This free online fluids mechanics course teaches basic theories and applications of fluid statics and fluid dynamics. The course will consist of around 50 tutorials which cover material typically found in an engineering fluids course at the university level.
In order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the subject, you should start at the top and work your way down the list. That way you will start learning the most basic concepts first and build off of those as you progress through the course.
