CIVIL EN 3130 SPRING 2015 LECTURE 6 Contents 1 Chapter summary 2 Reading Chapter 1 of the text book Homework NA CIVIL EN 3130 LECTURE 6 CHAPTER SUMMARY 2 1 Chapter summary We conclude this chapter by highlighting the major points we covered 9 Continuum J Considering the MOIGCUIar StrUCture of matter physical uid characteristics such as density are not well de ned at every point J Thus in order to formulate a mathematical basis for uid mechanics it is necessary to replace the actual molecular structure of uid with a hypothetical continuous medium called a J The continuum has NO h0es or VOidS and therefore has properties that can be described by continuous functions 2 De nition of a uid J A uid is de ned as a substance that deforms continuously Or FIOWS when subjected to a non zero shear stress T no matter how small that shear stress may be J The Rate of Deformation of the uid an be ob Dl 5 served to be directly proportional to the applied shear stress 739 ie 739 oc i J When the relationship between applied shear stress and rate of defor mation is Linear we call the uid aqgewtonian uid In non Newtonian uid there is aelationship between applied shear stress an rate of deformation Assume Newtonian Linear vel dudy CIVIL EN 3130 LECTURE 6 CHAPTER SUMMARY 3 Dimensions and units J In dealing with uid characteristics it is necessary to develop a System by which characteristics can be described both qualitatively and guantitatively S l Qualitativer in terms of primary quantities or basic dimensions LTM or LTF1 In turn these primary quantities are used to describe secondary quantities eg area stress velocity etc J These characteristics are described DSC J The Quantitative description consists of both a num ber and a unit by which various quantities can be compared Two com mon systems of units were discussed the International System SI and M the US Customary System USC Q1 Viscosity J From a simple plate experiment NGWtOH39S Law Of Viscosity t7 ududy lcan be observed where the the constant of proportionality u is termed the dynamic or absolute viscosity of the uid Kinematic J The viscosity of a uid is a measure of the uids resistance to the rate at which it ows Fluids with High viscosity ow at slower rates than those Wlth lOWGI39 VISCOSItIGS When subjected to the same shear stress J To arrive at Newton s law of viscosity it was shown that the

ned as the pressure exerted by a Vapor on its liquid counterpart when the two are in equilibrium and is a function of temperature only J Bomng of a liquid occurs when the vapor pressure of that liquid equals the surrounding atmospheric pressure acting on the uid J CaVitation is the formation and subsequent collapse of vapor bubbles in owing uid In severe cases it can cause structural damage to hydraulic systems Pump System F Surface Tension J Surface tension is a property of a liquid that causes the surface to act as a membrane that can support a ten sile force Speci cally it is a force per unit lengih 0 l J Phenomena in which surface tension is an important factor include such things as liquid drop formation capillary Rise and the ow of thin lms Bubble formation Homework Problem 163

Introduction to uid statics 0 Just as in your study of solid mechanics we will begin our study of uid mechanics by considering uid Stat iCS 0 That is considering Newton s second law ZFMQ9 lt1 a we will speci cally consider the case where acceleration advdt0 in this chapter 0 This occurs when the uid is at Res39t or the entire uid body is moving with a constant velocity 0 In both cases there will be no Shea Iquot stresses in the uid and only forces due to normal stresses or pressure will be acting on the uid Maes 0 Thus our primary objective in this chapter is to formulatzrelationships for Pressure and its variation throughout a uid in the absence of shear stresses o This will allow us to calculate for example pressure forces exerted on Surfaces submerged such as dams and tank walls o In the nal section of this chapter we will consider the special case of a uid accelerating as a Rigid bOdy or in relative equilib rium where there are no shear stresses present 0 Although Are not strictly speaking rigid body motion problems uid statics problems they are covered in this chapter because the pressure relationships and the analysis of such problems are similar to those for uids At

result is known as PascaL I 5 LaW named in honor of Blaise Pasca1 1 We record this result below Pascal s law The pressure p at a point in a uid at rest is I ndependent of direction or equivalently we have The pressure p at a point in a uid at rest is the Same all directions Notes 0 This result also holds for uids in MOtion if there are no v shear stresses consider the exercise on the following page o If there are shear stresses present in the uid the normal stresses at a point are not necessarily The same in all directions x o In such cases we de ne the pressure as the Average of any three

pressure at a point varies with D i FECt ion 0 Speci cally we showed that the P res S U re at a point is in dependent of direction for a uid with no Shea Iquot St res S o This result is known as Pascals LaW 0 However we now want to ask an important follow up question QUESTION How does the pressure vary from point to point ANSWER To answer this question we will again consider a small element of uid taken from some arbitrary position within the uid mass The F0 rce 5 acting on the element consist of two types 0 Body Forces A force that acts over the V01ume of a body or a force acting throughout the a mass of a body The most common body force and the only one we will consider here is the G ravity Force or weight of the ele ment W 0 SU FfaCe FOFCES A force that acts across an

variation in a static incompressible uid 0 For an Incompressible uid there will be no change in volume and thus density when the uid mass is subjected to a compres sion force 0 Thus neglecting the small variations of g with elevation the speci c weight 7 pg of the uid is constant 0 That means equation T from the previous subsection can be di rectly integrated to obtain an expression for p as a
