OBJECTIVES:

  • To understand the basic properties of the fluid, fluid kinematics, fluid dynamics and to analyse and appreciate the complexities involved in solving the fluid flow problems.

 

UNIT I             FLUID PROPERTIES AND FLUID STATICS                                            9

Fluid – definition, distinction between solid and fluid – Units and dimensions – Properties of fluids – density, specific weight, specific volume, specific gravity, temperature, viscosity, compressibility, vapour pressure, capillarity and surface tension – Fluid statics: concept of fluid static pressure, absolute and gauge pressures – pressure measurements by manometers and pressure gauges- forces on planes – centre of pressure – bouncy and floatation.

 

UNIT II            FLIUD KINEMATICS  AND  DYNAMICS                                                9

Fluid Kinematics – Flow visualization – lines of flow – types of flow – velocity field and acceleration – continuity equation (one and three dimensional differential forms)- Equation of streamline – stream function – velocity potential function – circulation – flow net. Fluid dynamics – equations of motion -Euler’s equation along a streamline – Bernoulli’s equation – applications – Venturi meter, Orifice meter and Pitot tube. Linear momentum equation and its application.

 

UNIT III           FLOW THROUGH PIPES                                                                        9

Viscous flow – Shear stress, pressure gradient relationship – laminar flow between parallel plates – Laminar flow through circular tubes   (Hagen poiseulle’s) – Hydraulic and energy gradient – flow through pipes – Darcy -Weisbach’s equation – pipe roughness -friction factor- Moody’s diagram- Major and minor losses of flow in pipes – Pipes in series and in parallel.

 

UNIT IV          BOUNDARY LAYER                                                                                  9

Boundary layer – definition- boundary layer on a flat plate – thickness and classification – displacement , energy and momentum thickness – Boundary layer separation and control – drag in flat plate – drag and lift coefficients.

 

UNIT V           DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS AND MODEL STUDIES                                 9

Fundamental dimensions – dimensional homogeneity – Rayleigh’s method and Buckingham Pi- Theorem – Dimensionless parameters – Similitude and model studies – Distorted Models.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:

  • The students will be able to get a basic knowledge of fluids in static, kinematic and dynamic equilibrium.
  • They will  also  gain  the  knowledge  of  the  applicability  of  physical  laws  in  addressing problems in hydraulics.
