Bar-Meir demonstrated that common Prandtl–Meyer explanation violates the conservation of mass and therefor the turn must be around a finite radius.xxxviii LIST OF TABLES Meir discovered the analytical solution for oblique shock and showed that there is a quiet buffer between the oblique shock and Prandtl–Meyer. He described and categorized the filling and evacuating of chamber by compressible fluid in which he also found analytical solutions to cases where the working fluid was ideal gas. he often feels clueless about computers and programing. While he writes his programs and does other computer chores. In his book “Basics of Fluid Mechanics”. The author spent years working on the sea (ships) as a engine sea officer but now the author prefers to remain on solid ground. He also build analytical solution to several moving shock cases. . While he is known to look like he knows about many things. He also constructed and explained many new categories for two flow regimes. The common explanation to Prandtl–Meyer function shows that flow can turn in a sharp corner. Engineers have constructed design that based on this conclusion.

Writing a book in the technical field is not the same as writing a novel.

To reach this possibility the collective book idea was created/ The social function can have at least two components. The desire to be an author of a well–known book (at least in his/her profession) will convince some to put forth the effort. One component is to come to know and socialize with many in the profession. so can we in creating textbooks by this powerful tool. Nigel R.ex. The student’s contributions can be done by adding a question and perhaps the solution. the popularity of the books should be one of the incentives for potential contributors. the reason is the pure fun of writing and organizing educational material. Thus. The collective material is much richer than any single person can create by himself. It is not just for experts to contribute. in the course of their teaching they have found that the textbook they were using contains sections that can be improved or that are not as good as their own notes. In a way. then that contributor will be the copyright holder of that specific section (even within question/answer sections). the writing of or contributing to this kind of books will serve as a social function. The following example explains this point: The army ant is a kind of carnivorous ant that lives and hunts in the tropics. this method is expected to accelerate the creation of these high quality books.. The book’s contributor’s names could be written by their sections. Thus. The secret of the ants’ power lies in their collective intelligence. For others the social part is as simple as a desire to reduce the price of college textbooks. If a contributor of a section in such a book can be easily identified. but also students who happened to be doing their homework. For example. For some authors. For some contributors/authors. the books on compressible flow and die casting became the most popular books in their respective area. ”Army Ants: A Collective Intelligence.

previous geniuses who work in this field. In this book it is hoped to insert, what and when a certain model is suitable than other models. One of the difference in this book is the insertion of the introduction to multiphase flow. Clearly, multiphase is an advance topic. However, some minimal familiarity can be helpful for many engineers who have to deal with non pure single phase fluid. This book is the third book in the series of POTTO project books. POTTO project books are open content textbooks so everyone are welcome to joint in. The topic of fluid mechanics was chosen just to fill the introduction chapter to compressible flow. During the writing it became apparent that it should be a book in its own right. In writing the chapter on fluid statics, there was a realization that it is the best chapter written on this topic. It is hoped that the other chapters will be as good this one. This book is written in the spirit of my adviser and mentor E.R.G. Eckert. Eckert, aside from his research activity, wrote the book that brought a revolution in the education of the heat transfer. Up to Egret’s book, the study of heat transfer was without any dimensional analysis. He wrote his book because he realized that the dimensional analysis utilized by him and his adviser (for the post doc), Ernst Schmidt, and their colleagues, must be taught in engineering classes. His book met strong criticism in which some called to “burn” his book. Today, however, there is no known place in world that does not teach according to Eckert’s doctrine. It is assumed that the same kind of individual(s) who criticized Eckert’s work will criticize this work. Indeed, the previous book, on compressible flow, met its opposition. For example, anonymous Wikipedia user name EMBaero claimed that the material in the book is plagiarizing, he just doesn’t know from where and what. Maybe that was the reason that he felt that is okay to plagiarize the book on Wikipedia. These criticisms will not change the future or the success of the ideas in this work. As a wise person says “don’t tell me that it is wrong, show me what is wrong”; this is the only reply. With all the above, it must be emphasized that this book is not expected to revolutionize the field but change some of the way things are taught. The book is organized into several chapters which, as a traditional textbook, deals with a basic introduction to the fluid properties and concepts (under construction). The second chapter deals with Thermodynamics. The third book chapter is a review of mechanics. The next topic is statics. When the Static Chapter was written, this author did not realize that so many new ideas will be inserted into this topic. As traditional texts in this field, ideal flow will be presented with the issues of added mass and added forces (under construction). The classic issue of turbulence (and stability) will be presented. An introduction to multi–phase flow, not a traditional topic, will be presented next (again under construction). The next two chapters will deals with open channel flow and gas dynamics. At this stage, dimensional analysis will be present (again under construction).

How This Book Was Written

This book started because I needed an introduction to the compressible flow book. After a while it seems that is easier to write a whole book than the two original planned chapters. In writing this book, it was assumed that introductory book on fluid mechanics should not contained many new ideas but should be modern in the material presentation. There are numerous books on fluid mechanics but none of which is open content. The approach adapted in this book is practical, and more hands–on approach. This statement really meant that the book is intent to be used by students to solve their exams and also used by practitioners when they search for solutions for practical problems. So, issue of proofs so and so are here only either to explain a point or have a solution of exams. Otherwise, this book avoids this kind of issues. The structure of Hansen, Streeter and Wylie, and Shames books were adapted and used as a scaffolding for this book. This author was influenced by Streeter and Wylie book which was his undergrad textbooks. The chapters are not written in order. The first 4 chapters were written first because they were supposed to be modified and used as fluid mechanics introduction in “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow.” Later, multi–phase flow chapter was written. The presentation of some of the chapters is slightly different from other books because the usability of the computers. The book does not provide the old style graphical solution methods yet provides the graphical explanation of things. Of course, this book was written on Linux (Micro$oftLess book). This book was written using the vim editor for editing (sorry never was able to be comfortable with emacs). The graphics were done by TGIF, the best graphic program that this author experienced so far. The figures were done by gle. The spell checking was done by ispell, and hope to find a way to use gaspell, a program that currently cannot be used on new Linux systems. The figure in cover page was created by Genick Bar-Meir, and is copyleft by him.

