Why have a lecture in English?
(my own experience is…)
My own goal as professor (not TEC
´
s) is to inspire
my students to pursue a graduate degree abroad
(Canada, USA, Australia, maybe Europe)
I will be glad to help planning it!

have. Gandhi and

I recommend the version in English, but you are welcome
to buy the one in Spanish if you prefer.

If this experiment is conducted first with water and
then with oil the time required to empty the container
will be different: They have different
viscosities

A shaft turning inside a coaxial cylinder with a fluid in the
annular space (friction bearing)
Viscosity and the mechanism of momentum transfer
A fluid is a substance that deforms continuously when
subjected to a shear stress
mcargnel
28
If the annular cavity is small is acceptable to represent
the system in Cartesian coordinates
As time proceeds from an initial transient state, the steady
state is reached and a linear velocity profile is established.
A constant force is required to maintain the motion.
The force per unit area is proportional to the velocity decrease in
the ‘
y’
direction.
The coefficient of proportionality between the tangential stress
and the velocity gradient is called viscosity.

In Cartesian coordinates as drawn
The force per unit area (stress) is proportional to the
negative of the local velocity gradient.

Calculation of momentum flux (shear stress)
Compute the steady state momentum flux (
t
) when the lower plate
velocity is 0.3 m/s, the plate separation is 0.3 mm and the fluid
viscosity is 0.7

(

, 2006)
: Determining the viscosity
37
The viscosity of a liquid is to be measured by a
Couette
viscometer constructed of two 400

mm

long cylinders. The outer diameter of the inner
cylinder is 120 mm and the gap between the two
cylinders is 1.5 mm.
The inner cylinder is rotated at 300 rpm, and the
torque (T) is measure to be 1.80 Nm. Determine
the viscosity of the fluid

cm x 20

cm flat plate is pulled at 1m/s horizontally through a
3.6

mm

thick oil layer sandwiched between two plates, one stationary
and the other moving at a constant velocity of 0.30 m/s.

The dynamic viscosity of oil is 0.027

each oil layer to vary linearly. (a) find the location where the oil velocity
is zero and (b) determine the force that needs to be applied on the plate
to maintain the motion.
