More effort has been made to reach a balance between exact and clear presentation. When a concept evolves from a previous one. It is believed that an important objective of engineering education is to induce the students to think in clear and exact terms. In places where this delicate balance cannot be achieved. the connection is shown. there may be programs of study in which certain parts of this book may be skipped. Care has been taken in this book to strictly observe the chain of logic. but the students who use this book are expected to have had two years of engineering education which include mathematics. physics. engineering mechanics and thermodynamics. e. As related later.PREFACE This textbook is intended to be read by undergraduate students enrolled in engineering or engineering science curricula who wish to study fluid mechanics on an intermediate level. to make them understand the basic principles of the subject. while at the same time to keep the mathematics under control such that the student's attention is not drawn away from the physics. the reason for it is clearly stated. from a pedagogical point of view it is important that these skipped parts are there and that the student feels that he or she has a complete presentation even though it is not required to read some particular section.. intuitive grasp of new ideas and creative application of these concepts. and the student is told that some of that material has to be further considered in more advanced courses. This book has been written with the intention to direct the readers to think in clear and correct terms of fluid mechanics. to induce them to develop some intuitive grasp of flow phenomena and to show them some of the beauty of the subject. No previous knowledge of fluid mechanics is assumed. and when a new start is made. However. XI . as where the turbulent boundary layer equations are derived anew. the physics prevails. Some of this balance is achieved by following the new concepts.g. In writing this book extreme effort has been made to present fluid mechanics in an exact manner.

with several examples solved. by examples of their applications. To aid in this decision. One reason for this is that the mathematics of frictionless flows is substantially simpler than that of viscous flow and that a fluid at rest really behaves like this. Also. and frictionless models in solid mechanics are in many cases fairly good approximations to reality. It then shows that under certain particular conditions the ideal fluid models may yield acceptable approximations. By then. A major objective of this book is to develop understanding and with it some intuitive grasp of . This book starts with the real viscous fluid. Moreover. Although the textbook has enough material for a two-semester course. Hence. Students who read fluid mechanics for the first time may wonder why this subject seems sometimes more formal and less intuitive than solid mechanics. fluid statics had been known long before all other branches of fluid mechanics. frictionless fluid. the student has a sufficient background and can place the ideal fluid model in its proper perspective. however. This can be achieved by first studying the mechanics of real viscous fluids and then considering simpler models which are special cases of the real fluid. it is understood that in most schools the realities brought about by the multitude of subjects in a modern engineering curriculum will limit the time allowed for fluid mechanics to a course of one semester. They are advised that most probably the encounter with fluids throughout their formal education is less extensive than the encounter with solids. Another reason is that the development of solid mechanics has preceded that of the mechanics of fluids. while still providing a coherent structure on which the interested student may in the future fill in the gaps and expand his or her knowledge of the subject. such that the new concept is reviewed from a less formal point of view. some of the advanced topics that can be skipped in a basic exposition of the subject were marked with an asterisk. The boundary layer concept is introduced as a necessary companion to ideal fluid flow. in most cases these approximations may be later improved by the introduction of corrections and by modifications of coefficients. One-dimensional compressible flow takes its place as both fast and compressible. An introduction to non-Newtonian flows is presented. The simplification resulting from the use of frictionless models should at best be applied by users who fully understand the limitations of the frictionless model. the instructor is faced with the decision of which parts of the book to exclude from the syllabus. The unqualified introduction of frictionless models in fluid mechanics may yield results which are totally wrong. These topics are included in the book for the sake of completeness as well as for a comprehensive treatment of the subject in the framework of a more advanced course. Slow flows are also treated as another extreme case of the general real fluid flow.XII Preface wherever possible. Fluid mechanics has historically developed around the concept of an ideal.

with properties which have to be understood in a certain manner. Fluid mechanics has to deal with the mechanics of bodies that continuously change their shape. The beginner in the study of fluid mechanics may have some intuitive notion as to the nature of a fluid. INTRODUCTION The Field of Fluid Mechanics Fluid mechanics extends the ideas developed in mechanics and thermodynamics to the study of motion and equilibrium of fluids. or deform. and let S be a thermodynamic system which contains A. Let A be a representative point in the fluid. 1.1. the ideas developed in classical equilibrium thermodynamics have to be extended to allow for the additional complexity of properties which vary continuously with space and time. We. a notion that centers around the idea of a fluid not having a fixed shape. begin with the explanation of what a continuum is and how local properties are defined. namely of liquids and gases. as shown in Fig. The average density of the system S is defined as . neither the idea of a continuum nor that of a fluid have been properly defined. We then describe the various forces that act in a continuum leading to the definition of the concept of stress at a point. This idea indicates at once that the field of fluid mechanics is more complex than that of solid mechanics. The Continuum Consider a body of fluid. normally encountered in fluid mechanics.1. Similarly. Fluid mechanics bases its description of a fluid on the concept of a continuum. therefore. Let the volume of S be V and let the mass contained in it be m. The concepts of stress and continuum are then used to define a fluid. So far.

