# CE6451 Fluid Mechanics and Machinery

## What is Fluid Mechanics?

First, what is a fluid?
Three common states of matter are solid, liquid, and gas.
A fluid is either a liquid or a gas.
Fluid:
A fluid is a substance which is capable of flowing. A fluid
may be classified in to Liquid, gas and Vapour.

## Next, what is mechanics?

Mechanics is essentially the application of the laws of
force and motion. Conventionally, it is divided into two
branches, statics and dynamics.

Fluid Mechanics:
It deals with the behavior of fluid under the condition of
rest and motion. It may be divided in to three parts: Statics,
Kinematics and dynamics.

## UNIT I FLUID PROPERTIES AND FLOW CHARACTERISTICS

Units and dimensions Properties of fluids mass density, specific weight, specific
volume, specific gravity, viscosity, compressibility, vapor pressure, surface tension
and capillarity. Flow characteristics concept of control volume application of
continuity equation, energy equation and momentum equation.

Density:
Mass density or specific mass:
The density of a fluid is defined as its mass per unit volume at
standard temperature and pressure.

## Mass of the fluid

Volume of the fluid
=m/v
unit , kg/m3
For water, = 1000 kg/m3

## Specific Weight or weight density: w

It is defined as Weight per unit volume at
standard temperature and pressure

Specific Gravity : S
It is the ratio of the specific weight of the liquid to the
specific weight of the standard fluid.

Weight Density of Liquid= S X Weight density of water
= S X 1000 X 9.81 N/m3
Density of Liquid= S X density of water= S X 1000 kg/m3

Ideal Fluid:
A fluid, which is incompressible and is having no viscosity, is known as Ideal
fluid. It is only imaginary Fluid
Real Fluid:
A fluid, which is having viscosity, is known as Real fluid. All fluids are Real
fluids.
Newtonian fluids:
These fluids follow Newtons viscosity equation. For such fluids does not
change with rate of deformation. Exp. Water, Kerosene etc.,
Non Newtonian fluids:
There fluids which do not follow the linear relationship between the shear
stress and the rate of deformation. Exp. Polymer solutions, Blood et.,

Compressibility:
When a fluid is subjected to a pressure increase the
volume of the fluid decreases. It is known as compressibility. It
is reciprocal of bulk modulus.
Compressibility = 1/k

Bulk modulus:
It is define as the ratio of compressive stress to volumetric
strain.

## Surface Tension of Liquids

The phenomenon of surface tension arises due to the two
kinds of intermolecular forces. Surface Tension is caused by
the force of cohesion at the free surface.

## (i) Cohesion : The force of attraction between the molecules of

the same liquid. Surface tension is due to cohesion between
particles at the free surface.
(ii) Adhesion : The force of attraction between unlike molecules
of a solid boundary surface in contact with the liquid

Capillarity:
Capillarity is a phenomenon by which a liquid rises into a thin
glass tube above or below its general level. surface relative to the
adjacent level of the fluid is called capillarity.
This phenomenon is due to the combined effect of cohesion and

Vapour pressure:
All liquids have a tendency to evaporate when exposed to a
gaseous atmosphere. The vapour molecules exert a partial
pressure in the space above the liquid, known as vapour pressure.

GasLaws:

At a given temperature for a given quantity of gas, the product
of the pressure and the volume is a constant.
