Summary
In this chapter some basic concepts of fluid mechanics are introduced
and discussed.
•A substance in the liquid or gas phase is referred to as a fluid. Fluid
mechanics is the science that deals with the behavior of fluids at rest
or in motion and the interaction of fluids with solids or other fluids at
thbdi
th
e
b
oun
d
ar
i
es.
•The flow of an unbounded fluid over a surface is external flow, and
the flow in a pipe or duct is internal flow if the fluid is completely
boundedbysolidsurfaces
bounded
by
solid
surfaces
.
•A fluid flow is classified as being compressible or incompressible,
depending on the density variation of the fluid during flow. The
densitiesofliquidsareessentiallyconstantandthustheflowof
densities
of
liquids
are
essentially
constant
,
and
thus
the
flow
of
liquids is typically incompressible.
•The term steady implies no change with time. The opposite of

is unstead

or transient.

•The term uniform implies no change with location over a specified
region.

as

,
which
leads
to the formation of boundary layers along solid surfaces.
•A system of fixed mass is called a closed system, and a system that
involves mass transfer across its boundaries is called an o

system or control volume. A large number of engineering problems
involve mass flow in and out of a system and are therefore modeled
as control volumes.