This book, Basics of Fluid Mechanics, describes the fundamentals of fluid mechanics phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace all introductory textbook(s) or instructor’s notes for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students but also for technical peoples. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc. The structure of this book is such that many of the chapters could be usable independently. For example, if you need information about, say, statics’ equations, you can read just chapter (4). I hope this makes the book easier to use as a reference manual. However, this manuscript is first and foremost a textbook, and secondly a reference manual only as a lucky coincidence. I have tried to describe why the theories are the way they are, rather than just listing “seven easy steps” for each task. This means that a lot of information is presented which is not necessary for everyone. These explanations have been marked as such and can be skipped.9 Reading everything will, naturally, increase your understanding of the many aspects of fluid mechanics. This book is written and maintained on a volunteer basis. Like all volunteer work, there is a limit on how much effort I was able to put into the book and its organization. Moreover, due to the fact that English is my third language and time limitations, the explanations are not as good as if I had a few years to perfect them. Nevertheless, I believe professionals working in many engineering fields will benefit from this information. This book contains many worked examples, which can be very useful for many. I have left some issues which have unsatisfactory explanations in the book, marked with a Mata mark. I hope to improve or to add to these areas in the near future.

Furthermore, I hope that many others will participate of this project and will contribute to this book (even small contributions such as providing examples or editing mistakes are needed). I have tried to make this text of the highest quality possible and am interested in your comments and ideas on how to make it better. Incorrect language, errors, ideas for new areas to cover, rewritten sections, more fundamental material, more mathematics (or less mathematics); I am interested in it all. I am particularly interested in the best arrangement of the book. If you want to be involved in the editing, graphic design, or proofreading, please drop me a line. You may contact me via Email at “”. Naturally, this book contains material that never was published before (sorry cannot avoid it). This material never went through a close content review. While close content peer review and publication in a professional publication is excellent idea in theory. In practice, this process leaves a large room to blockage of novel ideas and plagiarism. If you would like be “peer reviews” or critic to my new ideas please send me your comment(s). Even reaction/comments from individuals like David Marshall10 .

CHAPTER 1 Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
1.1 What is Fluid Mechanics?
Fluid mechanics deals with the study of all fluids under static and dynamic situations. Fluid mechanics is a branch of continuous mechanics which deals with a relationship between forces, motions, and statical conditions in continuous material. This study area deals with many and diversified problems such as surface tension, fluid statics, flow in enclose bodies, or flow round bodies (solid or otherwise), flow stability, etc. In fact, almost any action a person is doing involves some kind of a fluid mechanics problem. Furthermore, the boundary between the solid mechanics and fluid mechanics is some kind of gray shed and not a sharp distinction (see Figure 1.1 for the complex relationships between the different branches which only part of it should be drawn in the same time.). For example, glass appears as a solid material, but a closer look reveals that the glass is a liquid with a large viscosity. A proof of the glass “liquidity” is the change of the glass thickness in high windows in European Churches after hundred years. The bottom part of the glass is thicker than the top part. Materials like sand (some call it quick sand) and grains should be treated as liquids. It is known that these materials have the ability to drown people. Even material such as aluminum just below the mushy zone also behaves as a liquid similarly to butter. After it was established that the boundaries of fluid mechanics aren’t sharp, the discussion in this book is limited to simple and (mostly) Newtonian (sometimes power fluids) fluids which will be defined later. The fluid mechanics study involve many fields that have no clear boundary between them. Researchers distinguish between orderly flow and chaotic flow as the laminar flow and the turbulent flow. The fluid mechanics can also be distinguish between a single phase flow and multiphase flow (flow made more than one phase or single distinguishable material). The last boundary (as all the boundaries in fluid mechanics)

It is this author’s personal experience that the knowledge and ability to know in what area the situation lay is one of the main problems. when a general model is need because more parameters are effecting the situation.1. -1. http://ekkinc. After it was made clear that the boundaries of fluid mechanics aren’t sharp.

conflicts with the reality. turbulence. Reviewing many books on fluid mechanics made it clear. “The theory of fluids must necessarily be based upon experiment. The first approach introduces the fluid kinematic and then the basic governing equations.) on the principles of buoyancy. Later.C. Yet. The ideal flow (frictionless flow) should be expanded compared to the regular treatment. 1. almost all knowledge of the ancients can be summarized as application of instincts. For example. This discrepancy between theory and practice is called the “D’Alembert paradox” and serves to demonstrate the limitations of theory alone in solving fluid problems. Euler. chapters on open channel flow (as a sub class of the multiphase flow) and compressible flow (with the latest developments) are provided. When cities increased to a larger size. two different of school of thoughts were created: the first be- . He also made several attempts to study the flight (birds) and developed some concepts on the origin of the forces. a large population created a need to solve waste (sewage) and some basic understanding was created. This fact was acknowledged by D’Alembert who stated that. This book is unique in providing chapter on multiphase flow. Bernoulli family.” For example the concept of ideal liquid that leads to motion with no resistance.2.2 Brief History The need to have some understanding of fluid mechanics started with the need to obtain water supply. This book attempts to find a hybrid approach in which the kinematic is presented first (aside to standard initial four chapters) follow by Integral analysis and continued by Differential analysis.

The second approach deals with the Integral Analysis to be followed with Differential Analysis. Newton. and D’Alembert. boundary layer and internal and external flow . There were no calculations even with the great need for water supply and transportation. the simplified private cases must be explained. These two approaches have justifications and positive points. After his initial work. These two approaches pose a dilemma to anyone who writes an introductory book for the fluid mechanics. The first progress in fluid mechanics was made by Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) who built the first chambered canal lock near Milan. These aqueducts reached their greatest size and grandeur in those of the City of Rome and China. Naturally. with the exception Archimedes (250 B. the knowledge of fluid mechanics (hydraulic) increasingly gained speed by the contributions of Galileo. one of the main goals of this book is to explain what model should be applied. There are two main approaches of presenting an introduction of fluid mechanics materials. For example. people realized that water can be used to move things and provide power. As in thermodynamics. etc. Torricelli. Thus. Such absurd analysis are common among engineers who do not know which model can be applied. aqueducts were constructed.1. and continue with Empirical Analysis. there isn’t a clear winner. At that stage theory and experiments had some discrepancy. Before dealing with the boundaries. to be followed by stability. people realized that wells have to be dug and crude pumping devices need to be constructed.

