VELTECH Dr RR & Dr SR TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT OF AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING U3MEA03 FLUID MECHANICS AND MACHINERY OBJECTIVES To familiarize with conservation laws and dimensional analysis to fluid flow problems To familiarize flow through closed conduits and hydraulic machines
UNIT I-BASIC CONCEPTS AND PROPERTIES Fluid – definition, distinction between solid and fluid - Units and dimensions - Properties of fluids - density, specific weight, specific volume, specific gravity, temperature, viscosity, compressibility, vapour pressure, capillary and surface tension - Fluid statics: concept of fluid static pressure, absolute and gauge pressures - pressure measurements by manometers and pressure gauges.
Fluid Mechanics Fluid mechanics is that branch of science which deals with the behaviour of fluids (liquids or gases) at rest as well as in motion. Thus this branch of science deals with the static, kinematics and dynamic aspects of fluids. The study of fluids at rest is called fluid statics. The study of fluids in motion, where pressure forces are not considered, is called fluid kinematics and if the pressure forces are also considered for the fluids in motion, that branch of science is called fluid dynamics.
Field of Fluid Mechanics can be divided into 3 branches: Fluid Statics: mechanics of fluids at rest Kinematics: deals with velocities and streamlines w/o considering forces or energy Fluid Dynamics: deals with the relations between velocities and accelerations and forces exerted by or upon fluids in motion
APPLICATIONS Mechanics of fluids is extremely important in many areas of engineering and science. Examples are: Biomechanics – Blood flow through arteries Meteorology and Ocean Engineering – Movements of air currents and water currents Chemical Engineering – Design of chemical processing equipment
Mechanical Engineering – Design of pumps, turbines, air-conditioning equipment, pollution-control equipment, etc. Civil Engineering – Transport of river sediments – Pollution of air and water – Design of piping systems – Flood control systems
Dimensions and Units Before going into details of fluid mechanics, we stress importance of units In U.S, two primary sets of units are used: – 1. SI (Systeme International) units – 2. English units

UNIT III-FLOW THROUGH PIPES Viscous flow - Navier - Stoke's equation (Statement only) - Shear stress, pressure gradient relationship - laminar flow between parallel plates - Laminar flow through circular tubes (Hagen poiseulle's) - Hydraulic and energy gradient - flow through pipes - Darcy -weisback's equation - pipe roughness -friction factor-minor losses - flow through pipes in series and in parallel - power transmission
UNIT V-PUMPS Pumps: definition and classifications - Centrifugal pump: classifications, working principles, velocity triangles, specific speed, efficiency and performance curves - Reciprocating pump: classification, working principles, indicator diagram, work saved by air vessels and performance curves - cavitations in pumps -priming- slip- rotary pumps: working principles of gear, jet and vane pumps.
