5. 5. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.1 Fluid Concept • Fluid mechanics is a division in applied mechanics related to the behaviour of liquid or gas which is either in rest or in motion. • The study related to a fluid in rest or stationary is referred to fluid static, otherwise it is referred to as fluid dynamic. • Fluid can be defined as a substance which can deform continuously when being subjected to shear stress at any magnitude. In other words, it can flow continuously as a result of shearing action. This includes any liquid or gas. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 5
6. 6. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.1 Fluid Concept • Thus, with exception to solids, any other matters can be categorised as fluid. In microscopic point of view, this concept corresponds to loose or very loose bonding between molecules of liquid or gas, respectively. • Examples of typical fluid used in engineering applications are water, oil and air. • An analogy of how to understand different bonding in solids and fluids is depicted in Fig. 1.1 Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 6

Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 8
9. 9. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.1 Fluid Concept  In fluid, the molecules can move freely but are constrained through a traction force called cohesion. This force is interchangeable from one molecule to another.  For gases, it is very weak which enables the gas to disintegrate and move away from its container.  For liquids, it is stronger which is sufficient enough to hold the molecule together and can withstand high compression, which is suitable for application as hydraulic fluid such as oil. On the surface, the cohesion forms a resultant force directed into the liquid region and the combination of cohesion forces between adjacent molecules from a tensioned membrane known as free surface. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 9
10. 10. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.2 Units and Dimensions • The primary quantities which are also referred to as basic dimensions, such as L for length, T for time, M for mass and Q for temperature. • This dimension system is known as the MLT system where it can be used to provide qualitative description for secondary quantities, or derived dimensions, such as area (L), velocity (LT-1) and density (ML-3). • In some countries, the FLT system is also used, where the quantity F stands for force. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 10
11. 11. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.2 Units and Dimensions • An example is a kinematic equation for the velocity V of a uniformly accelerated body, V = V0 + at where V0 is the initial velocity, a the acceleration and t the time interval. In terms for dimensions of the equation, we can expand that LT-1 = LT -1 + LT-2 • T Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 11
12. 12. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Example 1.1  The free vibration of a particle can be simulated by the following differential equation: du m + kx = 0 dt where m is mass, u is velocity, t is time and x is displacement. Determine the dimension for the stiffness variable k. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 12
13. 13. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Example 1.1  By making the dimension of the first term equal to the second term: [m] • [u] = [k]•[x] [t] Hence, [m]•[u] [k] = = [t]•[x] M • LT-1 LT = MT-2 Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 13
14. 14. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.3 Fluid Continuum • Since the fluid flows continuously, any method and technique developed to analyse flow problems should take into consideration the continuity of the fluid. There are two types of approaches that can be used: 1.Eulerian approach — analysis is performed by defining a control volume to represent fluid domain which allows the fluid to flow across the volume. This approach is more appropriate to be used in fluid mechanics. 2.Lagrangian approach — analysis is performed by tracking down all motion parameters and deformation of a domain as it moves. This approach is more suitable and widely used for particle and solid mechanics. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 14
15. 15. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.3 Fluid Continuum  The fluid behaviour in which its properties are continuous field variables, either scalar or vector, throughout the control volume is known as continuum. From this concept, several fluid or flow definitions can be made as follows:  Steady state flow — A flow is said to be in steady state if its properties is only a function of position (x,y,z) but not time t: ρ = ρ (x,y,z), V = V (x,y,z) An example is the velocity of a steady flow of a river where the upstream and downstream velocities are different but their values does not change through time. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 15
16. 16. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.3 Fluid Continuum • Uniform flow — A flow is said to be uniform if its velocity and all velocity components is only a function of time t: V = V (t) An example is the air flow in a constant diameter duct where the velocity is constant throughout the length of the duct but can be increased uniformly by increasing the power of the fan. • Isotropic fluid — A fluid is said to be isotropic if its density is not a function of position (x,y,z) but may vary with time t: ρ = ρ (t) An example is the density of a gas in a closed container where the container is heated. The density is constant inside the container but gradually increases with time as the temperature increases. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 16
17. 17. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.4 Flow Patterns • The three ways to represent fluid flow: 1. Streamlines — A streamline is formed by tangents of the velocity field of the flow. 2. Pathlines — A pathline can be formed from fluid particles of different colour originated from the same points, such as a line formed after the introduction of ink into a shallow water flow. 3. Streaklines — A streakline represents a locus made by a miniature particles or tracers that passes at a same point. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 17
18. 18. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.5 Density Density of a fluid, ρ, Definition: mass per unit volume,  slightly affected by changes in temperature and pressure. ρ = mass/volume = m/∀ Units: kg/m3 Typical values: Water = 1000 kg/m3; Air = 1.23 kg/m3 Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 18
