What is a Fluid?

FLUIDS

Incompressible Compressible
•Density changes only slightly with •Changes in density are significant
moderate changes in temperature
and pressure
What is Fluid Mechanics?
 The branch of engineering science that has to do with the
behavior of fluids is called Fluid Mechanics.

Fluid Mechanics

## •It treats fluids in the •It treats fluids when

equilibrium state of no portions of the fluid are
shear stress in motion relative to
other parts
Open Channel Flow
Closed Channel Flow
Why fluid flow is of interest for
Chemical Engineers?

 Selection of suitable machinery & power requirement
(pressure drops)

##  Selection of type of measurement devices

 Heat and mass transfer calculations
 Estimate the drag forces when fluids move past immersed
bodies
 Power calculations for mixing and agitation
