Total Marks :- 150 Marks.

Fluid Flow Operations is a 60% Theory & 40% Numerical Subject, it’s slight hard to score well in this subject due to vast syllabus. This subject needs studying from the start itself, you can’t finish studying this subject during PL’s . It mostly includes the study of flow behaviour of fluids, various pumps, velocity equations etc.
