      Goals:
      1. Prepare individuals to apply advanced experimental research techniques to the study of complex fluid flows and phenomena through measuring and analyzing laboratory observations of basic fluid flows and phenomena.
      2. Improve writing skills through reports of the measurements and analyses.
      Objectives:
      1. Introduce the theoretical principles for and the instrumentation and methods of measurement and data storage/analysis for various physical quantities (e.g.,velocity, concentration, particles) and phenomena (e.g., diffusion, turbulence, boundary layer).
      2. Apply the instrumentation/methods to the measurement and data analysis of simple fluid flows and phenomena (e.g., velocity distribution and diffusion in wall bounded and free shear flows).
      3. Write short reports to present and explain the instrumentation and measurements. The purpose of this course is 1) to prepare you to apply advanced experimental research techniques to the study of complex fluid flows and 2) to give you a more intuitive, in-depth understanding of fluid dynamics behavior through hands-on laboratory experience.
