There are two main approaches of presenting an introduction of uid mechanics materials. The rst approach introduces the uid kinematic and then the basic governing equations, to be followed by stability, turbulence, boundary layer and internal and external ow. The second approach deals with the Integral Analysis to be followed with Dierential Analysis, and continue with Empirical Analysis. The need to have some understanding of uid mechanics started with the need to obtain water supply. For example, people realized that wells have to be dug and crude pumping devices need to be constructed. Later, a large population created a need to solve waste (sewage) and some basic understanding was created. At some point, people realized that water can be used to move things and provide power. The rst progress in uid mechanics was made by Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519) who built the rst chambered canal lock near Milan. He also made several attempts to study the ight (birds) and developed some concepts on the origin of the forces. After his initial work, the knowledge of uid mechanics (hydraulic) increasingly gained speed by the contributions of Galileo,Torricelli, Euler, Newton, Bernoulli family, and DAlembert. 1.2 KINDS OF FLUIDS The uid is mainly divided into two categories: liquids and gases. The main dierence between the liquids and gases state is that gas will occupy the whole volume while liquids has an almost x volume. 1.3 FLUID PROPERTIES The uids have many properties which are similar to solid. -The density - The Viscosity - Surface tension 1.4 Dimensions

2.1 NOTION OF PRESSURE a) Definition Pressure is the (compression) stress at a point in a static fluid. Next to velocity, the pressure p is the most dynamic variable in fluid mechanics. Differences or gradients in pressure often drive a fluid flow, especially in ducts.
P= F S

in Pascal (Pa)

p = 1atmosphere

= P gdz

dz = altitude difference


b) The Hydrostatic principle If the fluid is at rest or at constant velocity, the pressure distribution reduces to
PAB = gZ AB PB PA = .g ( Z B Z A ) = .g ( Z A Z B )

w = g

This is a hydrostatic distribution and is correct for all fluids at rest, regardless of their viscosity, because the viscous term vanishes identically.

2.2 BUOYANCY AND STABILITY One of the oldest known scientic research on uid mechanics relates to buoyancy due to question of money was carried by Archimedes. Archimedes principle is related to question of density and volume. This same principles used to compute hydrostatic forces on surfaces can be applied to the net pressure force on a completely submerged or floating body. The results are the two laws of buoyancy discovered by Archimedes in the third century B.C.:

A body immersed in a fluid experiences a vertical buoyant force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces. 1 2

A floating body displaces its own weight in the fluid in which it floats.

Archimedes theorem states that the force balance is at displaced weight liquid (of the same volume) should be the same as the container, the air. Thus,
F = gv

Where F is the Archimedes force

Review of Thermodynamics I- INTRODUCTION

In this chapter, a review of several denitions of common thermodynamics terms is presented. This introduction is provided to bring the student back to current place with the material.

II- Basic Denitions

The following basic denitions are common to thermodynamics and will be used in this lesson. a) Work In mechanics, the work was dened as: F = PS W=F.dl =PS.dl W= -P.dV mechanical work = This denition can be expanded to include two issues. The rst issue that must be addressed, that work done on the surroundings by the system boundaries similarly is positive. Two, there is a transfer of energy so that its eect can cause work. It must be noted that electrical current is a work while heat transfer isnt. b) System This term will be used in this lesson and it is dened as a continuous (at least partially) xed quantity of matter. In this denition, it is assumed that the system speed is signicantly lower than that of the speed of light. S.dl = dV

III- Thermodynamics First Law

This law refers to conservation of energy in a non accelerating system. Since all the systems can be calculated in a non accelerating system, the conservation is applied to all systems. The statement describing the law is the following:

b) Isochoric Process or isometric/isovolumetric process. It Occur at a constant Volume

dW = PdV W12 = PdV = 0 Because dV=0 (Constant 1


c) Isothermal process It occur at a constant temperature

dW = PdV PV = mrT P = dW = mrT mrT V

dV W12 = mrT T

IV The second law of thermodynamics - entropy The second law of thermodynamics, developed rigorously in many modem thermodynamic textbooks, enables the concept of entropy to be introduced and ideal thermodynamic processes to be defined. An important and useful corollary of the second law of thermodynamics, known as the Inequality of Clausius, states that for a system passing through a cycle involving heat exchanges,