Thus. the demand for vigorous scientific knowledge that can be applied to various liquids as opposed to formula for every fluid was created by the expansion of many industries. Today many problems can be analyzed by using the numerical tools and provide reasonable results. for example. resistance by Darcy. In the middle of the nineteen century. There are many open source programs that can analyze many fluid mechanics situations. Examples of such work are Hermann von Helmholtz’s concept of vortexes (1858). Rose. Rayleigh. Chezy. As results it created today “strange” names: Hydrodynamics. many call Prandtl as the father of modern fluid mechanics. Stanton. Gas Dynamics. the development of dimensional analysis by Rayleigh.

The fluid is mainly divided into two categories: liquids and gases. The pressure component in the area . EKK. the pressure has three components. Inc). This difference can be. This is a result of division of a vector by a vector and it is referred to as tensor. if the change of pressure is significantly less than that. Hence. no weather prediction program can produce good engineering quality results (where the snow will fall within 50 kilometers accuracy. This test creates a new material group that shows dual behaviors.g it has a direction. under certain limits. which is force per area has a new meaning. sharp even though in reality this difference isn’t sharp. Thus.1). 1. Gas has no free interface/surface (since it does fill the entire volume). The main difference between the liquids and gases state is that gas will occupy the whole volume while liquids has an almost fix volume. For example. no shear stress is applied. the discussion on the mathematical meaning will be presented (later version). This differentiation leads to three groups of materials: solids and liquids. these programs are as good as the input provided. The study of this kind of material called rheology and it will (almost) not be discussed in this book. for most practical purposes considered. Area of three–dimensional object has no single direction. But below the critical point. The unit used to measure is [N]. the pressure will not affect the volume. a change in the volume by more 5% will required tens of thousands percent change of the pressure. The traditional quantity. For example. it behaves like solid and under others it behaves like liquid (see Figure 1. It is evident from this discussion that when a liquid is at rest. Building a car with this accuracy is a disaster). the emphasis is on the physics. This quantity was discussed in physics class but here it has an additional meaning. The gas fills the volume and liquid cannot. It is a known fact said that the fluid continuously and permanently deformed under shear stress while solid exhibits a finite deformation which does not change with time.3 Kinds of Fluids Some differentiate fluid from solid by the reaction to shear stress. so at this stage the tensor will have to be broken into its components. In gaseous phase. the change of water pressure by 1000% only change the volume by less than 1 percent. and it is referred to the direction of the area. KINDS OF FLUIDS 5 other cases that numerical analysis cannot provide any meaningful result (trends). The direction of area is perpendicular to the area. these kinds of areas should be addressed infinitesimally and locally.3. The second quantity discussed here is the area. In this book. assuming turbulent flow for still flow simply provides erroneous results (see for example. one in the area direction and two perpendicular to the area.1. The first is force which was reviewed in physics. It is also said that liquid cannot return to their original state after the deformation. Later. then the change of volume is at best 5%. For the discussion here. The area is measured in [m2 ]. Thus. So. The difference between a gas phase to a liquid phase above the critical point are practically minor. It must be remember that force is a vector. In the best scenario. e. There are several quantities that have to be addressed in this discussion. any change in pressure directly affects the volume.

The units used for the pressure components is [N/m2 ]. (1. It doesn’t mean ǫ that a sharp and abrupt change in the density cannot occur. In solid mechanics.

Experiments show that the increase of height will increase the velocity up to a certain range.2 shows the density as log ℓ a function of the sample size. -1.1) It must be noted that ε is chosen so that the continuous assumption is not broken. 1.3. After certain sample size. the principles of statistical mechanics must be utilized. Thus. h is the distance between the plates. the density is defined as Fig. the F denotes the force. Figure 1. it was shown that when the force per area increases. When this assumption is broken. The density can be changed and it is a function of time and space (location) but must have a continues property. the aim is to develop differential equation. In this discussion. isn’t it?).2) Where A is the area. thus the small distance analysis is applicable.

In steady state.8) it follows that U =h δβ δt (1.4) and (1. the regular approximation provides Fig.1.6) yields τxy = µ δβ δt (1.9) with equation (1. applying the coefficient to obtain a new equality as τxy = µ U h (1.11) .6) Where µ is called the absolute viscosity or dynamic viscosity which will be discussed later in this chapter in great length.10) If the velocity profile is linear between the plate (it will be shown later that it is consistent with derivations of velocity). then it can be written for small a angel that dU δβ = δt dy (1. Hence. The deformation of fluid due to shear geometry stress as progression of time. d = U δt = h δβ (1. -1.

It simply depends on the structure of the flow as will be discussed in the chapter on multi phase flow. There is no such a thing of viscosity at 30% liquid. There is a large class of materials which shows a non-linear relationship with velocity for any shear stress. Not all the materials obey this relationship. The viscosity coefficient is .10 CHAPTER 1. This class of materials can be approximated by a single polynomial term that is a = bxn . The lines in the above diagrams are only to show constant pressure lines.7.

When the body is at the position shown in Figure 4. the body stability must be based on the difference between the body’s local positions rather than the “absolute” stability. the cubic results in returning to the original position. The third state is when the couple forces do have zero moment. If the new immerse volume creates a new center in such way that couple forces (gravity and buoyancy) try to return the body.36c. The reason for this local stability of the cubic is that other positions are less stable. When the body is tilted at a small angle. The cubic is stable in six positions (every cubic has six faces).

the Lagrangian system turned out to be difficult to solve and to analyze. Langrange (1736–1813) who formulated the equations of motion for the moving fluid particles. Leonard Euler (1707–1783) suggested an alternative approach. This kind of analysis is reasonable and it referred to in the literature as the Lagrangian Analysis. L.1. The main difficulty lies in the fact that every particle has to be traced to its original state. When the fluid system moves or changes.

At the free surface the velocity has only normal component9 and thus shear work vanishes there as well. In this case. the shear stresses at the exit are normal to the flow direction hence the shear work is vanished. ENERGY CONSERVATION The energy balance can be expressed by equation (7.