Thus a fluid may be considered a continuum in parts of the region or part of the time only.. ... i. „ . all properties of interest in the considered problem.e.e. These are outside the scope of the book.g.. ..1 Point A in a fluid. . When the continuum model breaks down. those used in statistical mechanics or statistical thermodynamics. A fluid which is a continuum with respect to all relevant properties. yet the density at each point in it is well defined. „. Furthermore. in examples where regions smaller than Veare of interest.g. . and then for another point. (1. A fluid in a region which contains only points for which convergence occurs. in which the density is defined everywhere. e. i.id PA is defined as the density at point-A.. The size of the "sufficiently small" Ve must contain at least such a number of molecules that guarantees acceptable deviations from the equilibrium distributions of their velocities.ffl. A thermodynamic system defined inside such a region need not be in equilibrium..e. It is noted that the continuum model may have to be abandoned in cases where very fine details of the flow are required. is denoted a continuum with respect to density.2) ^ BoJy. . Figure 1.. It should be noted that the existence of „. i. .Fluid Mechanics 0-1) We now proceed to shrink V around A. Indeed VE —> 0 is not considered at all. The requirements to be a continuum may be satisfied in one region but not in another or at one moment and not at another.2) is by no means assured. a continuum with respect to temperature. . These considerations may be repeated for another point B. A fluid can also satisfy the requirement of being a continuum with respect to other fluid properties. because for a very small Ve the loss of single molecules while further decreasing VE may cause large fluctuations in p. shall be denoted a continuum with no further qualifications. e. and so on. the limit pA must be approached for a finite Ve. resulting in pB. .. the limit in Eq.. v Ve Local Properties in a Continuum The mental experiment which has led to the concepts of density and continuum with respect to density can be adjusted to yield some other properties. If for a sufficiently small volume Ve containing A there exists a limit such that lim p = p A> (1. some other models may become appropriate. The flow of a rarefied gas is a typical example of such a case.

instead of the previous discrete/? values. thermodynamic pressure. Between two adjacent points of specification in that particular division.1. Introduction 3 such as temperature. The decision of what must be measured in these mental experiments is not always simple and is not necessarily unique. By considering this function as p. The same. The continuous p function has. What has been done so far is the establishment of a basis for translating physical reality into a form which is amenable to mathematical treatment. we consider regions of matter as continua of properties that change in a fairly smooth way. holds for other measurable properties. however. while describing a velocity profile of a gas flowing in a pipe. At a point where p is specified. The emphasis. the function interpolates between the two values and. Similarly. Hence. this function coincides with its value. of course. . Denote the considered property. does not change the approximation. Let a continuous function be defined such that for some reasonable subdivision of the region its values coincide with the values of p in the subregions. Properties which cannot be measured directly. which proves invaluable in what follows. etc. temperature can be defined as a result of a limiting process and with it the continuum with respect to temperature. the density. by changing somewhat the considered model now. well-behaved mathematical function. Let this continuous function also have continuous partial derivatives up to some order to be specified as needed. which does not increase accuracy but is more amenable to analysis. What follows is an elaboration. but rather are calculated using other properties. The part lost in this translation process is the molecular structure of matter. With this understanding a continuum is now considered to have all its relevant properties defined everywhere. We may talk about density and temperature fields or velocity profiles. no error is introduced. A local property in a continuum is henceforth considered as the local value of this continuous function. A somewhat picturesque description of what has been achieved up to this point is that of the fluid being divided into many small subregions. the advantage of having derivatives and being integrable. is on the realization that such an experiment can be performed and that the concept of. In describing the density of a continuum we disregard the fact that matter is composed of very dense protons and neutrons surrounded by regions of zero density. fewer difficulties arise later in the analysis. The definition of such a function does not add information but rather smoothes out the description. therefore. by p. This description is indeed correct. This p is known in any subregion of the continuum. say. each of the order of Ve in size and each having a list of its properties. are assumed to be here defined only after the measurable properties have been defined. say. however. Hence. we disregard the velocity of any given molecule and treat the velocity profile of the continuum as a continuous.

