AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Basic Aero – Why? How? What do we have so far? Why are we looking into aerodynamics? To determine the forces acting on a vehicle in flight Remember aerodynamic forces arise from two natural phenomena How are we going to proceed ?  Using Laws of Physics to quantify the interaction between the vehicle and the environment it is evolving in. What do we have so far ? Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Aerodynamic Tools Needed: Governing Laws We are going to need the 3 following physical principles to describe the interaction between the vehicle and its associated flow field: Conservation of Mass Continuity Equation (§§ ) Newton’s 2nd Law (and Conservation of Momentum) Euler’s and Bernoulli’s Equations (§§ ) Conservation of Energy Energy Equation (§§ ) Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Conservation of Mass – The Continuity Equation Physical Principle: Mass can neither be created nor destroyed (in other words, input = output). Eq.(4.2) Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Streamline A streamline is a line that is tangent to the local velocity vector. If the flow is steady, the streamline is the path that a particle follows. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Remarks on Continuity The equation we just derived assumes that both velocities and densities are uniform across areas 1 and 2. In reality, both velocities and densities will vary across the area Continuity Equation is extensively used in the design and operation of wind tunnels and rocket nozzles (we will see how later). A stream tube is delimited by 2 streamlines and does not have to be bounded by a solid wall. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Compressible Versus Incompressible Flows Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Continuity for Incompressible Flows All fluids are compressible in reality. However, many flows are “incompressible enough” so that the incompressibility assumption holds. Incompressibility is an excellent model for Flows of liquids (e.g. water and oil) Air at low speed (V < 100 m/s or 225 mi/h) Equation of Continuity for Incompressible Flows reduces to So that if A2 < A1 then V2 > V1. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Continuity – Sample Problem 1 A convergent duct was found in the basement of Randolph. The inlet and exit areas are measured to be Ai = 5m2 and Ae = 2m2. Assuming we use this duct with an inlet velocity of Vi = 9 mi/h, find the exit velocity. First, we need to be consistent with the unit system. Let’s work in SI units. Vi = 9 mi/h = 9x1609/3600 m/s  Vi = 4 m/s. Vi << 100 m/s so the flow is considered incompressible. From Incompressible Continuity, Therefore, the exit velocity will be 10 m/s. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Continuity – Sample Problem 2 Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Momentum Equation Continuity is a great addition to our toolbox, however it says nothing about pressure. Why is pressure important? Let’s look at Newton’s 2nd Law: Sum of the forces = Time rate of change of momentum F = d(mv)/dt F = m dV/dt assuming m = const. F = m a The pressure is going to translate into force, which by Newton’s 2nd Law results in change of momentum. Assuming incompressibility (m = const), this will result in change of velocity (thus impacting performance for example). To find momentum, simply apply F = ma to an infinitesimally small fluid element moving along a streamline. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Momentum Equation – Free Body Diagram v O Streamline p F = ma dx dz dy Assume fluid element is moving in the x-direction. 3 types of force act on the element: Pressure force (normal to the surface) p Shear stress (friction, parallel to the surface) tw Gravity r dxdydz g Ignore gravity (smaller than other forces) and assume inviscid flow (non-viscous i.e. no friction), balance of the forces on x. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Momentum Equation – Force Balance Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Momentum for Incompressible Flows – Bernoulli’s Equation For incompressible flows, r = const. Integrating Euler’s equation between 2 points along a streamline gives: This equation is known as Bernoulli’s Equation. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Description of Bernoulli’s Equation Static Pressure Pressure felt by an object or person suspended in the fluid and moving with it. Can be thought of as internal energy. Dynamic Pressure Pressure due to the fluid motion. Can be thought of as kinetic energy. Total (stagnation) Pressure Pressure that would be felt if the fluid was brought isentropically to a stop. Can be thought of as total energy. Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

3 New Tools – Continuity, Euler, and Bernoulli’s Equations Continuity Equation r A V = const Assumptions: steady flow. Euler’s Equation dp = - r V dV Assumptions: steady, inviscid flow. Bernoulli’s Equation Assumptions: steady, inviscid, incompressible flow along a streamline. Euler and Bernoulli’s equations are essentially applications of Newton’s 2nd Law to fluid dynamics.

Practical Applications By combining Continuity, Euler, and Bernoulli’s equation, one can obtain the velocity at any point on an aircraft assuming surrounding conditions are known (either through measurements or using Standard Atmosphere). Two major applications for this: Low-Speed Subsonic Wind Tunnel testing/designing Flight measurements of velocity Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Wind Tunnel Calculations From Bernoulli, between points 1 and 2: Using Continuity: Combining the two, we get: Since the ratio of throat to reservoir area (A2/A1) is fixed for wind tunnel and r is constant for low-speed (incompressible) flows, the quantity driving the tunnel is p1-p2. But how can we determine p1-p2 ??? Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Wind Tunnels – Sample Problem 1 Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Wind Tunnels – Sample Problem 1 Solution Height of liquid: Dh = 10cm = 0.1m Specific weight of liquid mercury: w = (1.36x104)x9.8 = 1.33x105 N/m2 Actual pressure difference: p1-p2 = w Dh = 1.33x104 N/m2. To find V2 from Bernoulli, use We computed p1-p2, A1/A2 = 15 is given, so we need to find r. Since we are in a low-speed wind tunnel, flow is incompressible, so r = const, which means we can compute it at any point in the tunnel. Since p1 and T1 are given, use Equation of State to find r = r 1: Combining all the results we get V2 = 144 m/s (slightly over the incompressible velocity limit, which means compressibility effects should be taken into account).

Measurement of Airspeed (§4.11) Bernoulli’s equation provides an easy method for determining the velocity of any fluid Therefore, we need to know p and p0 Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Total (stagnation) Pressure (p0 ) Measurement The total pressure is easy to measure if the flow direction is known. An opened-end tube aligned with the flow direction is enough. This type of tube is called "Pitot probe” (named after Henri Pitot who invented it in 1732; see §4.3 for historical background) Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Static Pressure (P) Measurement The static pressure is also easy to measure using a tube with a close end and pressure taps around its circumference. “Static probe” Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009
Dynamic Pressure Measurement Finally, it is possible to measure directly the difference between stagnation and static pressure by combining the Pitot and static probes into a Pitot-static probe (!). “Pitot-Static probe” Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009

Measurement of Airspeed – Sample Problem Solution From Standard Atmosphere (App. B), at 5000ft, p = 1761 lb/ft2. Pitot tube measures stagnation pressure so p0 = 1818 lb/ft2. Density is found from measured temperature and tabulated pressure = p/(RT) = 1761/(1716*505)  r = 2.03x10-3 slug/ft3. 7.6% difference Virginia Tech Lecture 2 1 September 2009
