Content Primary definitions Types of flow Reynolds number Navier – Stokes equations Numerical solutions methods used in flow problems Navier – Stokes solution by FDM for laminar flow Numerical results get by FDM and FEM methods for laminar flow 2

Fluid, flow - definitions Types of flow:  Laminar flow  Transitional flow  Turbulent flow Fluid A continuous, amorphous substance (liquid or gas) whose molecules move freely past one another and that has the tendency to assume the shape of its container. Flow The motion of the fluid 3

Laminar flow  occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers,  steady-state -, (1)  in nonscientific terms laminar flow is "smooth," „orderly”  generally happens when dealing with small pipes and low flow velocities; can be regarded as a series of liquid cylinders in the pipe, where the innermost parts flow the fastest, and the cylinder touching the pipe isn't moving at all, Pic.1. Laminar flow Pic.2. Velocity distribution in the pipe for laminar flow 4

Turbulent flow  characterized by chaotic, stochastic property changes,  unsteady – state flow - (2)  in nonscientific terms turbulent flow is „rough, „random”, „chaotic”  vortices, eddies and wakes make the flow unpredictable; happens in general at high flow rates and with larger pipes, Pic.3. Turbulent flow Pic.4. Velocity distribution in the pipe for turbulent flow 5

Transitional flow  situation as the flow speed was increased the dye fluctuates and one observes intermittent bursts  mixture of laminar and turbulent flow, with turbulence in the center of the pipe, and laminar flow near the edges; each of these flows behave in different manners in terms of their frictional energy loss while flowing, and have different equations that predict their behavior. Pic.5. Transitional flow 6

Reynolds number Reynolds number Re Dimensionless number gives a measure of the ratio of inertial forces ρV 2 /L to viscous forces μV/L 2 and consequently quantifies the relative importance of these two types of forces for given flow conditions V – mean fluid velocity, m/s L – characteristic linear dimension (traveled lenght of fluid), m μ – dynamic viscosity of the fluid, Pa·s τ – shear stress, Pa - shear rate, 1/s υ - kinematic viscosity of the fluid, m^2/s ρ – density of the fluid, kg/m^3 For flow in a pipe of diameter D, experimental observations show that: laminar flow Re < 2300, transitional flow 23004000.

Navier-Stokes equations  named after Claude-Louis Navier * and and George Gabriel Stokes**, describe the motion of fluid substances, [* Claude Louis Marie Henri Navier (10 February 1785 in Dijon – 21 August 1836 in Paris) born was a French engineer and physicist who specialized in mechanics ], [** Sir George Gabriel Stokes (13 August 1819 Skreen, County Sligo, Ireland - – 1 February 1903 Cambridge, England), was a mathematician and physicist who made important contributions to fluid dynamics, optics, and mathematical physics ],  describe the physics of many things of academic and economic interest; may be used to model the weather, ocean currents, water flow in a pipe, air flow around a wing, and motion of stars inside a galaxy, design of aircraft and cars, the study of blood flow, the design of power stations, the analysis of pollution etc., 8

Navier-Stokes equations  used for mathematical characteristic of flow phenomenons in a system with known geometry,  arise from applying: o Newton's second law to fluid motion, o assumption that the fluid stress is the sum of a diffusing viscous term (proportional to the gradient of velocity), o pressure term, general form of the equations of fluid motion (6) (7) u – flow velocity vector, ρ – fluid density, p – pressure, S - deviatoric, stress tensor, g – gravitation acceleration, μ – dynamic viscosity of the fluid, 9

Numerical solutions Pic.6. Schematic of finding the solution using numerical methods [2]  Numerical approximation methods used for solving differential equations: o FDM (polish MRS) – Finite Difference Method, Curvilinear Finite Difference, o FEM (polish MES) – Finite Element Method, o BEM - Boundary Element Method, o FVM (polish MOS) – Finite Volume Method o NI (polish CN) – Numerical Integration.  Steps in FDM: o Aproximate the solutions to differential equations by replacing derivative expressions with aproximately equivalent difference quatients.  Steps in FEM: o Finding aproximate solutions of partial differential equations as well as of integral equations: I.Discretization of the domain into a set of finite elements. II.Defining an approximate solution over the element. III.Weighted integral formulation of the differential equation. IV.Substitute the approximate solution and get the algebraic equation.  Steps in FVM: o Represanting and evaluating partial differential equations in the form of algebraic equations. 10