. r what similar to those leading to the definition of the concept of the local properties. therefore. in the fluid at point A. electrostatics and electromagnetism. This is more complex than a single body force acting on a mass element.Fluid Mechanics Body and Surface Forces Forces acting on a fluid divide naturally into body forces and surface forces. The considerations here are someFigure 1. This limit is called the stress at point A. This disk has two sides. which depends not only on the location of point A but also on the direction of the unit normal n. Because each point in the fluid may belong to several surfaces. 1. several such surface forces seem to coexist at the point.e. Surface forces are viewed as acting on any surface defined in the fluid. force per unit surface area V* We now shrink S around A and look for a limit of the average stress. Henceforth. which lies in the plane of the disk and is. The component of the stress in the direction of this normal n is called normal stress and the component perpendicular to n.2. and therefore surface forces deserve some more elaborate consideration. The limit in Eq.. . Let a plane tangent to the surface pass also through A and a small disk be drawn on this plane. one of which is assigned to the outer normal n. Let the area of the disk be S and the force acting on its n surface be F.. . Body forces act at a distance and need not be associated with any transmission agent.. (1. . . Some typical examples of body forces are those of gravity. The average stress acting on the surface is now defined as the j. is called tangential stress or shear stress.2 A small disk tangent to a surface . ^ . In many cases they are the "effects" of external fields. the term stress is used as a short form for stress at a point. or point of contact. . i. The stress is a vector which depends on another vector n. . . tangent to the considered surface. including its boundaries. Stress at a Point Let a surface passing through point A in a fluid be defined. as shown in Fig. . .3) is a vector.

The temperature in the water changes from T = 20° C at the top to T = 10°C at the bottom of the container. p . Introduction Intuitively. The forces acting on the water are body forces and surface forces. is moving to the right with a constant velocity of 17 = 6 m/s. we do not expect it to be discontinuous. therefore. still. the normal stress may be considered as that tending to pull the disk away from the surface while the shear stress is the one that tends to shear the disk off the surface while sliding on it tangentially. Is the water a continuum with respect to density? With respect to temperature? What are the forces acting on the water? What are the stresses in the water? Solution The water is homogeneous and it is a continuum with respect to density. Although the water temperature does change from top to bottom. The pressure in the water changes continuously from p0 at the top surface.3 A body of water in a moving container. and its direction is that of the vector g. i.

Its density.e. in the (-k)-direction. as shown in Fig. hence the water is a continuum with respect to temperature too.

Consider an experiment designed to use this definition to decide whether a given material is a fluid. Definition of a Fluid We are now in a position to introduce the definition of a fluid. which is thin and long. Fig. The terms continuum and shear stress which appear here make it obvious why this definition had to wait until now. 1. but the sinking takes many hours. Sn. It sinks to the bottom.2 A cylindrical rod is left on the surface of still water in a tank.gdm = -VgpdV The surface force S acting on any plane in the water is due to the normal stress. it is the shear stresses on its circumference which resist the sinking. where the shear force is applied by means of a weight. Example 1. An example of such an experiment is shown in Fig.4.Fluid Mechanics dG . The experiment is repeated with tar instead of water. Is water a fluid? Is tar? .5. as explained in the next chapter. The same results are obtained. A fluid should not be able to support any shear stress while at rest. Let the material be placed between two parallel plates and be subjected to an external shearing stress. no matter how small. A fluid is defined as a continuum which cannot support a shear stress while at rest. top plate t\faterial sample attached to top and bottom plates Figure 1. Neglecting forces at the bottom of the rod. There are no shear stresses in this body of fluid. The material will be considered a fluid if the top plate moves to the right as long as a shear stress is applied.4 Material subjected to shear stress. 1.

Introduction Solution The water is a fluid. e. The decision concerning the tar depends on what the observer considers "at rest. fluid mechanics considerations must be used and the tar must be considered a fluid." Thus a vector is given by its three components. Because no matter what units are used to report the length of the pole. cannot be completely formulated by the use of pure numbers. Similarly. dimensions and basic units must be employed. Therefore. and a model of a solid fits better its behavior. the pure numbers describe quantities. "how much. The point of view underlying these transformations is that all observers must see the same physical phenomena.. However." With this in mind unit vectors are also identified as modifiers.e. It cannot support shear stresses while at rest.the physical dimensions of the vector. We now return to the 10-foot pole and find what was involved in turning it .. which tell us "in what direction.e." If the whole situation is of interest only for a few seconds. if one "wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole" he or she would not touch it with a 3. the tar is approximately at rest. i. Transformations between different systems of units as well as between different systems of coordinates are possible. a vector viewed in different coordinate systems remains the same. what it represents. The dimensions are considered modifiers for the pure numbers.048-meter pole either. The observers may choose their own means (units. for longer periods. as many other branches of science and engineering. coordinate systems) of reporting what they see.g. i. which are pure numbers." while the dimensions tell us "of what.

