•
Mechanics:
The oldest physical science that deals
with both stationary and moving bodies under
the influence of forces.
•
Statics:
The branch of mechanics that deals with
bodies at rest.
•
Dynamics:
The branch that deals with bodies in
motion.
•
Fluid Mechanics:
The science that deals with the
behaviour of fluids at rest (
fluid statics
)or in
motion (
fluid dynamics
), and the interaction of
fluids with solids or other fluids at the boundaries.
Material
Solid state
Fluid state
Liquid
Gaseous
•
Solid
: The molecules in a solid are arranged in a pattern that is
repeated throughout.
•
Liquid
: In liquids molecules can rotate and translate freely.
•
Gas
: In the gas phase, the molecules are far apart from each other,
and molecular ordering is nonexistent.
The arrangement of atoms in different phases: (a) molecules are at
relatively fixed positions in a solid, (b) groups of molecules move
about each other in the liquid phase, and(c) individual molecules
move about at random in the gas phase.
What Is a Fluid?
•
Fluid: A substance in the liquid or gas phase. A solid can resist an
applied shear stress by deformation. A fluid deforms continuously
under the influence of a shear stress, no matter how small.
•
In solids, stress is proportional to strain, but in fluids, stress is
proportional to strain rate. When a constant shear force is applied,
a solid eventually stops deforming at some fixed strain angle,
whereas a fluid never stops deforming and approaches a constant
rate of strain.
•
Stress:
Force per unit area.
•
Normal stress
: The normal
component of a force acting
on a surface per unit area.
•
Shear stress:
The tangential
component of a force acting
on a surface per unit area.
•
Pressure:
The normal stress
in a fluid at rest.
•
Zero shear stress:
A fluid at
rest is at a state of zero shear
stress.
•
When the walls are removed
or a liquid container is tilted,
a shear develops as the liquid
moves to re

establish a
horizontal free surface.
The normal stress and shear stress at
the surface of a fluid element. For
fluids at rest, the shear stress is zero
and pressure is the only normal stress.
•
In a
liquid
, groups of molecules can move relative to each other, but
the volume remains relatively constant because of the strong
cohesive forces between the molecules. As a result, a liquid takes
the shape of the container it is in, and it forms a free surface in a
larger container in a gravitational field.
•
A
gas
expands until it encounters the walls of the container and fills
the entire available space. This is because the gas molecules are
widely spaced, and the cohesive forces between them are very
small. Unlike liquids, a gas in an open container cannot form a free
surface.
Unlike a liquid, a gas
does not form a
free surface, and it
expands to fill the
entire available space.

Flow Applications
•
Internal Flows:
Pipelines
•
External Flows:
Objects are completely surrounded by the fluid and the flows
are termed external flows.
Examples include the flow of air around airplane,
automobiles, and Flow around Propellers, or the flow of water
around submarines and fish
.
Internal vs. External Flow
•
Internal flows are
dominated by the
influence of viscosity
throughout the flow
field
•
For external flows,
viscous effects are
limited to the
boundary layer and
wake.
Why the study of External flow is
important
•
Design of cars and trucks to decrease the fuel
consumption and improve the handling
characteristics.
•
Improve ships, whether they are surface
vessels (surrounded by air and water) or
submersible vessels.
•
Design of building
–
consider the various wind
effects
•
The historical trend of streamlining automobiles to reduce
their aerodynamic drag and increase their miles per gallon.
Investigation Approaches
Two approaches are used to obtain information
of external flows:
•
Experimental approaches: Flow Properties
Measurements
•
Theoretical approaches: Solving of Governing
Equations
Analytical: purely theoretical methods is limited

limited.
Numerical: Computational Fluid Dynamics {CFD}

•
N.S.E
No

slip condition
•
A fluid in direct contact with a
solid ``sticks'‘ to the surface due
to viscous effects
•
Responsible for generation of
wall shear stress , surface drag
and the development of the
boundary layer
•
The fluid property responsible
for the no

slip condition is
viscosity
•
Important boundary condition
in formulating any problem for
analytical and computational
fluid dynamics analysis
