Flow Work (p/) :
It is the work required to move fluid across the control volume boundaries.
Consider a fluid element of cross-sectional area
A with pressure p acting on the control surface
as shown.

Due to the fluid pressure, the fluid element moves a distance x within

Very Important: Bernoullis equation is only valid for :
incompressible fluids, steady flow along a streamline, no energy loss due
to friction, no heat transfer.

## Minor Losses: Additional components (valves, bends, tees, contractions, etc) in

pipe flows also contribute to the total head loss of the system. Their contributions
are generally termed minor losses.

One of the example of minor losses is the entrance flow loss. A typical flow pattern
for flow entering a sharp-edged entrance is shown in the following page. A vena
contracta region is formed at the inlet because the fluid can not turn a sharp corner.
Flow separation and associated viscous effects will tend to decrease the flow energy;
the phenomenon is fairly complicated. To simplify the analysis, a head loss and the
associated loss coefficient are used in the extended Bernoullis equation to take into
consideration this effect as described in the next page.

## Energy Conservation (cont.)

Let us now also account for energy transfer via Heat Transfer, e.g.
in a heat exchanger
The most general form of conservation of energy for a system can be
written as:
dE = dQ-dW where
(Ch. 3, YAC)
dE Change in Total Energy, E
and E = U(internal energy)+Em(mechanical energy)
E = U + KE (kinetic energy) + PE(potential energy)
dW Work done by the system where
W = Wext(external work) + Wflow(flow work)

(Ch. 1 YAC)

mechanical
energy

## dQ = Heat transfer into the system (via conduction, convection &

Convention: dQ > 0 net heat transfer into the system (Symbols Q,q..)
dW > 0, positive work done by the system
Q: What is Internal Energy ?

## Energy Conservation (cont.)

U = mu, u(internal energy per unit mass),
KE = (1/2)mV2 and PE = mgz
Flow work Wflow= m (p/)
It is common practice to combine the total energy with flow work.
Thus:

## Energy flow rate: m(u +

The difference between energy in and out is due to heat transfer (into or out)
and work done (by or on) the system.

## Energy Conservation (cont.)

Hence, a system exchanges energy with the environment due to:
1) Flow in/out 2) Heat Transfer, Q and 3) Work, W
This energy exchange is governed by the First Law of Thermodynamics

Internal Energy ?
Internal energy, U (total) or u (per unit mass) is the sum of all
microscopic forms of energy.
It can be viewed as the sum of the kinetic and potential energies of the
molecules
Due to the vibrational, translational and rotational energies of the moelcules.
Proportional to the temperature of the gas.