In principle the description of a vector in various coordinate systems. Conversion factors similar to that of Eq.4) results in the length of the pole in meters: / = 10 ft x 0.3 A small economy car runs 12 km per liter of gasoline. Example 1.

A dimensionally homogeneous equation has. the same dimensions for each term on both sides of the equation. this means that the numerical constants appearing in the equation are dimensionless. we substitute in Eq. where the term "psia" stands for pounds force per square inch absolute. A common practice in engineering is to write equations in a nonhomogeneous form.174 ft/s 2 . Introduction 9 Dimensional Homogeneity An equation is said to be dimensionally homogeneous if it does not depend on the system of units used. Here the constant 16.e.11) As demonstrated by this example.10) resulting in a new dimensionally nonhomogeneous equation h = 4. is nonhomogeneous and holds only for the case where t is given in seconds and h in feet.

However. A fluid whose density may be assumed not to vary with pressure is called incompressible.000 kg/m3 = 1 g/cm3 = 62.300 N/m2 = 101. The density may depend on both the pressure and the temperature. defined as the weight per unit volume. Hence. Hence.14) A quantity related to the density is the specific weight.300 Pa.

Specific Weight and Specific Gravity The property density was used in the discussion of the concept of a continuum. Other units frequently used for density are g/cm3. The reciprocal of the density is the specific volume. in SI units density is measured in kilograms per cubic meter (kg/m3).

.e. FLUIDS IN MOTION . There exist. such that while the individual fluid particles still elude identification. also vary from point to point in the field. and while doing so its location is better kept under control. quite a few cases where there are sufficient restrictions on the flow field.g. there are walls impermeable to the fluid. 97 . e. We then present the Reynolds transport theorem and apply it to obtain integral relations of conservation of mass and Newton's second law of motion for a control volume. equations that describe what takes place at each point at all times.. This approach is known as integral analysis. In most cases one tries to avoid the need for such an identification and presents the phenomena in some field equations. i. In most cases where integral representation is possible. When this is the case. some useful engineering results may be obtained by integrating the relevant properties over the appropriate chunk. much more difficult than the identification of a solid body or of a fluid particle in a static fluid. We begin this chapter with the definition of a control volume and with relations between thermodynamic systems and control volumes. The problem of identification of a fluid particle in a moving fluid is. however. We call the volume enclosed by these walls a control volume. There are cases where such an identification of a particle is made. which is called the Eulerian approach. is the subject of the next chapter. The moving fluid which cannot pass through these walls must flow along them.4. the analysis of these properties may become quite elaborate. This differential analysis. its velocity. whole chunks of fluid can be identified.INTEGRAL ANALYSIS Moving fluids are subject to the same laws of physics as are moving rigid bodies or fluids at rest. When the fluid properties. and then this particle is followed and the change of its properties is investigated. This is known as the Lagrangian approach. however.

In a moving fluid such a thermodynamic system will. At the time t it occupies the volume V. and for B identified with. All three laws are formulated for a thermodynamic system which is classically defined as a specified amount of matter with well-defined boundaries. in general. but as long as they remain well defined. This control volume formulation is done by the application of the Reynolds transport theorem.98 Fluid Mechanics Thermodynamic Systems and Control Volumes A very useful concept in integral analysis is that of the control volume. and therefore its rate of change in time vanishes. say a steel ball.1. Newton's second law demands that the rate of change in time of this component equals the xcomponent of the resultant force acting on the system. say. 4. and the first law of thermodynamics. the enclosure may still serve as a control volume. then B = \pbdV. The walls may deform and the openings may change dimensions. the x-component of the total momentum of the system. Had our system been a rigid body. i. in terms convenient to apply for control volumes. which states what takes place when a thermodynamic system moves through a control volume. It is the choice of a proper control volume which determines whether a particular problem can be treated successfully by integral methods. We note that B belongs to the system and that the system may change its location and its shape in time. which consists of an enclosure with well-defined impermeable walls and well-defined openings. Newton's second law of motion. Let B be some general extensive property of the thermodynamic system inside the volume V and let b be its specific value. continuously change its location and shape and will be hard to follow. for mass and momentum. the value of B per unit mass. that is. v (4. the notation dB/dt might have sufficed because it would be clear that we talked about the steel ball. The control volume may move in space and may even accelerate. Fig. The object of the general considerations presented here is to reformulate two of the three laws mentioned above. The three physical laws most important in fluid mechanics are conservation of mass.e. for a fluid system it is useful to emphasize that the . However.1) The theorem deals with the rate of change of B with time.. Reynolds Transport Theorem Let a thermodynamic system be chosen inside the fluid. We are interested in this because for conservation of mass B is identified with the total mass of the thermodynamic system.

conservation of mass states that a given system cannot change its mass.1.1). These changes are not arbitrary. System at t+At System at t Figure 4. which has the extensive property B as defined by Eq. depends on time because the considered thermodynamic system changes its location and its shape. (4.

