...Fluid Mechanics Learning Objectives Outcomes • Explain the pressure-depth relationship. Pressure increases with depth. • Define Pascal’s Principle. Pascal's Principle states that the pressure is transmitted evenly through a liquid. • Describe how to use Pascal’s Principle in practical application. When you inflate a balloon with air, it expands evenly in all directions, this is an example. • Describe Archimedes Principle. States that the mass of a liquid displaced by a floating body is equal to the mass of that body. • Determine if an object will float in a fluid based on its relative densities. So if you fill a tumbler up with water to the brim, put an object into it, weigh the water that has been pushed out of the tumbler, and compare that with the weight of the object, you'll know whether it floats or not. • Use the continuity equation and Bernoulli’s equation to explain common effects of ideal fluid flow. The pressure in a fluid moving steadily without friction or outside energy input decreases when the fluid velocity increases Assignment Requirements 3. Mass is the same, so if the whale is taking up less volume, the density must have increased. The whale has displaced a greater mass of water at the depth, so the buoyant force is greater. 20. Ice cubes float in water, and sink in alcohol. Anything with less density than the liquid that it's in will float. 22. It will increase 35. It would be harder on the top of a mountain because the pressure of the......

...Variation of Pressure vertically in a fluid under gravity P_2 A P_1 Force due to P_1 on area A acting up = P_1 A Force due P_2 on area A acting down = P_2 A Force due to the weight of the element =mg= ρA(z_2- z_1 )g Since the fluid is at rest, there can be no shear forces and hence no vertical forces on the side of element due to surrounding fluid. Considering upward as positive, sum of all forces = 0, We have P_1 A-P_2 A - ρA(z_2- z_1 )g=0 Or P_2- P_1= - ρ(z_2- z_1 )g So, under the influence of gravity , pressure decreases with the increase height. Equality of Pressure at the same level in a static fluid Since the fluid is at rest, there are no horizontal shear stresses on the sides of the element. For static equilibrium the sum of horizontal forces must be zero, P_1 A=P_2 A P_1=P_2 Therefore the pressure at any two points at the same level in a body of fluid at rest will be the same If the (x,y) is the horizontal plane then ∂p/∂x=0 and ∂p/∂y=0 Variation of pressure due to gravity from point to point in a static fluid Since the element is in equilibrium, the resultant of the forces in any direction should be zero Resolving forces in the axial direction, pA-(p+δp)A-ρgAδs cos⁡θ=0 δp=-ρgδs cos⁡θ Putting above equation in differential form, dp/ds=-ρgcos......

Fluid Dynamics

...FLUID DYNAMICS In physics, fluid dynamics is a subdiscipline of fluid mechanics that deals with fluid flow—the natural science of fluids (liquids and gases) in motion. Fluid dynamics is "the branch of applied science that is concerned with the movement of liquids and gases," according to the American Heritage Dictionary. Fluid dynamics is one of two branches of fluid mechanics, which is the study of fluids and how forces affect them. (The other branch is fluid statics, which deals with fluids at rest.)  Scientists across several fields study fluid dynamics. Fluid dynamics provides methods for studying the evolution of stars, ocean currents, weather patterns, plate tectonics and even blood circulation. Some important technological applications of fluid dynamics include rocket engines, wind turbines, oil pipelines and air conditioning systems. FLOW The movement of liquids and gases is generally referred to as "flow," a concept that describes how fluids behave and how they interact with their surrounding environment — for example, water moving through a channel or pipe, or over a surface. Flow can be either steady or unsteady. In his lecture notes, "Lectures in Elementary Fluid Dynamics" (University of Kentucky, 2009) J. M. McDonough, a professor of engineering at the University of Kentucky, writes, "If all properties of a flow are independent of time, then the flow is steady; otherwise, it is unsteady." That is, steady flows do not change over time. An example......

...shall begin by studying incompressible flow problems. Of course all fluids are, to some extent, compressible but under steady flow conditions we may assume that the effects of changes in fluid density are small. In fact, it is the velocity of the fluid that dictates whether changes in density are significant and must be accounted for. In Chapter 6 we shall quantify the velocity limit, below which may assume that the fluid is incompressible; however, the majority of fluid flow problems that you are likely to encounter may be assumed to be incompressible. We shall focus in this chapter on incompressible flow, and on problems in which the fluid is bounded by a surface (we shall call this internal flow); the next chapter will focus on unbounded (or external) fluid flow problems. Both chapters will study real fluid flows and do this by taking into account the effects of viscosity. To do this we must examine how fluids interact with boundaries and here the concept of zero fluid velocity on a surface (boundary) is important. Once we have an understanding of how real fluid flows behave – and see how difficult it is to analyses turbulent flows –then in Chapters 4 and 5 we shall turn our attention to modelling techniques useful for examining simple fluid flow problems commonly found in engineering. Accordingly, this chapter will look at laminar and turbulent bounded fluid flows. We shall focus on pipe flow as this represents a classic......

Fluid Mechanics

...Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics Fluid mechanics is the study of fluids and the forces on them. (Fluids include liquids, gases, and plasmas.) Fluid mechanics can be divided into fluid kinematics, the study of fluid motion, and fluid dynamics, the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion, which can further be divided into fluid statics, the study of fluids at rest, and fluid kinetics, the study of fluids in motion. Fluid mechanics is very important to engineers when observing flow in pipes, viscous effects of fluids, and the forces that act on a fluid. As a student, I am suppose to demonstrate an adequate understanding of many properties involved fluid mechanics. Some learning outcomes that must be accomplished by taking this class are: * Demonstrate understanding of fluid mechanics fundamentals, fluid and flow properties such as compressibility, viscosity, buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure and forces on surfaces * Apply Bernoulli equation to solve problems in fluid mechanics * Solve fluid mechanics problem using control volume analysis using conservation of mass, energy equation and irreversible flow * Use differential analysis of fluid flow, potential flow theory, viscous flow, Navier Stokes equations to solve problems * Perform modeling and similitude using Buckingham Pi theorem, correlation of experimental data. * Analyze flow in pipes to determine laminar and turbulent flow behaviors. * Apply energy and momentum equations to......

...the earth is roughly 7000˚C. The two reasons why the earth is hot is when the earth was formed, the interior was heated rapidly due to the gravitational forces being converted into heat and radioactive isotopes within the earth liberate heat as they continue to decay. Our ability to drill into the earth is restricted to the upper few kilometers of the earth’s crust. We must look for a location where the earth’s interior heat is brought within our reach. This is most common at plate boundaries. Direct heating systems are designed to supply hot water only with no electricity generation. Borehole drilled to depth of 1800 meters beneath the city of Southampton, UK. Near the bottom of the hole is water at 70˚C. The fluid contains dissolved salts. The fluid is more accurately described as Brine. The Brine is pressurized and so rises unaided to within 100 m of the surface. A turbine pumps the Brine up to the surface through a heat exchanger that transfers heat to clean water.