This integral can be evaluated for any given velocity profile. A large family of velocity profiles is laminar or parabolic (for one directional flow)11 . For a pipe geometry, the velocity is U r R = U (¯) = Umax 1 − r2 = 2 Uave 1 − r2 r ¯ ¯ (7.36)

It can be noticed that the velocity is presented as a function of the reduced radius12 . The relationship between Umax to the averaged velocity, Uave is obtained by using equation (7.32) which yields 1/2. Substituting equation (7.36) into equation (7.35) results Uave 2 V U 2 dV

The correction factor for many other velocity profiles and other geometries can be smaller or larger than this value. For circular shape, a good guess number is about 1.1. In this case, for simplicity reason, it is assumed that the averaged velocity indeed represent the energy in the tank or container. Calculations according to this point can improve the accurately based on the above discussion. The difference between the “averaged momentum” velocity and the “averaged kinetic” velocity is also due to the fact that energy is added for different directions while in the momentum case, different directions cancel each other out.
11 Laminar flow is not necessarily implies that the flow velocity profile is parabolic. The flow is parabolic only when the flow is driven by pressure or gravity. More about this issue in the Differential Analysis Chapter. 12 The advantage is described in the Dimensional Analysis Chapter.

Equation (7.69) is referred in the literature as Torricelli’s equation18 This analysis has several drawbacks which limits the accuracy of the calculations. Yet, this analysis demonstrates the usefulness of the integral analysis to provide a reasonable solution. This analysis can be improved by experimental investigating the phenomenon. The experimental coefficient can be added to account for the dissipation and other effects such dh ∼ =C dt 2gh (7.70)

7.2 Limitation of Integral Approach
Some of accuracy issues to enhance the quality and improvements of the integral method were suggested in the analysis of the emptying tank. There are problems that the integral methods even with these enhancements simply cannot tackle. The improvements to the integral methods are the corrections to the estimates of the energy or other quantities in the conservation equations. In the calculations
18 Evangelista Torricelli (October 15, 1608 October 25, 1647) was an Italian physicist and mathematician. He derived this equation based on similar principle to Bernoulli equation (which later leads to Bernoulli’s equation). Today the exact reference to his work is lost only “sketches” of his lecture elude work. He was student (not formal) and follower of Galileo Galilei. It seems that Torricelli was an honest man who gave to others and he died at young age of 39 while in his prime.



of the exit velocity of a tank, two such corrections were presented. The first type is the prediction of the velocities profile (or the concentration profile). The second type of corrections is the understanding that averaged of the total field is different from the averaged of different zooms. In the case of the tank, the averaged velocity in x direction is zero yet the averaged velocity in the two zooms (two halves) is not zero. In fact, the averaged energy in the x direction contributes or effects the energy equation. The accuracy issues that integral methods intrinsically suffers from no ability to exact flow field and thus lost the accuracy as was discussed in the example. The integral method does not handle the problems such as the free surface with reasonable accuracy. Furthermore, the knowledge of whether the flow is laminar or turbulent (later on this issue) has to come from different techniques. Hence the prediction can skew the actual predictions. In the analysis of the tank it was assumed that the dissipation can be igD nored. In cases that dissipation play major air air role, the integral does not provide a sufH equilibrioum level ficient tool to analyze the issue at hand. H For example, the analysis of the oscillating manometer cannot be carried by the intelowest level for the liquid gral methods. A liquid in manometer is disturbed from a rest by a distance of H0 . The description H(t) as a function of time requires exact knowledge of the velocity field. Additionally, the integral methods is Fig. -7.4. Flow in an oscillating manometer. too crude to handle issues of free interface. These problem were minor for the emptying the tank but for the oscillating manometer it is the core of the problem. Hence different techniques are required. The discussion on the limitations was not provided to discard usage of this method but rather to provide a guidance of use with caution. The integral method is a powerful and yet simple method but has has to be used with the limitations of the method in mind.

7.3 Approximation of Energy Equation
The emptying the tank problem was complicated even with all the simplifications that were carried. Engineers in order to reduce the work further simplify the energy equation. It turn out that these simplifications can provide reasonable results and key understanding of the physical phenomena and yet with less work, the problems can be solved. The following sections provides further explanation.

The reason is that while the velocity is constant.73) Dividing equation the mass flow rate provides Steady State Equation.

The differential analysis allows the investigation of the flow field in greater detail. the solution is not unique. First these equations were derived by Claude– Louis–Marie Navier as it is known in 1827. One of the approaches is to reduce the equations by eliminating the viscosity effects. The equations without the viscosity effects are referred to as the ideal flow equations (Euler Equations) which will be discussed in the next chapter. as he done to many other equations or conditions. 215 .g. Like many equations they were independently derived by several people. These equations are named after Claude–Louis Navier–Marie and George Gabriel Stokes. with a presentation of the “non–regular” solutions will be presented with the associated issues of stability. Later in the Chapters on Real Fluid and Turbulence. The concepts of Add Mass and 1 Which can be view as complementary analysis to the integral analysis. Barr´ de e Saint Venant (1843) and George Gabriel Stokes (1845) derived these equation based on the relationship between stress and rate–of–strain (this approach is presented in this book). However even for the “regular” solution the mathematics is very complex. derived these equations in 1831 for the same arguments as Navier.1 Introduction The integral analysis has limited accuracy. which leads to a different approach of differential analysis. As usual Simon-Denis Poisson independently. This analysis leads to partial differential equations which are referred to as the Navier-Stokes equations. A discussion about the “regular” solution is present and a brief discussion about limitations when the solution is applicable. In differential analysis.CHAPTER 8 Differential Analysis 8. The foundations for their arguments or motivations are based on a molecular view of how stresses are exerted between fluid layers. Navier-Stokes equations are non–linear and there are more than one possible solution in many cases (if not most cases) e. the emphasis is on infinitesimal scale and thus the analysis provides better accuracy1 .

These equations cannot satisfy the boundary conditions in other cases and in way the fluid pushes the boundary condition(s) further downstream (choked flow). the following can be written D Dt ρdV = d dt ρdV + Urn ρ dA = 0 Fig. The choked flow is associated with single phase flow (even the double choked flow) while the Interfacial instability associated with the Multi–Phase flow. Historically.1. there are cases when the complying with the boundary conditions leads to a discontinuity (shock or choked flow).1. DIFFERENTIAL ANALYSIS Add Force. the boundary conditions create instability which alters the boundary conditions itself which is known as Interfacial instability. These issues are discussed in Open Channel Flow and Compressible Flow chapters.

books on multiphase flow were written more as a literature review or heavy on the mathematics. Calculations of many kinds of flow deals with more than one phase or material flow1 . It is recognized that multiphase flow is still evolving. it is believed that the interactions/calculations requires a full year class and hence.