Referring to Fig. Thus the total change in the property B of the system that originally occupied regions A + A' is due to the time change of B inside A plus the flux of part of the system with its property B into region A" minus the flux that has left region A'.(t At^o f lim + At)-BA. it is noted that the volumetric flow rate of fluid.(t + /U->o At At)-BA(t)-BA.(t) At dB dt ^ The first term on the right-hand side of Eq.1. of course. but the specific property b in it may be different because b depends also on time. expresses the contribution due to the flow of the fluid. Since our considerations are for the limit of vanishing At. We look now for the rate of change of B. In Fig. while a negative q n denotes inflow..4) gives the change of B at constant position.e.(4.

The modified pressure, P, defined by Eq. (6.13), is most useful in hydrodynamics. In a fluid at rest the modified pressure is constant throughout, and a variation in P indicates that the fluid is moving. However, the use of this modified
pressure is limited to cases in which p is constant and the absolute pressure p
does not affect the boundary conditions. Thus, it may be used in any internal flow

Elimination of g from the equations makes the solutions independent of the
orientation of gravity. Thus the solution for a vertical tube is the same as for a
horizontal tube provided both flows are subject to the same modified pressure
gradient, VP.
Returning to our problem, we note from Eq. (6.16) that P does not depend

Solution
Let point 4 have the height zero. Then
P 4 = p 4 = 130,000 Pa.
To have the same flowrate, the modified pressure must have the same gradient as
in Example 6.1. Therefore
P5 = PA + 2,500 x 4 = 140,000 Pa,
P6 = P5 +10,000 = 150,000 Pa.

Example 6.5
The viscosity of glycerin at 10°C is /j. =2Ns/m 2 . A gap of 0.05 m between
two plates is filled with glycerin. One plate is at rest and the other moves in the
^-direction with the velocity U = 2 m/s. Because of an adverse pressure gradient,
there is no net flow in the gap (see Fig. 6.3d). Find the pressure gradient.
Solution
The equation which governs this flow, Eq. (6.21), is linear, and therefore

Time-dependent Flow - The Rayleigh Problem
Let us now return to Eq. (6.15) but consider flows for which dP/dx vanishes.
Equation (6.15) now assumes the form

Consider an infinite flat plate with an infinite domain of fluid on its upper
side, Fig. 6.4. The fluid and the plate are at rest. At the time t = 0 the plate is
impulsively set into motion with the velocity U and continues to move at that
speed. Thus the initial condition and the boundary conditions are, respectively,

u(y,0) = 0,
u(O,t) = U,

for

t>0.

This is known as the Rayleigh Problem, and again a solution is sought, in which
v = 0 everywhere and u satisfies Eqs. (6.27) and (6.28).

To obtain this solution, we try to find a new independent variable r\ in the

Obviously, for a given rj, u is uniquely determined. However, there are infinite
pairs of y and / which give the same r\ - all those satisfying l = y/(zJvt). The
same u is thus obtained for all points on the y/[2-\fvt) = const curve in the y-t
plane. In this sense all these points are similar, and hence the term similarity solution.

is vM,=10"6 m 2 /s. A large plate immersed in water is suddenly set into motion at
U=5 m/s, and the resulting flow is similar to that of the Rayleigh problem.
How long will it take a water layer 1 m away from the plate to reach the
velocity of 2 m/s? Repeat for 3 m away and for air.

One may try then to drop the smaller terms and to solve the truncated equation. the equations are written in their dimensionless form. experiments are not practical and approximate methods must be used. there are many varieties of flows that a fluid dynamicist is compelled to consider. A way to affect an approximate solution is to identify in the equations some terms which are quite smaller than the other terms...

Stokes Flow around a Cylinder
Figure 9.7 shows a stationary cylinder set in a two-dimensional parallel flow.
The radius of the cylinder is a and its center is chosen to coincide with the origin
of the coordinate system. This flow seems to be the two-dimensional analog of
the flow around a sphere, and we want to find out whether indeed this is the
case.

The convenient coordinate system to describe this flow is the cylindrical
one. The relations between velocity and stream function are given by Eq. (5.58):

In a way similar to the treatment of the flow around the sphere, Eq. (9.53)

One might try to proceed here along the way which proved successful for
the flow around the sphere, i.e., by applying the boundary conditions Eqs. (9.53)
at r -» °° to Eq. (9.55). This would result in A = 0, B = 0, C - U^ , and only a
single constant, i.e., D, is left to satisfy both boundary conditions at the surface of
the cylinder. Indeed, application of Eqs. (9.52) results in the two contradictory
equations:
r\

D =a

and

D = —a .

