1 Definition of Fluid • Fluid mechanics is a division in applied mechanics related to the behaviour of liquid or gas which is either in rest or in motion. • Fluid can be defined as a substance which can deform continuously when being subjected to shear stress at any magnitude. . it can flow continuously as a result of shearing action. • The study related to a fluid in rest or stationary is referred to fluid static. In other words. This includes any liquid or gas. otherwise it is referred to as fluid dynamic.1.

1 Definition of Fluid  A fluid is a substance. or flows. when subjected to shearing force  In fact if a shear stress is acting on a fluid it will flow and if a fluid is at rest there is no shear stress acting on it. Fluid Flow Shear stress – Yes Fluid Rest Shear stress – No . which deforms continuously.1.

In microscopic point of view. any other matters can be categorised as fluid. respectively. • Examples of typical fluid used in engineering applications are water. .1 Definition of Fluid • Thus.

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. the molecules can move freely but are constrained through a traction force called cohesion.1.  For liquids. .  For gases. it is very weak which enables the gas to disintegrate and move away from its container. This force is interchangeable from one molecule to another.1 Fluid Concept  In fluid. which is suitable for application as hydraulic fluid such as oil. it is stronger which is sufficient enough to hold the molecule together and can withstand high compression.

Liquids and Gases • For solid.1. imagine that the molecules can be fictitiously linked to each other with springs.1 Comparison Between Solids.1 Definition of Fluid Free surface k k k k (a) Solid (b) Liquid (c) Gas Figure 1. .

Adjacent particles have different velocities. the fluid particles are at rest relative to each other. no shear stress will be produced.Shear stress in moving fluid • If fluid is in motion. Shear force Moving plate Fluid particles New particle position Fixed surface . causing the shape of the fluid to become distorted • On the other hand. the velocity of the fluid is the same at every point. shear stress are developed if the particles of the fluid move relative to each other.

Completely fill the vessel so that no free surface is formed. it changes volume to expand to fill the containing vessels A free surface is formed if the volume of container is greater than the liquid.Differences between liquid and gases Liquid Gases Difficult to compress and often regarded as incompressible Easily to compress – changes of volume is large.

such as L for length. or derived dimensions. such as area (L). T for time. • This dimension system is known as the MLT system where it can be used to provide qualitative description for secondary quantities. the FLT system is also used.2 Units and Dimensions • The primary quantities which are also referred to as basic dimensions. • In some countries. velocity (LT-1) and density (ML-3). .

t is time and x is displacement. Determine the dimension for the stiffness variable k.Example  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. .

[m]•[u] [k] = [ t ] • [ x ] = M • LT-1 LT = MT-2 .Example  By making the dimension of the first term equal to the second term: [u] [m] • = [k]•[x] [t] Hence.

 Since this depends upon molecular activity. which is a function of temperature.  It reaches a stage of equilibrium when this pressure reaches saturated vapor pressure. for example if the pressure is reduced sufficiently boiling may occur at room temperature.  If the pressure above a liquid reaches the vapor pressure of the liquid. the vapor pressure of a fluid also depends on its temperature and increases with it.Vapor Pressure  A liquid in a closed container is subjected to a partial vapor pressure in the space above the liquid due to the escaping molecules from the surface. boiling occurs. .

very serious damage can result due to the very large force with which the liquid hits the surface.  If this should occur in contact with a solid surface.  Cavitations in a closed hydraulic system can be avoided by maintaining the pressure above the vapor pressure everywhere in the system.Engineering significance of vapor pressure  In a closed hydraulic system. water vaporizes rapidly in regions where the pressure drops below the vapor pressure. since the flow of fluid can sweep this cloud of bubbles on into an area of higher pressure where the bubbles will collapse suddenly. .  There will be local boiling and a cloud of vapor bubbles will form. and can cause serious problems.  Cavitations can affect the performance of hydraulic machinery such as pumps. turbines and propellers. Ex. and the impact of collapsing bubbles can cause local erosion of metal surface.  This phenomenon is known as cavitations. in pipelines or pumps.

liquids can resist small tensile forces at the interface between the liquid and air. known as surface tension.  The reason for the existence of this force arises from intermolecular attraction.  This causes a slight deformation at the surface of the liquid (the meniscus effect).Surface Tension  Liquids possess the properties of cohesion and adhesion due to molecular attraction.2: Surface Tension . 1. 1. .  At the surface of the liquid (Fig. and they act rather like a very thin membrane under tension. a molecule is surrounded by other molecules and intermolecular forces are symmetrical and in equilibrium.2a). In the body of the liquid (Fig. Figure 1.  Due to the property of cohesion.  This imbalance forces means that the molecules at the surface tend to be drawn together. a molecule has this force acting only through 180.  Surface tension is defined as force per unit length. and its unit is N/m.2b).

• For tube larger than 12 mm (1/2 in. such as mercury.) capillarity effects are negligible. such as water.Capillarity • The surface tension leads to the phenomenon known as capillarity • where a column of liquid in a tube is supported in the absence of an externally applied pressure. and fall in tubes that do not wet (cohesion > adhesion).). • Rise or fall of a liquid in a capillary tube is caused by surface tension and depends on the relative magnitude of cohesion of the liquid and the adhesion of the liquid to the walls of the containing vessels. . • Liquid rise in tubes if they wet a surface (adhesion > cohesion). • Capillarity is important when using tubes smaller than 10 mm (3/8 in.