This chapter provides information that is more or less in consensus2 . there was a Ph.2 History The study of multi–phase flow started for practical purposes after World War II. In the past. the nature of multiphase flow requires solving many equations. Initially the models were using simple assumptions. only the trends and simple calculations are described. the topic of multi–phase flow is ignored in an introductory class on fluid mechanics.CHAPTER 9 Multi–Phase Flow 9. Additionally. As result. working for the government who analyzed filing cavity with liquid metal (aluminum). The author believes that the trends and effects of multiphase flow could and should be introduced and considered by engineers. For many engineers. The knowledge in this topic without any doubts. 9. is required for many engineering problems. 2 Or when the scientific principles simply dictate. For simple models. there is not a consensus to the exact map of many flow regimes. this class will be the only opportunity to be exposed to this topic. Here.

If the pressure loss was linear then the total loss will be the summation of the two pressure losses (of the lighter liquid (gas) and the heavy liquid). multi–phase flow parameters definitions. The flow patterns or regimes were not considered. MULTI–PHASE FLOW to find the viscosity). They postulate that there is a relationship between the pressure loss of a single phase and combine phases pressure loss as a function of the pressure loss of the other phase.3 What to Expect From This Chapter As oppose to the tradition of the other chapters in this book and all other Potto project books. this chapter will explain the core concepts of the multiphase flow and their relationship.

This chapter will provide: a category of combination of phases.262 CHAPTER 9. Taitle and Duckler’s map is not universal and it is only applied to certain liquid–gas conditions. Taitle–Duckler’s map is not applicable for microgravity. Which leads to the concept of flow regime maps. Also the researchers looked at the situation when the different regimes are applicable. This chapter will introduce these concepts so that the engineer not only be able to understand a conversation on multi-phase but also. When it became apparent that specific models were needed for different situations. a description of what to expect in this chapter is provided. Taitle and Duckler suggested a map based on five non-dimensional groups which are considered as the most useful today. partial discussion on speed of sound of different regimes. and more importantly. For example. flow parameters effects on the flow regimes. Researchers that followed Lockhart and Martinelli looked for a different map for different combination of phases. will know and understand the trends. Hence.

For example. the breaks would started to work after about 20 seconds in the last wagon. For example. This category should include any distinction of phase/material. there are two possibilities for two different materials to flow (it is also correct for solid–liquid and any other combination). the cleanness of the air or the fact that air is a mixture is ignored.

The same can be said for gas–gas flow. a 10% change of the speed of sound due to dust particles in air could reduce the stopping time by 2 seconds (50 meter difference in stopping) and can cause an accident.

Thus. Many industrial process also include liquid-liquid such as painting.264 CHAPTER 9. This flow is used by engineers to reduce the cost of moving crude oil through a long pipes system.

This definition (open channel flow) continues for small amount of lighter liquid as long as the heavier flow can be calculated as open channel flow (ignoring the lighter liquid). The vertical configuration has two cases. and what ever between them. the counter–current flow has a limited length window of possibility in a vertical flow in conduits with the exception of magnetohydrodynamics.

The geometries (even the boundaries) of open channel flow are very diverse. two liquids can have three main categories: vertical. For example. the flow of gas–liquid can have several flow regimes in one situation while the flow of liquid–liquid will (probably) have only one flow regime. In general. the heavy liquid flows on the Fig.1. 9. the counter–current flow must have special configurations of long length of flow. Additionally.1 Horizontal Flow The typical regimes for horizontal flow are stratified flow (open channel flow. The flow in inclined angle (that not covered by the word “near”) exhibits flow regimes not much different from the other two. Generally. it is referred as counter–current. water and air flow as oppose to water and oil flow. Thus. 9. For example. the flow is referred to as open channel flow.5.1 Co–Current Flow In Co–Current flow. When the flow rate of the lighter liquid is almost zero. This issue of incline flow will not be covered in this chapter. 5 With the exception of the extremely smaller diameter where Rayleigh–Taylor instability is an important issue. a reduction of the pressure by half will double the gas volumetric flow rate while the change in the liquid is negligible. The channel flow will be discussed in a greater detail in Open Channel Flow chapter. 5 top as depicted in Figure 9. This kind of flow regime is referred to as horizontal flow. There is no exact meaning to the word “near vertical” or “near horizontal” and there is no consensus on the limiting angles (not to mention to have limits as a function with any parameter that determine the limiting angle).5. Open channel flow appears in many nature (river) as well in industrial process such as the die casting process where liquid metal is injected into a cylinder (tube) shape. The main difference between the liquid–liquid flow to gas-liquid flow is that gas density is extremely lighter than the liquid density. It is common to differentiate between the vertical (and near vertical) and horizontal (and near horizontal). The flow regimes are referred to the arrangement of the fluids. The other characteristic that is different between the gas flow and the liquid flow is the variation of the density. Stratified flow in horizontal tubes when bottom and lighter liquid flows on the the liquids flow is very slow. and annular flow.2. For low velocity (low flow rate) of the two liquids. -9.9. up or down.



