Lecture 11 Conservation of Mass Solids amp Fluids Conservation Laws Solid mechanics approach Create a free body diagram and analyze the forces on an object Can we use the same approach for fluids Yes but for fluids it is difficult to identify a body of matter readily If we follow this approach as in solid mechanics we deal with a control system or control mass of fluid A control system system can change size and shape but it must always contain the same material Control Mass CM or Control System CS In fluid mechanics the CM or CS approach can be used only in special situations such as fluids at rest For moving fluids such an approach is not very useful since it involves following the fluid particles around A more serious difficulty We are often interested in the forces that a fluid exerts on a fixed surface eg a fan or an airplane so following fluid particles is a wasteful exercise This leads to the concept of Control Volume CV A CV is a designated region in space of fixed shape and volume Its bounding surface called the control surface is fixed The identity and amount of matter contained within the CV may change with time The use of CVs does not permit the direct application of laws of physics from mechanics Why Laws of mechanics are applicable only to a control mass and not to a control volume We need to derive equations for control volumes Two Approaches Lagrangian Follow individual fluid particles and see what they experience 0 Eulerian Observe changes at a fixed point in space Local and Material Rates For a fluid in motion a point fixed in space is occupied by different material particles at different times The rate of change recorded by a probe fixed in space does not give the rate of change of property of any material particle To measure this the probe has to move with the fluid particle The fixed probe measures the local rate of change The rate of change experienced by a fluid particle is called the material or substantive rate ofchange Local and Material Rates The local rate of change ofa X9 t propertyB is denoted by The material rate of change These two are related and this relation is given by the Reynolds Transport Theorem Reynolds Transport Theorem The Reynolds Transport Theorem relates the rate of change of a property associated with a CV to the material rate of change of that property If we consider any property B then