19. 19. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.6 Viscosity • Viscosity, µ, is a measure of resistance to fluid flow as a result of intermolecular cohesion. In other words, viscosity can be seen as internal friction to fluid motion which can then lead to energy loss. • Different fluids deform at different rates under the same shear stress. The ease with which a fluid pours is an indication of its viscosity. Fluid with a high viscosity such as syrup deforms more slowly than fluid with a low viscosity such as water. The viscosity is also known as dynamic viscosity.  Units: N.s/m2 or kg/m/s  Typical values: Water = 1.14x10-3 kg/m/s; Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah Air = 1.78x10-5 kg/m/s 19
20. 20. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluid Fluid obey Newton’s law of viscosity refer Newton’s’ law of viscosity is given by; du τ=µ dy (1.1) τ = shear stress µ = viscosity of fluid du/dy = shear rate, rate of strain or velocity gradient Newtonian fluids Example: Air Water Oil Gasoline Alcohol Kerosene Benzene Glycerine • The viscosity µ is a function only of the condition of the fluid, particularly its temperature. • The magnitude of the velocity gradient (du/dy) has no effect on the magnitude of µ. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 20
21. 21. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluid Fluid Do not obey Newton’s law of viscosity Non- Newtonian fluids • The viscosity of the non-Newtonian fluid is dependent on the velocity gradient as well as the condition of the fluid. Newtonian Fluids  a linear relationship between shear stress and the velocity gradient (rate of shear),  the slope is constant  the viscosity is constant non-Newtonian fluids  slope of the curves for non-Newtonian fluids varies Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 21
22. 22. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies If the gradient m is constant, the fluid is termed as Newtonian fluid. Otherwise, it is known as non-Newtonian fluid. Fig. 1.5 shows several Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 22
23. 23. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Kinematic viscosity, ν Definition: is the ratio of the viscosity to the density; ν = µ/ρ • will be found to be important in cases in which significant viscous and gravitational forces exist. Units: m2/s Typical values: Water = 1.14x10-6 m2/s; Air = 1.46x10-5 m2/s; In general, viscosity of liquids with temperature, whereas viscosity of gases with in temperature. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 23
24. 24. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Specific Weight Specific weight of a fluid, γ • Definition: weight of the fluid per unit volume • Arising from the existence of a gravitational force • The relationship γ and g can be found using the following: Since therefore ρ = m/∀ γ = ρg (1.3) Units: N/m3 Typical values: Water = 9814 N/m3; Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah Air = 12.07 N/m3 24
25. 25. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Specific Gravity The specific gravity (or relative density) can be defined in two ways: Definition 1: A ratio of the density of a liquid to the density of water at standard temperature and pressure (STP) (20°C, 1 atm), or Definition 2: A ratio of the specific weight of a liquid to the specific weight of water at standard temperature and pressure (STP) (20°C, 1 atm), SG = ρ liquid ρ water @ STP = γ liquid γ water @ STP Unit: dimensionless. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 25
26. 26. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies Example 1.2 A reservoir of oil has a mass of 825 kg. The reservoir has a volume of 0.917 m3. Compute the density, specific weight, and specific gravity of the oil. Solution: ρ oil mass m 825 = = = = 900kg / m 3 volume ∀ 0.917 γ oil weight mg = = = ρg = 900 x 9.81 = 8829 N / m 3 volume ∀ SGoil ρ 900 oil = = =0.9 ρ @ STP 998 w Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 26
27. 27. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.7 Surface Tension • Surface tension coefficient s can be defined as the intensity of intermolecular traction per unit length along the free surface of a fluid, and its SI unit is N/m. • The surface tension effect is caused by unbalanced cohesion forces at fluid surfaces which produce a downward resultant force which can physically seen as a membrane. • The coefficient is inversely proportional to temperature and is also dependent on the type of the solid interface. • For example, a drop of water on a glass surface will have a different coefficient from the similar amount of water on a wood surface. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 27
28. 28. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.7 Surface Tension • The effect may be becoming significant for small fluid system such as liquid level in a capillary, as depicted in Fig. 1.6, where it will decide whether the interaction form by the fluid and the solid surface is wetted or non-wetted. • If the adhesion of fluid molecules to the adjacent solid surface is stronger than the intermolecular cohesion, the fluid is said to wet on the surface. Otherwise, it is a non-wetted interaction. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 28
29. 29. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.7 Surface Tension  The pressure inside a drop of fluid can be calculated using a free-body diagram of a spherical shape of radius R cut in half, as shown in Fig. 1.7, and the force developed around the edge of the cut sphere is 2πRσ.  This force must be balance with the difference between the internal pressure pi and the external pressure pe acting on the circular area of the cut. Thus, 2πRσ = ∆pπR2 2σ ∆p = pi –pe = R Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 29
30. 30. Faculty of Engineering and Technical Studies 1.8 Vapour Pressure • Vapour pressure is the partial pressure produced by fluid vapour in an open or a closed container, which reaches its saturated condition or the transfer of fluid molecules is at equilibrium along its free surface. • In a closed container, the vapour pressure is solely dependent on temperature. In a saturated condition, any further reduction in temperature or atmospheric pressure below its dew point will lead to the formation of water droplets. • On the other hand, boiling occurs when the absolute fluid pressure is reduced until it is lower than the vapour pressure of the fluid at that temperature. • For a network of pipes, the pressure at a point can be lower than the vapour pressure, for example, at the suction section of a pump. Otherwise, vapour bubbles will start to form and this phenomenon is termed as cavitation. Subject Matter Expert/Author: Assoc Prof Dr Shahrir Abdullah 30