As the lighter liquid (or the gas phase) flow rate increases (superficial velocity), the friction between the phases increase. The superficial velocity is referred to as the velocity that any phase will have if the other phase was not exist. This friction is one of the cause for the instability which manifested itself as waves and changing the surface from straight line to a different configuration (see Figure 9.3). The wave shape is created to keep the gas and the liquid velocity equal and at the same time to have shear stress to be balance by surface tension. The configuration of the cross section not only depend on the surface tension, and other physical properties of the fluids but also on the material of the conduit. As the lighter liquid velocity increases two things can happen (1) wave size increase and (2) the shape of cross section continue to deform. Light Liquid Light Liquid Some referred to this regime as wavy stratified flow Heavy Liquid Heavy Liquid but this definition is not accepted by all as a category by itself. In fact, all the two phase flow are categorized by wavy flow which will proven later. Fig. -9.3. Kind of Stratified flow in There are two paths that can occur on the heavier horizontal tubes. liquid flow rate. If the heavier flow rate is small, then the wave cannot reach to the crown and the shape is deformed to the point that all the heavier liquid is around the periphery. This kind of flow regime is referred to as annular flow. If the heavier liquid flow rate is larger6 than the distance, for the wave to reach the conduit crown is smaller. At some point, when the lighter liquid flow increases, the heavier liquid wave reaches to the crown of the pipe. At this stage, the flow pattern is referred to as slug flow or plug flow. Plug flow is characterized by regions of lighter liquid filled with drops of the heavier liquid with Plug (or Slug) of the heavier liquid (with bubble of the lighter liquid). These plugs are separated by large “chunks” that almost fill the entire tube. The plugs are flowing in a succession (see Figure 9.4). The pressure drop of this kind of regime is significantly larger than the stratified flow. The slug flow cannot be assumed to be as homogeneous flow nor it can exhibit some average viscosity. The “average” viscosity depends on the flow and thus making it as insignificant way to do the calculations. Further increase of the lighter liquid flow rate move the flow regime into annular flow. Thus, the possibility to go through slug flow regime depends on if there is enough liquid flow rate. Choking occurs in compressible Light Liquid flow when the flow rate is above a certain point. All liquids are compressible Heavy Liquid to some degree. For liquid which the density is a strong and primary function of the pressure, choking occurs relatively Fig. -9.4. Plug flow in horizontal tubes when the closer/sooner. Thus, the flow that starts liquids flow is faster. as a stratified flow will turned into a slug flow or stratified wavy7 flow after a certain distance depends on the heavy flow rate (if

this category is accepted). After a certain distance, the flow become annular or the flow will choke. The choking can occur before the annular flow regime is obtained depending on the velocity and compressibility of the lighter liquid. Hence, as in compressible flow, liquid–liquid flow has a maximum combined of the flow rate (both phases). This maximum is known as double choking phenomenon. The reverse way is referred to the process where the starting point is high flow rate and the flow rate is decreasing. As in many fluid mechanics and magnetic fields, the return path is not move the exact same way. There is even a possibility to return on different flow regime. For example, flow that had slug flow in its path can be returned as stratified wavy flow. This phenomenon is refer to as hysteresis. Flow that is under small angle from the horizontal will be similar to the horizontal flow. However, there is no consensus how far is the “near” means. Qualitatively, the “near” angle depends on the length of the pipe. The angle decreases with the length of the pipe. Besides the length, other parameters can affect the “near.”

The results of the above discussion are depicted in Figure 9.5. As many things in multiphase, this map is only characteristics of the “normal” conditions, e.g. in normal gravitation, weak to strong surface tension effects (air/water in “normal” gravity), etc. Vertical Flow

The vertical flow has two possibilities, with the gravity or against it. In engineering application, the vertical flow against the gravity is more common used. There is a difference between flowing with the gravity and flowing against the gravity. The buoyancy

is acting in two different directions for these two flow regimes. For the flow against gravity, the lighter liquid has a buoyancy that acts as an “extra force” to move it faster and this effect is opposite for the heavier liquid. The opposite is for the flow with gravity. Thus, there are different flow regimes for these two situations. The main reason that causes the difference is that the heavier liquid is more dominated by gravity (body forces) while the lighter liquid is dominated by the pressure driving forces. Flow Against Gravity For vertical flow against gravity, the flow cannot start as a stratified flow. The heavier liquid has to occupy almost the entire cross section before it can flow because of the gravity forces. Thus, the flow starts as a bubble flow. The increase of the lighter liquid flow rate will increase the number of bubbles until some bubbles start to collide. When many bubbles collide, they create a large bubble and the flow is referred to as slug flow or plug flow (see Figure 9.6). Notice, the different mechanism in creating the plug flow in horizontal flow compared to the vertical flow. Further increase of lighter liquid flow rate will increase the slug size as more bubbles collide to create “super slug”; the flow regime is referred as elongated bubble flow. The flow is less stable as more turbulent flow and several “super slug” or churn flow appears in more chaotic way, see Figure 9.6. After additional increase of “super slug” , all these “elongated slug” unite to become an annular flow. Again, it can be noted the difference in the mechanism that create annular flow for vertical and horizontal flow. Any further increase transforms the outer liquid layer into bubbles in the inner liquid. Flow of near vertical against the gravity in two–phase does not deviate from vertical. The choking can occur at any point depends on the fluids and temperature and pressure.



The above discussion mostly explained the Dispersed Dispersed flow in a vertical configuration when the Bubble Bubble surface tension can be neglected. In cases where the surface tension is very important. Pulsing For example, out in space between gas and liquid (large density difference) the situaPulsing & Bubbling tion is different. The flow starts as disTrickling persed bubble (some call it as “gas conFlow Spray or tinuous”) because the gas phase occupies Mist Flow most of column. The liquid flows through Gas Flow Rage a trickle or channeled flow that only partially wets part of the tube. The interaction between the phases is minimal and can be Fig. -9.7. A dimensional vertical flow map considered as the “open channel flow” of under very low gravity against the gravity. the vertical configuration. As the gas flow increases, the liquid becomes more turbulent and some parts enter into the gas phase as drops. When the flow rate of the gas increases further, all the gas phase change into tiny drops of liquid and this kind of regime referred to as mist flow. At a higher rate of liquid flow and a low flow rate of gas, the regime liquid fills the entire void and the gas is in small bubble and this flow referred to as bubbly flow. In the medium range of the flow rate of gas and liquid, there is pulse flow in which liquid is moving in frequent pulses. The common map is based on dimensionless parameters. Here, it is presented in a dimension form to explain the trends (see Figure 9.7). In the literature, Figure 9.7 presented in dimensionless coordinates. The abscissa is a function of combination of Froude ,Reynolds, and Weber numbers. The ordinate is a combination of flow rate ratio and density ratio. Flow With The Gravity As opposed to the flow against gravity, this flow can starts with stratified flow. A good example for this flow regime is a water fall. The initial part for this flow is more significant. Since the heavy liquid can be supplied from the “wrong” point/side, the initial part has a larger section compared to the flow against the gravity flow. After the flow has settled, the flow continues in a stratified configuration. The transitions between the flow regimes is similar to stratified flow. However, the points where these transitions occur are different from the horizontal flow. While this author is not aware of an actual model, it must be possible to construct a model that connects this configuration with the stratified flow where the transitions will be dependent on the angle of inclinations.
Liquid Flow Rate

9.6 Multi–Phase Flow Variables Definitions
Since the gas–liquid system is a specific case of the liquid–liquid system, both will be united in this discussion. However, for the convenience of the terms “gas and liquid” will be used to signify the lighter and heavier liquid, respectively. The liquid–liquid (also



gas–liquid) flow is an extremely complex three–dimensional transient problem since the flow conditions in a pipe may vary along its length, over its cross section, and with time. To simplify the descriptions of the problem and yet to retain the important features of the flow, some variables are defined so that the flow can be described as a one-dimensional flow. This method is the most common and important to analyze two-phase flow pressure drop and other parameters. Perhaps, the only serious missing point in this discussion is the change of the flow along the distance of the tube.


