLUID MECHANICS  preparation:-

1. A Textbook of Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines by R.K. Bansal.

2.Fluid Mechanics (SIE) -  by Frank White.

3.Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics   -by P. N. Modi.

Notes – by author [ME]  HAND WRITTEN MATERIALS

## Topics :-

1.Fluid properties; fluid statics, forces on submerged bodies, stability of floating     bodies

2.Control volume analysis of mass, momentum and energy

3.Fluid acceleration

4.Differential equations of continuity and momentum

5.Bernoulli’s equation

6.Dimensional analysis

7.Viscous flow of incompressible fluids, boundary layer,

8.Elementary turbulent flow, flow through pipes, head losses in pipes, bends and fittings

9.Basics of compressible fluid flow.

The all topic is important and you must solve more numericals in these topics.
