The field of fluid machinery is a significant area of application of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
Fluid energy machines are the most important group of machines. This field plays a fundamental role in the training of future engineers.
Knowing about the function, setup, properties, and operation of fluid machinery is an essential part of the technical training.
The field of machinery in general and the field of systems engineering in particular requires – in addition to general fluid mechanics –separate lectures and practical training on fluid machinery.
This is why the GUNT programme has dedicated an entire catalogue to this extensive subject.
The graph below illustrates the structure of the GUNT programme for product sector 4.
The field of general fluid mechanics is covered in catalogue 4. Catalogue 4b details the subject of hydraulic engineering and catalogue 4a deals with fluid machinery.
