2 Lecture 3. Similarity and flow motion patterns

3 Similarity and non-dimensionalization Different ways to perform measurement: - expensive and impossible in most cases1. Actual system under actual operation condition 1. Geometrically similar 2. Actual system under modified condition 3. Model system under controlled condition - expensive and impossible in many cases - low cost and possible - enable application of measured properties with model system and modified condition to actual system under actual condition. Similarity Requirements of similarity 2. Kinematically similar 3. Dynamically similar - same shape, the same ratios of all corresponding dimensions - same velocity directions and constant ratio of magnitudes - same force directions and constant ratio of magnitudes - convert measured properties into dimensionless numbers Non-dimensionalization 1. Convenience in presentation 2. Independent of unit system 3. Used as guide for selection of optimal geometrical and operating conditions

8 Common dimensionless parameters Rayleigh number Richardson number- for density-stratified flows Marangoni number- for convection induced by surface-tension gradients - ratio of potential energy associate with gravity and kinetic energy. - for free thermal convection - for concentration gradients - for temperature gradients

9
9 Common dimensionless parameters Taylor number - for rotation flows – rotation rate Rossby number - for rotation flows - ratio of inertia and Coriolis forces Strouhal number - for periodic vortex shedding from bluff objects f – frequency of vortex shedding Knudsen number - for gas – mean free path

10
10 Patterns of fluid motion Pathlines - trajectories of individual fluid particles - may be visualized with multiple exposed particle images Stroboscopic illumination of oil drop in laminar pipe flow

11
11 Patterns of fluid motion Timelines - each formed by a set of fluid particles at a previous instant in time, and displaced in time as the particles move Consecutive rows of hydrogen bubbles indicating Velocity profiles a flat plat boundary layer - may be visualized with Hydrogen-bubble technique

12
12 Patterns of fluid motion Streaklines Vortex flow behind a yawed cylinder visualized with mixture of ink, milk and alcohol - may be visualized with dye lines in water flow - each formed by locus of all fluid particles passing through a fixed position

13
13 Patterns of fluid motion Streamlines - instantaneous curves tangent to the velocity vector of flow, i.e. Smoke lines around an airfoil model in a wind-tunnel - may be visualized with smoke lines in stead air flow Trailing vortices behind an inclined delta-wing visualized by a tuft screen - may be visualized with tuft screen method

14
14 Patterns of fluid motion In steady flows, pathlines, streaklines and streamlines coincide. In unsteady flows, they may be vastly different. Red – Pathline Blue – Streakline Dash – Sreamline
