Fluid Statics (Chap # 02) Fluid will be static or moving in such a way that there is no relative motion between particles (rigid body motion of fluids). Only pressure, its distribution within the fluid and the fluid weight will be considered. Shear stresses (τ) will be zero throughout. Applications: Forces on submerged surfaces (dams & bridge pillars/column). Pressure measurements (manometers). Buoyancy and floatation (stability of ships). Hydraulic pistons/actuators (Pascal’s principle). Fluid rotation (fuel tanks in satellites, centrifuges, astrophysics (accretion disks)). Dams Ships Manometers Centrifuge
Pressure at a Point in a Fluid Triangular fluid element detached and considered to have angular orientation of the fluid element w.r.t pressure force. pressure forces in the x- direction not shown for simplicity. Acceleration of fluid element as rigid body can be involved. Pressure = Normal force per unit area at a point acting on a given plane in a fluid.
