LABORATORY REPORT GUIDELINES
FLUID MECHANICS (CLB 11003)

Each experimental report should contain the following items in accordance to the numbering as listed:

1. COVER PAGE
Please insert the LABORATORY REPORT SUBMISSION FORM as the front cover.
DOWNLOAD FROM E LEARNING (VLE)

2. TABLE OF CONTENTS
The table of content and number of pages should be in following format.
Note: Each page should be numbered.

Content Page Number
1.0 Summary
2.0 Results
3.0 Analysis & Discussions
4.0 Conclusions & Recommendations
5.0 References
6.0 Tutorial
7.0 Appendices

3. SUMMARY
Give the summary (not more than half page) on the overall experimental report. Give brief
review on the objectives of the experiment, experimental procedures, main experimental
results and discussions which are deemed significant and finally conclusions obtained from
the work.

4. RESULTS
Record down and present each of the experimental data and findings in the table
provided.

the experimental
b. Suggest improvements in apparatus or measurement procedure, or even experimental
procedures for future work (if applicable).
c. Should be in one paragraph.
