OBJECTIVE:

• To understand the basic properties of the fluid, fluid kinematics, fluid dynamics and to
analyze 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, viscosity, compressibility, vapour
pressure, capillarity and surface tension – Fluid statics: concept of fluid static pressure, absolute and
gauge pressures – pressure measurements by manometers-forces on planes – centre of pressure –
buoyancy and floatation.

## UNIT II FLUID KINEMATICS AND DYNAMICS 9

Fluid Kinematics – Classification and types of flow – velocity field and acceleration – continuity
equation (one and three dimensional differential forms)- stream line-streak line-path line- stream
function – velocity potential function – 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 to pipe bend.

## UNIT III DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS AND MODEL STUDIES 9

Fundamental dimensions – dimensional homogeneity – Rayleigh’s method and Buckingham Pitheorem
– dimensionless parameters – similitudes and model studies – distorted models.

## UNIT IV FLOW THROUGH PIPES 9

Reynold’s experiment – laminar flow through circular pipe (Hagen poiseulle’s) – hydraulic and energy
gradient – flow through pipes – Darcy – Weisbach’s equation – pipe roughness -friction factorMoody’s
diagram- major and minor losses of flow in pipes – pipes in series and in parallel.

## UNIT V BOUNDARY LAYER 9

Boundary layer – definition- boundary layer on a flat plate – laminar and turbulent boundary layerdisplacement,
energy and momentum thickness – Momentum integral equation-Boundary layer
separation and control – drag on flat plate.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:

At the end of the course students will be able to

• Get a basic knowledge of fluids in static, kinematic and dynamic equilibrium.
• Understand and solve the problems related to equation of motion.
• Gain knowledge about dimensional and model analysis.
• Learn types of flow and losses of flow in pipes.
• Understand and solve the boundary layer problems.
