FLUID MECHANICS

 LPTC

3204

OBJECTIVES:
• To impart to the student knowledge on fluid properties, fluid statics, dynamic characteristics for through pipes and porous medium.
• To impart flow measurement and fluid machineries.

UNIT I

15

Methods of analysis and description - fluid as a continuum – Velocity and stress field - Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids – Classification of fluid motion

UNIT II

15

Fluid statics – basic equation - equilibrium of fluid element – pressure variation in a static fluid - application to manometry – Differential analysis of fluid motion – continuity, equation of motions, Bernoulli equation and Navier- Stokes equation.


UNIT III

15

The principle of dimensional homogeneity – dimensional analysis, Rayleigh method and the Pi- theorem - non-dimensional action of the basic equations - similitude - relationship between dimensional analysis and similitude - use of dimensional analysis for scale up studies

UNIT IV

15

Reynolds number regimes, internal flow - flow through pipes – pressure drop under laminar and turbulent flow conditions – major and minor losses; Line sizing; External flows - boundary layer concepts, boundary layer thickness under laminar and turbulent flow conditions- Flow over a sphere – friction and pressure drag - flow through fixed and fluidized beds.

UNIT V

15

Flow measurement - Constant and variable head meters; Velocity measurement techniques; Types, characteristics and sizing of valves; Classification, performance characteristics and sizing of pumps, compressors and fans

TOTAL : 75 PERIODS

OUTCOMES: On completion of this course, the students would have knowledge on
• Fluid properties and their characteristics while static and during flow through ducts, pipes and porous medium.
• Several machineries used to transport the fluid and their performance.