Thus no solution is obtained.
This result is known as the Stokes Paradox. Similar mathematical difficulties
do occur in some other two-dimensional problems of mathematical physics where
boundary conditions at infinity are imposed, e.g., in the solution for the temperature field outside a given isothermal cylinder. Once it is recognized that the paradox is associated with the combination of two-dimensionality and of boundary
conditions at infinity, a way is indicated to still solve for the flow field:
There is nothing one can do about the two-dimensionality of the cylinder. If
this is modified, one does not solve the given problem. But then the boundary
conditions, Eqs. (9.53), may be satisfied at a large r, say at r = b < °°, instead of at
infinity. This approach would permit the completion of the solution. The details
are presented in the following example.

conditions, Eq. (9.53), satisfied at a finite R, i.e., at r = /?,=»>/?> a. Find expressions for the velocities.
Solution
It is helpful to rewrite the general solution, Eq. (9.55), and the boundary
conditions, Eqs. (9.48) and (9.53), in dimensionless forms, using a as the characteristic length and U^ as the characteristic velocity. The dimensionless equations
become

satisfied:
a. At a distance of 1 m from the cylinder's center, i.e., at r = R = 100.
b. At a distance of 2 m, i.e., at r = R - 200.
Solution
The dimensionless radius, r, is measured here in units of a (see Example 9.4),
which happens to be 1 cm. Accordingly, in part a, R = 100, and in part b, R = 200.

It is instructive to note that although R = 100 and R - 200 both seem to be
very far from the cylinder, the differences obtained between the two flows are
quite significant. Thus one is advised to choose an R, i.e., to satisfy the boundary
conditions, as close to the real physical situation as possible.

which completes the proof.
To describe what happens in rotational flows which satisfy Euler's equation, we need a new concept, that of the vortex lines. Let vortex lines be defined
as the field lines of the vectorial field V x q, i.e., as curves that are everywhere
tangent to £=Vx q. We now consider a vortex tube, Fig. 10.7, i.e., a surface that
consists of vortex lines and encloses a tube within. Let three curves be chosen on
this surface, one which is not linked with the tube, C, and two which are linked
with it, A and B. Now the Helmholtz theorem states:

10. High Re Flows - Regions far from Solid Boundaries

313

The circulation along a curve lying on the surface of a vortex tube and not
linked with the tube is zero and remains so. The circulation along all
curves lying on the surface of a vortex tube and linked with it is the same
and remains constant in time.
The proof of the Helmholtz theorem is as follows:
For curve C:

Fluid Mechanics

Thus while the fluid particles move according to the velocity field, those
lying on the surfaces of vortex tubes remain on those surfaces, and as they move,
they take with them the tubes. Denoting the integral over the tube cross section,
J^-ii dA, the intensity of the tube, this intensity persists in time. Furthermore, a
vortex tube cannot start or end in the fluid. It must either be linked into itself in a
toroid shape or start and end at surfaces of discontinuity, such as rigid walls or
free surfaces.
Armed with Kelvin and Helmholtz theorems we now proceed to consider
irrotational solutions to Euler's equation, and for simplicity we assume these
barotropic flows to be also incompressible.

Potential Flow
When V x q = 0, i.e., when the flow is irrotational, there always exists a function <j) such that
q = V0,

(10.27)

where 0 is called the velocity potential and the flow is known as potential flow.
Irrotational flow is thus also potential flow. The equation of continuity for incompressible flows is V-q=0. Hence
V20 = O.

(10.28)

The velocity potential is a harmonic function and can be obtained by the solution
of the Laplace equation (10.28). A proper set of boundary conditions must
guarantee no normal flow relative to rigid surfaces. It is noted that the solution of
Eq. (10.28) is really a direct integration of the equation of continuity, while the
Euler equation is implicitly satisfied by irrotationality. Euler's equation is still used
through the Bernoulli equation to evaluate the pressure. The momentum and
continuity equations thus become uncoupled. Since the continuity equation is
linear, as is Eq. (10.28), superposition of solutions is permissible, and elaborate
flows may be constructed by superpositions of simpler ones. It is noted, however,
that Euler's equation is not linear, and neither is Bernoulli's equation. Therefore
the pressure in a flow obtained by superposition of two flows is not the sum of
the pressures of the two partial flows.
We now consider two-dimensional flows. Equation (10.27) states

The family of <f> = const lines and that of y/ = const lines intersect orthogonally. This is easily shown by noting that

Example 10.3 - Source Flow
Consider a steady two-dimensional axisymmetrical flow from a line source.
Such a flow can be approximated by a radial flow emitted through the wall of a
long slender tube made of porous material. The tube lies along the z-axis and the
fluid flows radially in the x-y plane. Let Q be the fluid flow rate per unit length of
tube. This flowrate is called the intensity of the line source. Continuity yields the
fluid velocity,

The origin itself is a singular point, but everywhere else the flow is well defined.
A source with a reversed flow is a sink. Accordingly, for the flow into a sink
y/ = -CG,

0 = -Clnr,

(10.37)

where C=Q/2n.