Multi–Phase Averaged Variables Definitions

The total mass flow rate through the tube is the sum of the mass flow rates of the two phases m = mG + mL ˙ ˙ ˙ (9.1)

It is common to define the mass velocity instead of the regular velocity because the “regular” velocity changes along the length of the pipe. The gas mass velocity is GG = mG ˙ A (9.2)

Where A is the entire area of the tube. It has to be noted that this mass velocity does not exist in reality. The liquid mass velocity is GL = The mass flow of the tube is then G= m ˙ A (9.4) mL ˙ A (9.3)

It has to be emphasized that this mass velocity is the actual velocity. The volumetric flow rate is not constant (since the density is not constant) along the flow rate and it is defined as QG = and for the liquid QL = GL ρL (9.6) GG = UsG ρG (9.5)

For liquid with very high bulk modulus (almost constant density), the volumetric flow rate can be considered as constant. The total volumetric volume vary along the tube length and is Q = QL + QG (9.7)



Ratio of the gas flow rate to the total flow rate is called the ’quality’ or the “dryness fraction” and is given by X= GG mG ˙ = m ˙ G (9.8)

In a similar fashion, the value of (1 − X) is referred to as the “wetness fraction.” The last two factions remain constant along the tube length as long the gas and liquid masses remain constant. The ratio of the gas flow cross sectional area to the total cross sectional area is referred as the void fraction and defined as α= AG A (9.9)

This fraction is vary along tube length since the gas density is not constant along the tube length. The liquid fraction or liquid holdup is LH = 1 − α = AL A (9.10)

It must be noted that Liquid holdup, LH is not constant for the same reasons the void fraction is not constant. The actual velocities depend on the other phase since the actual cross section the phase flows is dependent on the other phase. Thus, a superficial velocity is commonly defined in which if only one phase is using the entire tube. The gas superficial velocity is therefore defined as UsG = The liquid superficial velocity is UsL = GL (1 − X) m ˙ = = QL ρL ρL A (9.12) GG Xm ˙ = = QG ρG ρG A (9.11)

Since UsL = QL and similarly for the gas then Um = UsG + UsL (9.13)

Where Um is the averaged velocity. It can be noticed that Um is not constant along the tube. The average superficial velocity of the gas and liquid are different. Thus, the ratio of these velocities is referred to as the slip velocity and is defined as the following SLP = UG UL (9.14)

Slip ratio is usually greater than unity. Also, it can be noted that the slip velocity is not constant along the tube.


CHAPTER 9. MULTI–PHASE FLOW For the same velocity of phases (SLP = 1), the mixture density is defined as ρm = α ρG + (1 − α) ρL (9.15)

This density represents the density taken at the “frozen” cross section (assume the volume is the cross section times infinitesimal thickness of dx). The average density of the material flowing in the tube can be evaluated by looking at the definition of density. The density of any material is defined as ρ = m/V and thus, for the flowing material it is ρ= m ˙ Q (9.16)

Where Q is the volumetric flow rate. Substituting equations (9.1) and (9.7) into equation (9.16) results in
mG ˙ mL ˙

ρaverage =

˙ X m + (1 − X) m ˙ ˙ X m + (1 − X) m ˙ = ˙ X m (1 − X) m ˙ QG + QL + ρG ρL


Equation (9.17) can be simplified by canceling the m and noticing the (1−X)+X = 1 ˙ to become

+ (1−X) ρL The average specific volume of the flow is then
X ρG

ρaverage =



vaverage =

1 ρaverage


X (1 − X) + = X vG + (1 − X) vL ρG ρL


The relationship between X and α is


mG ˙ ρG UG A α ρG UG α = = (9.20) mG + mL ˙ ˙ ρL UL A(1 − α) +ρG UG A α ρL UL (1 − α) + ρG UG α

If the slip is one SLP = 1, thus equation (9.20) becomes X= ρG α ρL (1 − α) + ρG α (9.21)

Additional increase in the fluid velocity causes large turbulence and the ordinary domes are replaced by churn type flow or large bubbles that are almost empty of the solid particles. then the actual velocity that every particle experience depends on the void fraction.

The flow is fully fluidized for any liquid flow rate.9. In the gas phase. Thus. However. it must be pointed out that even in solid–gas. The forces that act on the spherical particle are the buoyancy force and drag force. the speed of sound is reduced dramatically with increase of the solid particles concentration (further reading Fundamentals of Compressible Flow” chapter on Fanno Flow by this author is recommended).8. Nevertheless.280 CHAPTER 9. One of the main difference between the liquid and gas flow in this category is the speed of sound.

the heavy phase (liquid) is pushed by the gravity and lighter phase (gas) is driven by the pressure difference. The affective body force “seems” by the particles can be in some cases larger than the gravity. the possibility to have counter–current flow is limited to having short length of tubes. Thus. This kind of flow is probably the most common to be realized by the masses. Hence. the or Dripping Flow pressure difference in one phase can be f (D/L. for Pulse Flow Inpossible long tubes. opening a can of milk or juice. the pressure difference and Open Channel gravity (body forces) dominates the flow. The pressure difference in the interface must Fig. for example. In only certain configurations of the infinite long pipes the counter–current flow can exist. However. The two phase regimes “occurs” mainly in entrance to the cavity.54. be finite. Further increase of the liquid velocity appear as somewhat similar to slug flow. However.9. for a small fluid velocity the velocity ratio is very large. For example. Most people know that two holes are needed to empty the can easily and continuously. The solid–liquid horizontal flow has some similarity to horizontal gas–liquid flow. Typically if only one hole is opened on the top of the can. COUNTER–CURRENT FLOW and drag force are reducing the speed as 2 281 π D3 g(ρS − ρL ) CD ∞ π D2 ρL (US − UL ) = (9. But in most cases. for large velocity of the fluid it can be observed that UL /US → 1. when cavity is filled or emptied with a liquid. When the liquid velocity increase and became turbulent. the liquid will flow in pulse regime. Annular Extented Flow In that case.9. Initially the solid particles will be carried by the liquid to the top. The flow regimes will be similar but the transition will be in different points. -9. 9.