Example 10.4 - Potential Vortex
In potential vortex flow the radial velocity component qr is zero and only qg
exists. The condition of irrotationality results in ^- 0. Hence, Eq. (10.7) requires

source flow, Fig. 10.8, shows
that (j) and y/ lines have simply
changed their roles. Indeed,
changing the roles of (j) and i//
lines in any potential flow
yields a new flow pattern.
The constant C in
Eq. (10.40) is related to the
circulation around the vortex,
as can be shown using

There is no contradiction between F ^ 0 and the irrotationality of this flow.
The circulation along any closed path not linked with the origin is still zero. The
singular point at the origin contributes the rvalue in Eq. (10.42), and the same F
is obtained along any contour linked with the origin.

Thus,

Since in potential flows any streamline may be interpreted as a rigid bound-

ary, the parallel flow may also be interpreted as a flow over a flat plate (say the
x-axis between x = -a andx = a) at zero angle of incidence; see Example 10.2.
Example 10.6 - Flat Plate Stagnation Flow
We now describe a flow perpendicular to a flat plate, Fig. 10.9. Far away from
the plate the flow is parallel to the x-axis.
Approaching the plate, the flow gradually
turns until it becomes parallel to it, as
required by the boundary conditions. This
gradual turn reminds us of a hyperbolic
arc, which we may try as a streamline. We
are also guided toward this choice by the
fact that an expression quadratic in x and
y may be amenable to satisfy the Laplace
equation. Trying
y/ = Cxy,

Substitution of m = 0 in Eq. (10.52) leads of course to <j> = 0, as the source and the
sink counteract and cancel each other. However, we may imagine a process by
which as m -> 0, <2->°°. We want Q to increase at such a rate that the limit obtained for (j) is well defined and finite. Thus,

This new flow potential, (j), describes a flow pattern known as doublet flow. Its
streamlines are still circles, and it has one singular point at the doublet itself, i.e., in
this example the origin.
Similarly, the coalescence of a source and a sink located on the y-axis leads
to a doublet with a potential dcf>a/dy. The results thus obtained could be expected,
at least in the sense that d(j)a/dx and d(f>a/dy yield new flow fields. If <j> satisfies the
Laplace equation, so do its derivatives provided the required higher partial
derivatives exist. We may also find that d2(j)a/dx dy leads to a new field describing
two coalescing doublets.

Flow in Pipes
The problems encountered in the use of the Moody diagram to compute
pipe flow are of two kinds:
1.
2.

The direct problem: given the mass flow in a pipe, what is the head loss?
The indirect problem: given the pressure drop, what is the flowrate?

The indirect problem is nonlinear. Most problems in water distribution
belong to the indirect class, where solutions are obtained by iterations and the
use of a computer.

Example 12.4
A cast iron pipe 15 cm in diameter was installed in a water system 15 years
ago. Experience indicated that this type of pipe will increase its wall roughness
with time according to the relation

where e0 = 25 x 10"5 m is the wall roughness of a new pipe and e is the roughness
after t years. A new pump is to be installed in the system which is capable of
delivering a maximum discharge of 0.03 m3/s of water at 27°C. Estimate the
pressure drop per meter of horizontal pipe at the maximum discharge.

Solution

The problem cannot be solved directly in the case of turbulent flow, since / as a

Flow through Pipe Fittings
Pipe fittings are such parts as connections, flow dividers, bends and elbows,
reducers, valves and many more, all of which have fluids flowing through them.
Pipes used to transfer fluids invariably involve pipe fittings, and the combination
of pipes and fittings is sometimes referred to as a piping network. The municipal
water supply in a city is an example of a piping network. In the previous section
we have considered friction losses in pipes. We now extend our treatment to the
contribution of the various fittings to the friction losses in the piping network.

374

Fluid Mechanics

Suppose we had only one type of fitting, say a 90° short bend, which we
use when we want to connect two pipes perpendicular to one another. We could
look for similarity conditions and find that in addition to similarity in geometry
there is one similarity parameter, the Reynolds number. Closer scrutiny shows that
surface roughness is also important and that a dimensionless roughness parameter
may be defined in exactly the same manner as in pipe flow. Armed with this
information we could perform experiments and sum up our results in a chart
somewhat like the Moody diagram. We could denote this diagram as the friction
loss chart for a 90° short bend.
We could now repeat the procedure for a 90° long bend, for a tee-shaped
flow divider, etc. Indeed under certain circumstances this elaborate treatment is
adopted. In general, however, one tries to avoid such a detailed investigation for
each and every fitting; there are very many fittings, and the amount of the
experimental work involved can become considerable.
Suppose we had obtained the friction loss diagram for a 90° short bend. The
friction coefficient is denoted by F, and by analogy to Eqs. (12.30) and (12.27),
the friction head loss may be expressed as
V2
hf=F—

F = F(Re.,e/D).

Simplification of treatment now depends on the behavior of F.
Some experimental data published in the literature show this F to be a
constant for each particular fitting, i.e., F = k,
V2

(12.34)

with k being referred to as a loss coefficient. A partial explanation for this
somewhat surprising simplification is that many fittings are designed for particular
forms of use, and the range of the Reynolds numbers at which they are used is
not large. In other words, the function F does not vary much over the range in
which its argument, Re, varies. Another possible explanation is that the losses
result from turbulent eddies which are activated by deceleration and draw their
energy at a rate proportional to the kinetic energy of the flow. In such cases the
loss coefficient k in Eq. (12.34) is simply the proportionality coefficient, and the
losses may be interpreted as a certain percentage of the kinetic energy. Some k
values are presented in Table 12.1.

The total friction losses of a fluid flowing through a pipe with fittings is
found by combining Eq. (12.30) with Eq. (12.34),

Another approach to an approximation relies on the speculation that
perhaps the F function, Eq. (12.33), may behave like the Moody friction factor/,
Eq. (12.27), in the form

F(Re, e/D) = Le- /(Re, e/D),
with Le = L/D, in which Le is a dimensionless equivalent length, expressed as an

Fluid Mechanics

equivalent number of pipe diameters, which is a constant. Experimental results
confirm this speculation for the 90° short bend and for many other pipe fittings,
with a constant Le value for each fitting. To compute friction losses under these
circumstances, the F function is obtained for a particular fitting by reading its Le
value from an appropriate table and multiplying it by the friction factor / read
from the Moody diagram for a pipe of the corresponding diameter. Thus the
friction head loss due to a fitting may be computed as
V2

(12.36)

and comparison with Eq. (12.30) suggests that Le may be indeed expressed as
Le-L/D, in which L is a dimensionless equivalent length, i.e., the losses associated with the fitting are the same as for a pipe of the same diameter and an
equivalent length expressed in a number of pipe diameters. Table 12.1 also lists
the equivalent lengths for some fittings. It should be noted that for some flow patterns the use of the loss coefficient k yields better approximations, while for other
patterns the Le approximation is better. When one approach is definitely better,
the table does not list the other parameter at all.

Solution We assume that the lift forces arise mainly from the wings. it comes out to be constant for a particular configuration. It is common practice to present the lift coefficient as a function of the angle of attack. Each angle of attack corresponds to a different flow field and therefore has a different lift coefficient. The highest lift per wing area is needed at takeoff because the air speed is then the lowest. The angle between the cord of a wing and the direction of the undisturbed flow is called the angle of attack. As long as the flow may be considered incompressible. p is the fluid density and V is the undisturbed flow velocity. and during flight the same wing may operate with various angles of attack. the characteristic area. of course.

and some additional information may be necessary to affect a solution.e. 12. Turbulence in the boundary layer is determined by the local Reynolds number. This means that velocity profiles believed to exist inside a turbulent boundary layer cannot be simply extended to the wall. The equations are still valid.14 Laminar and turbulent boundary layer on a flat plate... Turbulent cnl Figure 12. It is also noted that on rigid boundaries q = 0 and therefore q' must also subside. The velocity profile is thus rather flat in the main flow. i.8. This is a direct result of the ability of the turbulent profile to sustain high shear stress by Reynolds stresses.

The boundary layer equations were derived from the Navier—Stokes equations by singular perturbation and are therefore also valid for turbulent flows. Fig.000. hence the flow must always become laminar at the wall itself.= 500. because these are time dependent. for Reynolds numbers exceeding 500. at least within some thin sublayer. Another property typical to turbulent flow is the possibility of the appearance of boundary layers in fully developed or almost fully developed flows. Thus for sufficiently small x the flow in the boundary layer is laminar. For larger distances from the leading edge.14. where x is the distance from the leading edge. the flow in the boundary layer becomes turbulent. Fig.

However. Yet the nozzle can be made to discharge into a vessel where the pressure is controlled. Hence the exit is a "zone of silence" with respect to the diverging part of the nozzle.