UL /US → 0.10. the counter–current flow can have opposite pressure gradient for short conduit. In short tube. cannot compensate for the Flow pressure gradient. some of the particles enter into the liquid core.9 Counter–Current Flow This discussion will be only on liquid–liquid systems (which also includes liquid-gas systems). Otherwise. Liquid Body Foreces . The counter-current flow occurs.54) 6 8 From equation 9. the flow will be in a pulse regime. In most cases. it can observed that increase of the liquid velocity will increase the solid particle velocity at the same amount.

The first flow pattern is pulse flow regime.11 depicts emptying of can filled with liquid.12. There must be other flow regimes that were not observed or defined. or small wood particles) by rotating the container.11. the phases flow turns into different direction (see Figure 9. -9. the pressure in the can increase. the liquid will stay in the cavity (neglecting other phenomena such as dripping flow. It also can be noticed that if there is one hole (orifice) and a long and narrow tube. -9. Figure 9. Then the pressure in the can is reduced compared to the outside and some lighter liquid (gas)entered into the can. This field hasn’t been well explored. There are more things to be examined and to be studied.12). The air is “attempting” to enter the cavity to fill the vacuum created thus forcing pulse flow. Fig. Counter–current flow in a can (the left figure) has only one hole thus pulse flow and a flow with two holes (right picture). 10 Caution! this statement should be considered as “so far found”. liquid flows through one hole and the air through the second hole and the flow will be continuous. water solution. Picture of Counter-current flow in liquid–gas and solid–gas configurations. in some cases.). Even though the solid–gas ratio is smaller. it can be noticed that the solid–gas is faster than the liquid–gas flow. Then. This is opposed to counter–current solid–gas flow when almost no pulse was observed.282 CHAPTER 9. The container is made of two compartments. The name pulse flow is used to signify that the flow is flowing in pulses that occurs in a certain frequency. If there are two holes. There are three flow regimes10 that have been observed. MULTI–PHASE FLOW Fig. For example. The upper compartment is filled with the heavy phase (liquid. In this flow regime.

Annular Flow in Counter–current flow The other flow regime is annular flow in which the heavier phase is on the periphery of Water the conduit (In the literature. Example of such flow in the nature is water falls in which water flows down and air (wind) flows up. flow with gravity or against it. . This process continue until almost the liquid is evacuated (some liquid stay due the surface tension). In very small Steam Flow diameters of tubes the counter–current flow is not possible because of the surface tension (see section 4. one or more of the assumptions that the analysis based is erroneous). Additional increase of the diameter will change the flow regime into extended open channel flow. As opposed to the co–current flow. Extended open channel flow retains the characteristic of open channel that the lighter liquid (almost) does not effect the heavier liquid flow. -9.7) page 133) it can be considered stable for small diameters.9. The analysis is provided. Consider the can in zero gravity field. the flow regime in the can moves from pulse to annular flow. Probably. The driving force is the second parameter which effects the flow existence. When the driving (body) force is very small. In many situations. the volume flow rate of the two phase is almost equal. 9. Further increase of the body force will move the flow to be in the extended “open channel flow. Thus it should be considered as non existent flow. there is an additional flow regime which is stratified .9.7).1 Horizontal Counter–Current Flow Up to this point. The duration the cycle depends on several factors. The heavy liquid will flow with the body forces (gravity).9. At this point. This situation is unstable for large diameter but as in static (see section (4. However. Horizontal flow is different from vertical flow from the stability issues. no counter–current flow is possible. the counter–current flow has no possibility for these two cases. but somehow it contradicts with the experimental evidence.13. COUNTER–CURRENT FLOW 283 and some heavy liquid will starts to flow. the discussion was focused on the vertical tubes. The ratio of the diameter to the Fig. A flow in a very narrow tube with heavy fluid above the lighter fluid should be considered as a separate issue. no counter–current flow possible.” In the vertical co–current flow there are two possibilities. The analysis of the frequency is much more complex issue and will not be dealt here. The cycle duration can be replaced by frequency. In horizontal tubes. Flood in vertical pipe. if the can was on the sun (ignoring the heat transfer issue). length with some combinations of the physical properties (surface tension etc) determines the point where the counter flow can start. A heavier liquid layer can flow above a lighter liquid.

A flow in an angle of inclination is closer to verti. the flow will be stratified counter–current flow. In some situations. The flow will change to pulse flow when the heavy liquid flow rate increases. .13. To analyze this situation consider a two dimensional conduit with a liquid inserted in the left side as depicted in Figure 9. Thus. this increase terminates the two phase flow possibility.

Additional increase of the gas velocity will bring it to a point where the liquid will flow in a reverse direction and/or disappear (dried out). both conditions cannot flood in a two dimension geometry. the fire could melt or damage the boiler.

The underline rational for this assumption is that gas density does not change significantly for short pipes (for more information look for the book “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow” in Potto book series in the Fanno flow chapter.9.

The solution of elliptic equations depends on the boundary conditions The solution of parabolic equations depends on the boundary conditions but as well on the initial conditions. The nature of the solution is based whether the equation is elliptic parabolic and hyperbolic. The hyperbolic equations are associated with method of characteristics because physical situations depends only on the initial conditions. the same can be done for a second-order PDE. sometimes similar definition can be applied for other order. The physical meaning of the these definition is that these equations have different characterizations. this characterization is done for for second order.8 A general Form of the Homogeneous Equation dn u dn−1 u du + k1 tn−1 n−1 + · · · + kn−1 t + kn u = a x dtn dt dt The homogeneous equation can be generalized to k0 tn (A.110) To be continue A. ayy might depend upon ”x” and ”y”.
